The Republic of Marshall Islands Ports Authority (RMIPA) oversees the Port of Majuro which consists of Delap and Uliga Docks, the Calalin Channel, Port Fairway and Vessel Anchorage Area within Majuro Atoll. The Uliga Dock is primarily used for interisland cargo and passenger vessels, while the Delap Dock is primarily used for international cargo. The Port of Majuro is the hub of the Marshall Islands economy.

Port of Majuro
The Port of Majuro is the primary gateway for incoming imports that support the lifestyle of RMI residents and families, the operation of private businesses and local and national government agencies, as well as related jobs in both the private and public sectors of the economy.
This is done through:
- Transportation of local residents and cargo between the Port of Majuro and the Outer Islands.
- Transportation of Copra harvested by Outer Island residents to the Port of Majuro where the copra is processed into various coconut products.
- Transshipment point for tuna and other fish harvested by the international fishing fleet inside and outside of the RMI Exclusive Economic Zone.
- International cargo vessels bring in food and supplies and are loaded at the Port of Majuro with general cargo, copra products and fish products to markets in Asia, the Far East and the United States.
The safe and efficient operation of the Port of Majuro is essential to the future operation and expansion of existing businesses, the formation of new economic development opportunities and sustainment of the vital transportation link from Majuro to the Outer Islands.

Delap Dock is the primary commercial cargo dock in Majuro Atoll.
This dock serves international cargo vessels that deliver a wide variety of imported food and household items, construction equipment and materials, diesel fuel, jet fuels, refinedgasoline products and the offloading of copra and loading of coconut oil produced by Tobolar, a coconut processing operation located on the northeast side of Delap Dock. International fishing vessels also make occasional use of Delap Dock for purse seine net repairs, fuel resupplies and other maintenance. Local stevedores from Majuro Stevedore & Terminal Company process the loading and unloading of imports and exports to and from Delap Dock. A cargo handling area, equipment repair shop, container freight station and RMIPA administrative offices support the processing and storage of containers and general cargo. The Marshalls Energy Company (MEC) occupies a significant portion of Delap Dock for its power plant and administrative offices.
Delap Dock consists of the Main Delap Dock, Delap East Dock, Delap West Dock and the Cargo Handling Area.
- The Main Delap Dock is located on the southeast side of Majuro Lagoon, extending east to west about 308m.
- The Delap East Dock is situated on the east side of Delap Dock and is primarily used by interisland cargo vessels for unloading copra to the Tobolar coconut processing operation. The east dock extends approximately 80m north to south.
- The Delap West Dock is located on the west side of the main Delap Dock and extends approximately 58m north to south.
- The Cargo Handling Area is adjacent to the main Delap Dock and is used for the movement and storage of dry and refrigerated containers, general palletized cargo and empty containers. The Cargo Handling Area has several structures that directly support the maintenance and repair of cargo handling equipment, as well as provide enclosed areas for stevedore operations.

Calalin ChannelSee More
Port FairwaySee More
The physical width of Majuro Lagoon is roughly 10 km near the center of Majuro Lagoon east of the channel, but gradually reduces to about 2,400 m near the east end of the Lagoon. The potential width of the Lagoon for the navigation of larger commercial vessels is considerably reduced by the presence of several intermittent shoals within the Lagoon. These shoals essentially reduce the effective width of the port fairway to between 2,400 and 7,500 m. The area of Majuro lagoon west of the Calalin Channel is unable to accommodate commercial vessels due to a vast amount of reef shoals. However, this area can still be used by small boats with local knowledge of the waters.
Vessel Anchorage AreaSee More
Available bathymetry data and navigation information for the anchorage area suggests that water depths generally range between 27 and 47 meters. The bottom is characterized by sand, coral or soft rock and is very capable of providing moorage to incoming fishing or other commercial vessels.

Passenger ferry services to and from Kwajalein Island operated by the US Army run six days per week about 10 times per day. The ferry service is open and free of charge to the public.

Majuro Wave Buoy
The PacIOOS wave buoy off Delap Point, Majuro, measures wave height, direction, period, and sea surface temperature in 30 minute intervals. All data is easily accessible online. To keep the buoy operational, please stay 1NM off Delap Point to avoid collision, and do not tie to the buoy or fish near the buoy to avoid entanglement. The Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) maintains a network of 13 wave buoys throughout the Pacific Islands region. Wave buoys inform commercial operators, ocean users, agency officials, and others about current ocean conditions and are important to make well-informed and safe decisions.
Mooring Location of the buoy: 7º 5.01’ N , 171º 23.51’ E
