Water depth at the port is about 22 feet, with the depth in some entrance-channel areas as shallow as 20 feet. The depths create a narrow margin of safety for the Boheme, the only cruise ship sailing from the port. The 450-foot vessel draws 20 feet when fully loaded.

Port revenue from cruise business totaled $138,000 last year, the first year of the Boheme's operation. This includes fees charged for each passenger, docking and water. The vessel offers seven-day cruises.
