The Galle Port is at the south-western tip of Sri Lanka, in close proximity to the East-West shipping route, along which over approx. 300 vessels pass by every day. The Galle Port has four berths and 660 meters of quay.
The Galle Port and its OPL area are primarily used for leisure activities and services. One of the most common services performed here is the embarking and disembarking of sea marshals on vessels plying the East-West shipping route, for which the Galle Port is well-placed to cater for, owing to its location and proximity to the route.
