About Port of Skagen
A geographical focal point and Denmark’s largest fishing port

The Port of Skagen is a geographical hub for ship traffic in the waters between the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. About 6000 landings of fish are made annually. And the port is called by more than 650 cargo ships, an increasing number of cruise ships and a very large number of yachts.

Service Team Skagen offers repair and service in one place for all types of vessels – both ships along the quay and the many ships that are anchored off Skagen. We also offer bunkering by ship or via land connection and receive waste products, including oil-contaminated water, waste oil and wastewater.

With a water depth of 11 meters, strong shipyard competencies, a dry dock, and the possibility to accommodate ships of more than 330 meters, the capacity of maritime service is strongly represented at the Port of Skagen.

The port’s 24-hour port guard is always ready to advise and assist the vessels which call at the port. The port guard can be reached by telephone +45 9844 1346.
