View the Expected Arrivals (ETAs) of Vessels at Ports

Find information regarding the upcoming ETAs of vessels at ports using the MarineTraffic "Expected Arrivals" page. These are the ways to get to this dedicated page:

  • Click on the "Ports" tab on the MarineTraffic Main Menu and select the "Expected Arrivals" option




  • Click on the "Expected Arrivals" link at the footer section of the MarineTraffic homepage




  • Click on the indication next to Expected Arrivals on a port's InfoWindow (in this case, you get the Expected Arrivals regarding the port which the Port InfoWindow was about through the Port Details page of it)



  • Select the "Expected Arrivals" tab while being at the Details page of a port. Then click on the "Show all" option (in this case, you get the Expected Arrivals regarding the port which the Port Details page was about)



In any case, you will be presented with the "Expected Arrivals" page. Using this page, you will be able to find information on the expected and the actual time of arrivals of any vessel at any port depending on your search terms.



You can also make use of the filtering options to further refine your search criteria



  • Select Fleet: Υou are able to search for the Expected Arrivals of all vessels or of those that belong to any of your fleet(s). Simply, make your selection from the drop-down menu. You can also use the adjacent buttons to view the vessels of any of your fleets on the Live Map or get to the Fleet Management page.
  • Date Range: Select the desired time period for which you want to get your search results. Accepted dates start from 24 hours prior to the current date and can be set up to 60 days ahead for all MarineTraffic users regardless of their subscription plan.

You are also able to toggle between the Port's Local Time or UTC by simply clicking on any of the respective buttons (provided you have defined a certain port as a search term).

In case you want to reset all filters, click on the "Clear filters" option. If you want the filtering options to be retracted click on the "Hide Filters" tab - notice that hiding filters will not reset them.


Once again, you get your search results in rows. Each row represents a record for an expected arrival of a vessel at a port.



For each record, you can be informed on:

  • Expected at port: The next port that the subject vessel is being expected at (click on the name of the port to get to the Port Details page of it).
  • From port: The port from which the subject vessel has departed (as with the previous field, you may click on the name of the port to get to Port Details page of it).
  • Vessel Name: The name of the subject vessel (and her type icon - click on the vessel's name to get to the Vessel Details page of her).
  • Scheduled Arrival: The scheduled arrival of the vessel as it was reported via the vessel's AIS.
  • Estimated Arrival: MarineTraffic's estimation of the arrival based on the incoming AIS-data. When possible we try to provide users with a more accurate estimation regarding the expected arrival of a vessel - most times this estimation has been proven to be more precise than the AIS reported info.
  • Arrived: The actual recorded time of the vessel's arrival at the port (if available)
  • Current Position: Click on the icon to view the current position of the vessel on the MarineTraffic Live Map (provided she is in range)


As always, search results can be ordered by simply clicking on any of the Column Titles (except for the Current Position one, of course). Click twice to get the reversed order of the search results.

Using the options at the bottom of the page you can:

  • get informed about the total number of records found that match your search criteria
  • navigate through search results pages by entering a page number or selecting the next or previous one
  • decide on the desired amount of search results per page (10/20/50)
