Getting there & away
At Tanapag Harbor in Saipan, visiting boats can anchor in the commercial harbour or alongside the pier by the Mobil Tanks. Quarantine, customs and immigration officials handle clearance requirements, and you can get directions from the port captain on VHF Channel 16. You can go straight to Rota (rather than going through Saipan), though its harbour facilities are worse than those of Saipan or Tinian.
Saipan's Francisco C Ada Saipan International Airport (664 3500) is the CNMI's main airport.
