This List of North American ports is a list of the major ports of North America.

Contents

Introduction

This list consists primarily of shipping ports of North America, but also includes some that are primarily or significantly devoted to other purposes: cruises,[1] fishing,[2] local delivery,[3] marinas.[4] For major ports ranked by cargo tonnage see: for the US, List of ports in the United States,[5] for Canada see reference,[6] and for world ranking see List of world's busiest ports by cargo tonnage.[7] Similar Canada, US, and Mexico rankings also exist for container volume and value. All are listed in geographic order where possible (marine: coastwise from north to south or east to west; riverine downstream to mouth). Other notes: seasonal,[8] drydock,[9] river mile (in statute miles unless noted) and side of river (facing downstream); [10][11][12][13][14] Mississippi Basin;[15] Dubai Ports World controversy.[16]
