The port consists of two separate basins. Traffic port with guest spots for yachts and a fishing harbour.
South of the Fishing Harbour is Ebeltoft Skudehavn and north of the Traffic Harbour is the Wooden Ship Harbour. A 200 m long and 50 m wide gutter leads to the Transport Harbour and Wooden Ship Harbour. On the sides of the gutter from Trafikhavn to Wooden Ship Harbour, sanding up can occur, which is why the gutter can be narrow. Largest ships that can navigate the harbour: Length 45 m, width 10 m, and draft 4.3 m. The difference between the medium-high tide and the medium-low tide is 0.3 m. Winds can provide up to 1.0 m of low tide. No current of importance. There is a speed limit of 3 knots.
Skudehavnen is surrounded by red wooden houses in the style of Skagen's red harbour- and warehouses, which creates a very special atmosphere.
Among the buildings are the harbour office, as well as newly built bath and toilet facilities.
