Pilotage is important for maritime safety. Our local pilots are expert ship handlers who can manoeuvre ships through congested waters, such as harbours at Honiara and Noro port. They are responsible for completing the berthing or unberthing of the ships by co-ordinating the ships position with the tugs and shore linesman through radio communication. They are transported from shore to an inbound ship and from outbound ship back ashore by this high-speed pilot boats.
