Le chenal de Broce à Ston est balisé par 5 feux rouges à bâbord et 2 feux verts à tribord.
Attention à une obstruction submergée à environ 70 m au NNW de l'extrémité du môle de Broce, il faut passer à l'extrémité du môle pour l'éviter.
A partir de Broce rester au milieu du canal. Il y a très peu de fond en dehors du chenal.

Attention, les bateaux engagés dans le chenal ont priorité.

On peut s'amarrer le long du quai au fond du chenal, par 3 m de fond.
On peut mouiller au milieu du chenal, à l'écart du quai.

Bonne protection.
