De nuit le canal comporte des feux (rouges à Bâbord, verts à Tribord).

Le passage des navires de plus de 50 T est régulé par des signaux à la station de signaux de Rt Jadrija et au fort de Sv Ana à Sibenik. Deux sphères noires ou deux feux verts verticaux indiquent que le chenal est libre. Un cône rouge pointe en bas ou deux feux rouges verticaux signifient qu'il y a un navire dans le chenal.
La vitesse est limitée à 6 nœuds.

A l'E de Rt Jadrija, se trouvent deux baies où l'on peut mouiller. Les criques sur la rive S du canal sont dans une base navale.
