What is a tender port?

At a normal port, the ship will pull up to the pier or dock and allows you to get off and walk or ride to whatever activity you are going to be doing. At a tender port the ship is not able to pull up to the pier or dock, usually because the water is too shallow. You will be loaded onto a small vessel called a tender and taken to shore that way.
