Calshot Harbour is the only way on or off Tristan da Cunha. The harbour is too small for ships to dock, and the weather in the South Atlantic often prevents disembarkation onto smaller boats. In such cases, ships are forced to drop anchor offshore and wait for the weather to improve.
This image shows a pontoon heading out to offload essential supplies from the MV Baltic Trader.
