View looking south-southwest.  Just beyond the docked cruise ship is the bay that is used for repairing large vessels and oil rigs—note the vertical towers of the rigs.

On the right  (southwest) side of the image, the blue water is where the Marsa harbor was/is located and remains from the Roman Period (NT Era) have been found there.

The water just beyond the canon, spreading diagonally across the image is the main portion of the Grand Harbor. The cruise ship on the right side of the image is docked in the major portion of the Grand Harbor.

It is probable that the Alexandrian ship that Paul departed on after his three–month stay on the island set sail from one of these bays.

Acts 28:11 After three months we put out to sea in a ship that had wintered in the island. It was an Alexandrian ship with the figurehead of the twin gods Castor and Pollux.
