Port Krym (Ukrainian: Порт Крим, Russian: Порт Крым, Crimean Tatar: Qırım Limanı - literally Port Crimea) is a port in Crimea. It is located on the western shore of Kerch Strait, in the north-eastern part of Kerch city. Next to the port is located a train station "Krym" as well as a customs/border checkpoint.

Port Krym has the Kerch Strait ferry connection with Port Kavkaz on the eastern (Russian) shore of the strait.[1] The port is also a base for pilot boats which guide navigation through the Strait of Kerch.[citation needed] The port is served by a fleet of three ships which are property of the Ukrainian State Company "Kerch Ferry" as well as two more ships of the Russian company "ANShIP" which provides railroad ferry connection.
