In winter, Pärnu Bay is usually frozen. The average length of the ice period is two to three months, and an icebreaker is needed to keep the port open. AS Pärnu Sadam takes care of ice breaking in the water area of the port. Ice breaking on the public waterway entering the port is the responsibility of the State Maritime Administration.
