It really depends on what time the ship arrives in port, clears immigration, customs, etc. Yes, it can be as early as (or even earlier than) 8:30 AM. But if the ship arrives late or there is a delay with customs and immigration, it could be later than 8:30 AM! Late morning flights can be a nail biter when this happens.
