With most ports, it's just a matter of luck, time and year, and weather. The places that are sure to be good though are choke points and straights, such as Gibralter. I'm sure you could get some good tonnage in there.

I was caught in the middle of the night, I was submerged and using my snorkel and I was spotted right away by a Destroyer near Alexandria. I could go no where since the depth under my keel was 5 meters. I died when they found me with the spot light. Port Said is very tricky, the water near the Suez is so shallow in most areas. I attempted to go down the Suez, but you know in real life you cant go through the canals, they got locks, but I wanted to give it a shot, but they were heavily escorted.
