There's no easy way to tell if you are in the port or not, less if you are entering or leaving - you may try to do an object query in a port area to see which chart objects there are, that could perhaps be used to detect you are in a port if, say, encountered in the vicinity of the boat - I really doubt you will find any that could be reliably used, especially if you are not sailing a tanker and entering a big commercial port...
