There were contraband vessels that from time to time came in anyway, much as there are today with drugs, but since people are relatively large and hard to hide, there was little of that post 1808.
My understanding is that the reason the slave importers didn't have a problem with the law, and didn't try to cheat on it, is because it wasn't economic for them by that point anyway. There was almost no import in the years leading up to that law either.
