Port approaches:

The NW approach channel leads SE from Lighted Buoy B (57°28’.52N, 21°25’.91E) to the Ventspils Outer Harbour protected by two, N and S, breakwaters, and then into the Fishing Harbour and Marina located on the S side of the River Venta estuary. Another option is choosing Lighted Buoy A (57°26’.3N, 21°24.7E) which marks the seaward entrance of the W approach channel. Both approach channels are indicated by lighted ranges. The rear range light of the NW channel is displayed from a prominent framework tower, 35m high, standing 1.5 miles SE of the harbour entrance.

The port of Ventspils can be identified from a considerable distance by its conspicuous church with a tall spire, located in the town centre on the S side of the river. A conspicuous pilot watch tower, 20m high, stands close E of the root of the S breakwater. A prominent group of storage tanks is situated near the root of the N breakwater. The Ventspils Marina offers 110m mooring length of pier at a depth of 3.6m. Tides are negligible, but the water level fluctuates with wind conditions and may differ by 0.3m above or below the mean. Currents in the river average knot, increasing to 2 knots near the entrance. The current sets N or S along the coast in the port approaches, depending on the wind. It may attain rates of 3 to 4 knots.
