PORT ENTRY: The port of Ventspils can be identified from a considerable distance by its church with a tall spire, located in the town centre on the S side of the river. A pilot watch tower, 20m high, stands close E of the root of the S 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 1 knot, increasing to 2 knots near the entrance. The current sets N or S along the coast in the port entrance, depending on the wind. It may attain rates of 3 to 4 knots.

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.
