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.
