The approach is straightforward with Black Rock the main hazard situated in the middle of the entrance to the Estuary well marked by a lit beacon and a lit East Cardinal Buoy. Vessels inbound for Falmouth Harbour should round the Docks Wharves and may use the old observatory tower as a conspicuous skyline mark for the Yacht Haven approach. The approach to the Visitors Yacht Haven is dredged to 1.5m below Chart Datum and is very well marked using large orange triangular leading marks.
