Approach to Cres harbor is possible through a channel 400 m wide. Landmarks when approaching Cres harbor are the lighthouses on Cape Kovačine (Fl (2) 6s 9m 8M) and on Cape Križice (Fl G 3s 9m 4M). The lighthouse on Cape Kovačine can be used as a way point (44°57,6’ N 14°23,7’ E). After approaching the channel between those two lighthouses, the lighthouse on Cape Melin (Fl R 3s 6m 3M) comes in sight. There is an underwater reef in front of Cape Melin, so a distance of at least 50 m should be kept. The entrance into ACI marina Cres is marked by harbor lights. On the breakwater head there is a red lighthouse (Fl (2) R 5s 7m 3M) and on Martinski Islet a green lighthouse (Fl (2) G 5s 7m 3M). Maximum speed from Cape Kovačine to the marina and 5 knots and within the marina 2 knots.
