The port of Pula lies in a natural bay, well-protected by a peninsula and breakwater. The harbor can be safely approached between the breakwater head (an extention of Cape Kumpar) that is marked by a green lighthouse (Fl G 3s 9m 6M) and Cape Proština that is marked by a red lighthouse (Fl R 3s 9m 5M). The lighthouse on Cape Kumpar can be used as a way point (44°53,2’ N 13°47,7’ E). After that one should steer towards the southern cape of Andrija Islet that is marked by a green lighthouse (Fl G 2s 7m 1M). Andrija Islet can be rounded from the both south and north. When approaching the harbor at night, the passage between Andrija Islet and Katarina Island is well marked by two pairs of red and green lighthouses. After that passage on our way to ACI marina Pula there is another lighthouse on Uljanik Island (Fl G 5s 7m 3M), which has to be rounded before the marina comes in sight. Attention should be paid to several large iron buoys, which are randomly anchored along the described course leading to the marina. Maximum speed in the port is 8 knots.
