The most direct route from the Arabian Gulf to Yas Marina is to enter Abu Dhabi inner-coastal waters at Mina Zayed and transit southeast through the Umm Al Nar Channel towards Yas Island.

Continue along that same course for approximately 6.5 n.m. and enter the Yas Channel at the intersection of Balrimayd Island and Al Sammaliyah Island. When entering the Yas Channel please respect the cardinal markers.

Continue within the channel bearing south-southeast until passing the Aldar HQ building (large, round, coin-shaped building) on your starboard side.

Continue past Al Raha Beach and Al Bandar residential communities (three large residential towers that look like steps into the water), respecting the wake free zone.

You will then see the visitor berth of Yas Marina ahead of you. Continue past this and turn left at the marina entrance.
