Falmouth Inner Harbor is reached via an approach from the south through the north Vineyard Sound Channel. Approaching from the south, first set a course for flashing red bell buoy 16, which is located at an approximate waypoint of N41 32.035 W70 36.498.
Once you have successfully navigated your way to flashing red bell buoy 16, set an approximate course of 16 degrees magnetic for about a half-mile where you will see flashing green 1 on the west inlet jetty. Depths in the inlet between the jetty and in the harbor are reported at six feet.
