Prohibited Areas for Navigation

Vessels are restricted from operating in certain areas due to navigational hazards, specific activities being undertaken within the area, or due to being in the vicinity of Whales and Dolphins.  Some of these restricted areas are defined in the Marine and Safety (Motor Boats and Licence) By-laws 2013.

In port areas there are restrictions on operating within the vicinity of certain types of large commercial vessels while they are engaged in port operations these restrictions are defined by the International  Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code.

Guidelines are  also in place that restricted vessels from operating within the vicinity of Whales and Dolphins

Restricted areas can also be determined for set periods of time, due to marine construction, aquatic events, etc. These are determined through the issuing of a Notice to Mariners.
