FOR YOUR SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OTHERS, PLEASE ADHERE TO THE FOLLOWING SAFETY GUIDELINES:

  1. KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE: Maintain a safe distance from dredging equipment and associated vessels. Be aware of posted signage indicating restricted zones.
  2. FOLLOW MARKED CHANNELS: Stay within designated channels and avoid venturing into areas marked for dredging operations. These channels are specifically designated for safe passage.
  3. LISTEN TO MARINE BAND RADIO: Monitor VHF Channel 16 for updates and instructions from City Fire Patrol regarding dredging operations, navigational changes, or any emergencies.
  4. REDUCED SPEEDS: Operate your vessel at a reduced speed in the vicinity of dredging activities. Slow speeds minimize wake and enhance safety for both boaters and workers.
  5. COOPERATE WITH CREW INSTRUCTIONS: If directed by dredging crew or marina personnel, please follow their instructions promptly and respectfully.
  6. DAYTIME NAVIGATION PREFERRED: If possible, plan your boating activities during daylight hours. This enhances visibility for all boaters and ensures safer navigation.
Cooperation from all boaters is vital for the success of this dredging project and the safety of all users of King Harbor.
We appreciate your understanding and commitment to safe boating practices. Let's work together to maintain a safe and enjoyable marina environment! See official notice flyer.
