Marine Traffic

With the calm warm weather this week and approach of spring there has been a marked increase in vessel traffic in the reserve this week.  We have been averaging 5-10 vessels a day, mainly eco tour boats like this large one in the photo.springtideRecently there was an incident where a boater traveled through the reserve well in excess of the 7 knot speed limit.  Fortunately we have a good relationship with Pedder Bay Marina and I was able to contact them and someone spoke with the operator.  In my experience, the staff and management at the marina are always very cooperative and are willing to work with us to ensure that boaters are aware of the rules and that repeat offenders get reported or restricted from using their facilities.  Thanks Pedder Bay Marina!
