Scuba Diving and Snorkeling
Diving is a popular sport, and divers can be found in areas shared with recreational boaters. As diving's popularity increases, it becomes more important for both boaters and divers to take special precautions. As a vessel operator, you should be able to recognize a diver-down flag floating in the area of the divers. Stay the legal distance away from a diver-down flag and watch for divers surfacing. For their own safety, divers should always display the diver-down flag and stay close to the flag. Anchor your boat securely. Never dive or snorkel alone.
