If you are operating your vessel in areas close to whale sightings or where whales may migrate, you must:
- Maintain your watch as a boat operator at all times;
- Be aware that whales can surface unexpectedly and may be unaware of boats;
- Keep a look-out at all times for blows, go slow if you see one; and
- Stay clear of whales by providing them with lots of space. Stay at least 200m away.
Note: The distance of 200m is the equivalent to approximately two (2) American Football fields.
