Maintain neutral buoyancy to avoid knocking or brushing
against marine life.
Coral is alive and easily damaged. Avoid touching, grabbing
or standing on coral. It is illegal to collect corals, shells,
or rather sea creatures.
Please be careful with your fins, as sand from fin movement
can injure or smother small sea creatures.
The undersides of rocks are home to small creatures that
cannot live anywhere else. Please leave rocks, shells and
coral in place for the reef dwellers who need them.
Killing, damaging, riding or chasing marine life are examples
of poor diver behavior.
Trash do kill marine life. Please collect any trash you
see on the beaches or in the water.
Feeding fish can make them pests, and some may even become
agreesive towards divers. Feeding fish can also harm the
delicate coral reefs.
Use a permanent mooring buoy to secure your boat instead
of dropping anchor.
