You must fly a dive flag if you are:
- Diving from a vessel or diving unaccompanied from the shore.
- In an area where there may be passing vessels.
You must stay within 200m of a clearly displayed flag which may be:
- On a vessel – 600mm x 600mm.
- On a buoy or float attached to diver with a dive flag – 200mm x 200mm.
If you are approaching a vessel flying a dive flag, slow down to below 5 knots and look out for bubbles indicating a diver below.
|Remember to fly your flag high so it can be seen|
