Recently an unauthorised diver was asked to leave the harbour.

Our Harbour Master wishes to state: "We welcome responsible divers at the harbour but unauthorized diving within the harbour itself is not permitted and is a prosecutable offense under harbour byelaws. The police were informed but no further action was taken because the diver immediately left the harbour. Be advised: Propellor injuries can be fatal and horrific. It can jeopardise someone's livelihood if they were to accidentally run over a diver. Never dive unauthorized within the harbour or at the entrance. If necessary contact the Harbour Master for advice."

Divers must receive professional training and follow a code of conduct https://www.bsac.com/safety/safe-diving-guide/the-divers-code-of-conduct/
