Dive Flags – Boaters and divers have a shared responsibility. Boaters must watch for and avoid dive flags (slow no wake within 200 feet) and divers must mark their positions with a dive flag.  Two educational posters have been printed about Posting a lookout and dive flag regulations.  Dive shops and the public may request copies of these posters by contacting the webmaster.  Both posters are copyrighted and appear on this web site with the permission of the designer, Viki Nasu Design Group.
