It’s important to know where you can enter the water and how. In many Countries use of a marker buoy is obligatory and it’s always advisable. This highly visible device will indicate your presence at great distances, and boats should stay well clear of you. You must not enter the water near ports and boat launching stages or ramp areas, or in mooring and anchorage areas and the like.

Even when using a marker buoy- always keep an ear open for the sound of propellers coming your way and don’t hesitate to wave your arms and splash water to show the boater where you are. Unfortunately sail boaters and windsurfers don’t announce themselves with the sound of propellers. It is up to you to avoid areas where people practice these sports and always be on the lookout for them.
