Boating, water skiing and jet-skiing are such a fun way to enjoy your summer holidays on the Cooloola Coast.
However, please follow the Go Slow rules and reduce your speed to no more than 6 knots if you are within 60m of people in the water, anchored or moored boats, structures, boat ramps, jetties or pontoons, the boundary of a bathing reserve (check with your local council for locations) and the shore.
‘Go slow for those below’ is a legal requirement in Go Slow designated areas. High boat speeds can cause serious injury or kill marine wildlife and we also want to protect our swimmers and surfers.
The whole area from the the Leisha track on the Double Island Point side around to Teewah is a Go Slow area and the aim is to protect turtles and dugong in critical feeding and resting areas.
Please ensure you know the rules before jet-skiing and boating over the holidays.
So please Go Slow for those below – and leave only bubbles, take only photos.
