Coast Guard sets new security zone
The U.S. Coast Guard is implementing a 100-yard security zone to include passenger vessels operating in the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Puget Sound. This includes, but is not limited to, the Washington state ferries.
11 security zones prohibited boaters from approaching within
100 yards of U.S. military vessels and tankers; and operate
at minimum speeds within 500 yards. The coast guard is now
also imposing security zones in the vicinity of all passenger
vessels more than 100 feet in length.
