Our Position: Leave Our No Wake Zone Alone
Our primary concern squarely focuses on safety. For decades, people have embraced the idea that you can enjoy Scenic Bay from a canoe, paddleboat, kayak, rowboat, and other small craft without fear of being run over or swamped by the wake of a boat. Small craft often venture out in calm weather, and are without the means to move out of the way of fast moving boats or hazardous waves. On crowded weekends and holidays, the bay becomes congested and collisions are likely without the safety of maintaining the current wake zone.
