Aquatic use changes to improve safety at Esperance and Hopetoun

Speed restrictions, new swimming prohibited areas and changes to water ski areas have been implemented at Esperance and Hopetoun after a comprehensive review of aquatic use.

Speed restrictions, new swimming prohibited areas and changes to water ski areas have been implemented at Esperance and Hopetoun after a comprehensive review of aquatic use.

Department of Transport (DoT) Regional Transport Officer Garry Wilson said the new arrangements were designed to deliver a safer marine environment for all waterway users.

The changes are detailed in DoT’s new boating guide for Esperance and include:

  • The introduction of a 8 knot speed limit extending 200 metres from shore between Port Beach and the southern groyne at Bandy Creek Boat Harbour in Esperance Bay to provide for safer interaction between various users of the area;
  • Extension of the take-off and landing area as well as lifting the ban on personal water craft (PWC) free-styling at the water ski area in Esperance Bay to increase access;
  • A new swimming prohibited area within Esperance Bay Yacht Club to address concerns from skippers and remove the risk of an incident;
  • A closed to motorised vessels area at the protected beach and a new swimming prohibited area at Bandy Creek Boat Harbour and channel to provide separation of incompatible activities;
  • New navigation aids around Cook Rock, Wylie Head and at Town boat ramp to assist safe vessel movement; and,
  • At Hopetoun the official gazettal of a water ski area to allow the introduction of safety guidelines for users.

Mr Wilson said the eight month Esperance Aquatic Use Review had been undertaken in consultation with key stakeholders, including the Esperance Port which has strict exclusion zones in place for recreational craft.

“The changes address a number of marine safety issues and clearly define boundaries for aquatic activity reducing conflict and confusion," Mr Wilson said.

In addition to the new boating guide, new signage would be installed and local officers would conduct on-water patrols as part of the education campaign reinforcing the new arrangements.

The Marine Safety Education Trailer will also be in the region visiting local boat ramps and the Esperance Show on October 17 and 18, 2014.
