Mariners are advised on Friday 8th May 2015, dive contractors Shearwater Marine Services Ltd are undertaking a dive project to inspect piles located at the berthing area on the south side and on the pier head of Wemyss Bay Ferry Terminal.

The dive team will be operating from the pier deck with a safety boat in attendance. Works are programmed to be completed in one day.

At all times dive operation working areas will be appropriately marked using Flag A “Diving Operations” with dive operations being undertaken between scheduled ferry services to ensure there is no disruption to service. The dive team supervisor will liaise with the harbour manager/supervisor and ferry Masters and will monitor VHF channel 16.

All vessels navigating in the vicinity of Wemyss Bay Ferry Terminal are advised to exercise vigilance and pass at minimum safe manoeuvring speed and sufficient distance from the dive site to reduce the risk of damage or injury being caused by the passing vessel’s wash or displacement.

Vessels are also advised, with the exception of scheduled ferry movements, while the Wemyss Bay Ferry Terminal berth is being inspected it will be closed to all vessel access during the time dive operations are on-going
