Notices to Mariners

Although it does not represent the core work of D&S IFCA, we have created a website page devoted to Notices to Mariners or similar information. The content presented on the page relates to information that is relevant to D&S IFCA’s District and represents information that we are aware of. It is not a complete list of all Notices to Mariners that may apply, and you are advised to contact your local Harbour Authority for more detail on issues that may be relevant to your area.

The Notice to Mariners page can be found by using the drop-down menu located on the About Us, General Information & Notices tab on the home page.
