Restricted Maritime Traffic around Thames Beluga

To protect the beluga whale that is currently in the Thames off Gravesend, the Port of London Authority has imposed a restricted navigation order.

A restriction to non-essential operations is now in force south  of the authorised navigations channel from Denton Wharf to Shornmead Light and any authorised vessels are required to keep a close lookout at all time, keep speed to a minimum and maintain a minimum distance of 100 metres from the whale.

 

Pleasure craft of all types are required to stay out of the restricted area. A copy of the restriction order can be viewed and saved by clicking here.
