If you want to avoid being stopped or boarded by the US Coast Guard, NY Harbor Police and other law enforcement vessels, you should stay well outside the following security zones and safety zones:

Temporary No Boating Areas

Observe and avoid all security zones. Avoid commercial port operation areas, especially those that involve military, cruise-line or petroleum facilities. Violators will be perceived as a threat, and will face a quick, determined and severe response.


Keep your distance from all military, cruise-line, or commercial shipping! Do not approach within 100-yards, and slow to minimum speed within 500-yards of any U.S. naval vessel.  Violators face 6 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, not to mention a quick and severe response.


Keep a sharp eye out for anything that looks peculiar or out of the ordinary. Report all activities that seem suspicious to the local authorities, the Coast Guard and the port or marina security: 

Immediate danger to life or property:              911    VHF 16

            National Response center:                   800-424-8802

            NYPD Terrorism Hotline:                   888-692-7233 (888-NYC-SAFE)

            NJ Maritime Security Initiative:          866-472- 3765  ( 866-4SAFENJ)   or    

 

Do not approach or challenge those acting in a suspicious manner.  Do not stop or anchor beneath bridges or in the channel. If you do, then expect to be boarded by law enforcement officials.
