Increase in whale activity causes reduced vessel speed limit

13 knot limit in effect for mid-Glacier Bay

Posted: September 17, 2013 - 12:01am

The vessel speed limit in mid-Glacier Bay will be 13 knots beginning at 5 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17, Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve acting Superintendent Lisa Etherington announced Monday. The limit will be implemented because there are currently more whales in the area.

Whale waters restrictions remain unchanged in Whidbey Island and Lower Glacier Bay.

All Glacier Bay waters restrictions will expire at 11:59pm on September 30 unless otherwise announced.
