Default Pensacola Beach Blue Angels Air Show Safety Zone

This is something different for the air show this year. In past years I don't remember the Coast Guard enforcing a Safety Zone in Santa Rosa Sound. Only the area in the Gulf.

This will be a huge no wake zone. It is something that is definitely needed. People attending will need to know this, in order to adjust their departure time, in order to maintain their projected arrival time.
60hertz and OldMan-theSea like this.

. Additionally, vessels seeking to enter Little Sabine Bay for the two hours immediately following the air shows must contact the on-scene captain of the port designated representative via VHF channel 16 for authorization. This safety zone is needed to protect spectator vessels during, and immediately following the air shows. All concerned traffic may contact the Coast Guard on VHF-FM Channel 16 or the captain of the port Mobile at 251-441-5976. For further information mariners may contact Coast Guard Sector Mobile at 251-441-5976.

Can’t wait to see how many jet skiers enter little Sabine without authorization

Initially when I read the bulletin I thought the same thing. However in the 5th paragraph it talks about Santa Rosa Sound being an area for minimum safe speed only zone. Should make for an interesting afternoon.



The safety zone for a portion of the Santa Rosa Sound includes all waters from Deer Point to Sharp Point and all waters within Little Sabine Bay. All vessels in this safety zone must proceed at a minimum safe speed. A no-wake zone approaching the Highway 399 Bob Sikes Bridge will be strictly enforced while the safety zone is in effect.
