Introduction to Port of Victoria traffic scheme

The Port of Victoria is home to many activities including international ferry services, commercial tugs and barges, fishing fleets, harbour ferries and water taxis, whale watching operations, seaplanes and numerous power driven and non-power driven recreational craft such as kayaks and sculls.

There are also numerous “Special Events” that have an impact on port traffic and general operations.

Aviation and marine traffic in the Port of Victoria has increased over the past few years and your cooperation is needed to ensure effective operations and safety in the port. The following rules, special procedures and restrictions have been developed jointly by port users and regulatory authorities and apply to all vessels and seaplanes operating in the Port of Victoria.
