The Milford Haven Waterway lends itself to a wide variety of water based recreational activities attracting both experienced and novice users, all of whom will interact with each other and commercial traffic. It is important that while undertaking any activity you are aware that what you do afloat may affect the safety and enjoyment of other users.
It is important that you have an understanding of the basic Rules of the Road applicable when on the water as well as Port Byelaws and Activity Zoning. As an Authority we strongly recommended that users should complete a recognized training course before venturing out onto open waters. In addition, given that Pembrokeshire is an area of International importance for conservation and that the waterway forms part of the Pembrokeshire Marine SAC we also encourage you to adopt the Pembrokeshire Marine Code. The Code of Practice exists to help reduce disturbance to all wildlife from water based activities throughout the waterway and surrounding coastal areas. Following the code will also help you to adhere to conservation legislation requirements.
The main recreational activities on the Waterway are:
- Powerered Craft
- Waterskiing and Towed inflatables
- Windsurfing and Kite Surfing
- Canoeing and kayaking
- Wildlife trips
