Code of Conduct

Ceredigion Code of Conduct

The Ceredigion Recreational Boat Users’ Code of Conduct introduced in 1992 continues to be the main tool for managing boating activity within the SAC. The 2001 Management Scheme identified the need to provide interpretation and education that would generate interest, appreciation and a commitment to conserve the features of the SAC. The Code has been distributed to all mooring holders and visitors launching at harbours and information panels about the code and the SAC have been sited at launching sites.


In general keep a good look out and keep your distance. Do not approach marine mammals, let them come to you.

Headlands and reefs such as Mwnt, Aberporth, Ynys Lochtyn, New Quay and Sarn Cynfelyn are very important feeding areas for dolphins and porpoises; take extra care to travel slowly and not to disturb animals in these areas.

Please operate all boats with care and attention for the safety of occupants and respect
for all other sea users.

Do not discard litter or fishing tackle at sea.
