My wife and I will be permanently returning to the Sushine State after a nine year hiatus. What are the current Florida dive flag protocols?
Specifically: 1. What is required and what size is to be shown and from where for beach divining without a surface support vessel? I am already aware that a rigid Alpha flag is required to be shown when a vessel is used for diving support and is outside the demarcation line which divides the area for International rules of the road and Inand rules of the road. 2. Does Florida require a red/white flag also be shown in addition to the alpha flag when operating a vessel with divers down in state waters between the demarcation lines and either 3 miles offshore on the east coast or 9 miles on the Gulf coast?
Thanks in advance !!
