What is the Marine Code?

The Marine Code Group was developed by local operators and other organisations working closely with the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority and the RSPB. These organisations are all concerned about the long-term management of the area and the development of high standards of practice. They recognise that sustainable use must be a key theme in marine recreational activities and education.

Most of the Pembrokeshire Coastline is privately owned, and designated for its landscape and wildlife importance. The Pembrokeshire Marine Code encourages users to show respect and consideration for the marine environment, land owners, wildlife and other users when out exploring the coast and offshore areas of Pembrokeshire. This is achieved through voluntary codes of conduct, agreed access restrictions, education, and the creation and promotion of best practice.
