Nebraska Dive Flags

Rules for NE divers and boaters

On August 24, 2011, Julie from drew our attention to the following:


The diver’s flag must be displayed in Nebraska whenever diving or underwater-powered spear fishing to give fair warning to boaters of a diver in the area.

Scuba divers are reminded to display the diver’s flag and stay within 150 feet of their flag. Divers may not dive within 200 feet of the outer limits of any designated swimming area, boat mooring, docking, or launching area.
Boaters must maintain a distance of 150 feet from a diver’s flag, except law enforcement boats, rescue boats and boats engaged in the diving operations.

Happy Diving,
