Wyoming Dive Flags

Rules for WY divers and boaters

If you have any additional Wyoming scuba diving links or dive flag information to recommend, let me know.



For Divers in Wyoming

Chapter 22 of Wyoming's Watercraft Regulations state:

[D]ivers or persons snorkeling shall place a diver's down flag(s) upon the water in the immediate area of their activity.

The diver's down flag(s) shall be displayed only when diving or snorkeling is in progress and shall be displayed so as not to impede normal watercraft traffic.



For Boaters in Wyoming

Wyoming Watercraft Regulations regarding dive flags are summarized for boaters like this:

All watercraft operators should be aware that there are two flags used to indicate the presence of a person engaged in diving in the immediate area. The official flag, Alpha, which is blue and white, is internationally recognized for all diving operations. The second flag, is the red flag with a white diagonal stripe. No person shall operate or permit the operation of any motor powered watercraft on the waters of the state of Wyoming within 50 feet of the display of the above described "diver down" flag. All motor powered watercraft approaching such flags shall do so at a no wake speed.



Happy Diving,
