Naval Vessel Protection Zone (NVPZ) 

Violations of the Naval Vessel Protection Zone are a felony offense punishable by up to six years in prison and/or a fine up to $250,000.

The USCG established the NVPZ regulations as a Homeland Security measure for the safety and security of U.S. naval vessels in U.S. navigable waters.

All vessels are required to operate at minimum speed necessary to maintain course and they should only proceed as directed by the official patrol accompanying the vessel when within 500 yards of any naval vessel. No vessel is permitted within 100 yards of any naval vessel and should only approach within 100 yards with specific approval from the official patrol or commander of the naval vessel. 

Official patrols and naval vessels will be monitoring and can be contacted on VHF-FM channel 16. 

Other past routine actions which could be viewed as suspicious or threatening are: approaching close to cruise line ships or commercial shipping vessels such as oil tankers, and hovering near petroleum facilities, power stations or major bridges. Private boats should give commercial shipping a wide berth and refrain from getting too close to commercial marine facilities and petroleum pipelines.

Telephone suspicious activity to the USCG Auxiliary's Water Watch at 877-24WATCH toll-free.
