In an effort to adequately and promptly respond to complaints of Jet Skis operating illegally off of Lewes Beach, DNREC Fish and Wildlife is assisting the City and our residents in these efforts.
All residents are urged to immediately contact DNREC Fish and Wildlife at their emergency dispatch number,
1-800-523-3336 if they observe Jet Ski violations.
DNREC regularly has a boat in the water off of Lewes Beach and can respond to these requests in a timely manner.
The State law is: Except for the waters of Delaware’s Inland Bays contiguous to incorporated areas, on Delaware waters other than the Atlantic Ocean, no person shall operate a personal watercraft at any speed greater than headway speed unless said personal watercraft is at least 100 feet from all wharfs, piers, docks, boat launching areas, pilings, bridge structures or abutments, moored, drifting or anchored vessels, all nonmotorized vessels, and any shoreline, and at least 300 feet from all people in the water; provided however, that the provisions of this subsection shall not apply to the waters of the Nanticoke River.
