Ride the Wind Responsibly: Kite and Windsurfing Rules & Regulations

Embrace the thrill of wind and water, while honoring the precious marine environment. Navigate the waves with these rules to ensure a harmonious experience for all.

    • Kitesurfing: Only allowed at the entry and exit zone of Atlantis within the Marine Park.
    • Windsurfing: Exclusively at Lac Bay within the Marine Park.
  • Open Waters Access:
    • Beyond the Marine Park: Enjoy kite and windsurfing in the deep blue, maintaining a respectful 75m distance from shore.
    • Foiling: Surfing with a foil is allowed in the dark blue waters at least 75m from shore. Windsurfing with a foil is currently condoned in Lac as it is not zoned in yet.
