Illinois Dive Flags

Rules for IL divers and boaters

According to research done by Tom Holtey of Top Kayaker:

For Divers in Illinois

12 x 15 Diver Down Flag (Alpha Flag is alternative). Display flag at a height above the water so as to be clearly apparent at a distance of 100 yards. Divers shall not rise to the surface outside of a radius of 50 from such flag. Federal regulations may apply to Great Lakes and/or international waters.



For Boaters in Illinois

No watercraft shall be operated within 150 of a diving flag except for watercraft directly associated with that diving activity.



Happy Diving,
Chris
