Reminder – NO WAKE in the Canals!

The Town Code of ordinances in Southern Shores regulates water craft speed in the Town canals as follows:

Sec. 34-23. – Wakes; speed limit.

The owner of any boat using the waterways shall be responsible for ensuring that the boat is operated at such speeds as to leave a low wake to avoid erosion and washing away of the banks, but in no case shall a boat be operated at a speed in excess of five statute miles per hour.
