SMASE Marine Signaling Project
The marine signaling project consists of the installation of buoys along the coast in order to protect coral reefs from possible anchoring damage; protect the manatees that inhabit the area; and provide greater security to visitors in the area who carry out activities such as diving and snorkeling

There are 3 different types of buoys:
Yellow buoys (tube type): to delimit a reduced speed zone (without mooring).
Orange buoys (tube type) to mark dive sites and mooring.
Small orange buoys: to mark close-to-shore snorkeling / diving sites and mooring.

Through this form we request your collaboration to be able to record the incidents that have been reported to us and create awareness about the importance of respecting the signs for the benefit of all.
Please inform FUNDEMAR about broken buoys or anything else.
