Mooring Buoys Installed at South Penghu Marine National Park to Protect Coral Reefs

Marine National Park Headquarters opens up certain areas for visitors to partake in snorkeling and diving activities from April to September every year, when the ocean is relatively calmer. To prevent the beautiful coral reefs from getting damaged by the anchors of stopping boats, the Headquarters installed three mooring buoys for the recreational ocean zones and general controlled ocean zones of Dongjiyu and Dongyupingyu. A total of 6 boat mooring spots are provided for visitors to use when heading out with boats to dive.

At present, the latitudes and longitudes of the mooring buoys at Dongjiyu are: Location one - N23°14.985' E119°40.487’; location two - N23°15.020' E119°40.461’; location three - N23°15.025' E119°40.497’. At Dongyupingyu: Location one - N23°15.531' E119°30.678’; location two - N23°15.604' E119°30.736’; location three - N23°15.623' E119°30.654’. Boat drafts vary across different types, and the water depth of each location can vary from 3 to 6 meters. Considering these, small- and medium-sized boats are encouraged to use the buoys in the ocean. Boat drivers are asked to pay attention to water depths to avoid crashing into coral reefs. It's recommended that large boats drop anchors at the outer surrounding sand areas. Maintaining marine facilities isn't easy; we need everyone to use them with care.
