Voluntary Vessel Speed Reduction Zone In Effect NOAA recommends that vessels > 300 gross registered tons transiting the zone do so at speeds of 10 knots or less

Explore the Whale Safe Tool

Whale Safe is a tool that displays both visual and acoustic whale detections in the Santa Barbara Channel. It also includes a blue whale habitat model that predicts the likelihood of blue whale presence.

The tool ranks vessels and shipping companies according to their rates of cooperation with NOAA’s voluntary speed restrictions in the Santa Barbara Channel.

The companies with highest and lowest rates of adoption during the 2020 VSR season are shown below.
