Water scooters and jet skis no longer welcome in Haarlem waters

Water scooters and jet skis are no longer allowed in Haarlem’s waters. This was decided by the Municipal Executive after reports of nuisance.

These vessels fall under the category of fast motorboats and are made to go fast. There is no water in Haarlem where this is allowed.

Water scooters and jet skis often sail too fast, cause noise pollution, unwanted waves and are a danger on the water where people also surf and row. Enforcement officers can intervene sooner thanks to the ban.

Once adopted, the traffic order will be published on www.officielebekendmakingen.nl. The ban will take effect one day after publication.
