A PHC licence is required to operate commercially on the estuary.
Whether it be Stand Up Paddle-boarding (SUP) tuition or a high speed trip around the bay, where a business is operating for hire or reward, an operator must first obtain permission from the Padstow Harbour Commissioners before operations may commence.
Failure to do so may result in prosecution and insurances will be nullified.
If you are thinking of starting a marine business on the estuary, a proposal will need to be submitted to the Commissioners detailing the proposed operation, area of intended use, intended vessels, associated risk assessments and any other important factors that will need taking into consideration.
Submissions can be by email, letter or in person at any PHC monthly meeting.
