The East Riding coast and countryside is home to two boat launching sites and has space for a number of activities, including jet skiing, quad biking and power kiting. Please make sure you stay safe and have the landowners permission when doing any activities on private land.
Boat and Jet Ski Launching
East Riding of Yorkshire operate two public boat launches, both run under licence by third parties. There are also a number of private boat launch clubs along the East Riding coast. Launching of any vessel is only permitted at authorised slipways and under strict adherence to the boat users regulations. You must follow the personal watercraft code of conduct, and be respectful of the wildlife and other sea users. Failure to do so can result in withdrawal of permission to launch.
Jet Skis must keep 300 metres seawards from the tide edge except when launching. Failure to adhere to this will result in refusal to launch from either of the Council sites
The inshore area around Flamborough Head and Filey Brigg is protected out to 2km. Within 300m of the cliff-face is Zone One, the rest of the protected area is known as Zone Two.
Power kiting can be done at Bridlington and Fraisthorpe Beach. However, Fraisthorpe Beach is much more popular than Bridlington for power kiting especially during the summer months when Bridlington can become crowded.
When power kiting please be considerate of other beach users and obstacles on the beach, such as tractors and Second World War bunkers! More information and the full code of conduct for power kiting at Fraisthorpe can be found on the Kite Surfing UK website.
Off Road Vehicles
No mechanical-powered vehicles (e.g. quad bikes, dirt bikes, ATV's, pick-ups etc.) are allowed on East Riding's beaches or associated dunes without written permission. Any vehicles without permission that access these areas will be deemed in breach of the law and may be prosecuted.
