Protecting Whales in Puget Sound: Quiet Sound's Voluntary Ship Slowdown Program

Starting as early as October 1, 2023, the Quiet Sound Program launches its annual voluntary ship slowdown in Admiralty Inlet and North Puget Sound, lasting until January 12, 2024. Vessels are asked to reduce speed (15.5 knots for vehicle carriers/ cruise ships/ container vessels and 11.0 knots for bulkers/ tankers) and turn off ultrasonic hull antifouling systems to protect endangered Southern Resident killer whales. Last year, this effort reduced underwater noise by 45% in this critical habitat.
