      I believe they can only close it to the tour operators not private vessels.

      Also only the company that was involved has been stopped.

        We were there last year and since the commercial operation has changed hands they were dominating the area and private vessels were essentially being muscled out. Planes were landing all over the bay so anchoring was difficult outside. We passed through the falls at slack water and anchored in the inner bay only to have one of their tourist ribs nose up to us and tell us we were illegally anchored and must exit even with the tide beginning to run. Apparently anchoring in the inner bay is now no longer permitted.  Mark
