The recreational use of SUAVs (small unmanned aerial vehicles) or drones as they are more commonly known, is not permitted on or over Harbour controlled areas at the ports of St Peter Port or St Sampsons. Due to current recommended flying restrictions for SUAV's this also extends to the seafront areas bordering both ports.
Commercial pilots who satisfy DCA criteria and have appropriate licences and insurances will be considered. Event organisers or drone pilots on behalf of the event should submit an application as part of the event.
If you would like to apply for permission to use and operate an unmanned aerial vehicle or system (Drone) within Guernsey Harbours Estate, you must complete and sign the application form below and also send the following documentation to Guernsey.Harbour@gov.gg (this process can take up to 4 weeks):
- DCA Certification
- Proof of ATC approval
- Public Liability Insurance Policy
- Map of proposed flight path
