A warning from Parks Canada that jumping and diving off of Covehead Bridge is dangerous and not allowed.
The minimum fine for jumping off of the bridge is $175.
Covehead is an active fishing harbour and the channel under the bridge is regularly used by both fishermen and recreational boaters.
There have been a number of near collisions between bridge jumpers and vessels travelling under the bridge.
The water depth, depending on the tides and debris below can also be a hazard.
