Yes, AFAIK, harrasing the creatures in any way, including prompting them to move off the said resting area, is a violation of federal law.

Now, preventing them from coming aboard in the first place by putting up barriers is probably legal, provided the barriers deter but do not injure the big beasties.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
