Passing is permitted.

They may have the right of way if they must maintain steerage speed and that is faster than you are going... not sure...

I recently transited on a Saturday... not a commercial vessel to be seen. No shortage of jet skis, cigarette boats, and cruisers. Maybe the professionals avoid the place on a weekend?

FWIW, it's much more beautiful and scenic than I would have imagined.
