You need to read the actual draft language. (And also remember it's a DRAFT. Anything final - which could be years away - may be different.) Also bear in mind that whoever wrote the original note may have an agenda and has chosen the words that best promote his view.
From the draft (188.8.131.52 - courtesy of Chris Menjou's research): ". . . restrictions on recreational activities on the CCNM would not extend to appropriate water-contact activities in adjacent areas. . . . In summary, snorkeling and scuba diving appear to be the water contact recreational activities that are the most dependent on the waters surrounding the CCNM. These activities would not be affected by on-island prohibitions intended to protect monument resources."
