Marine Safety Officers

Our Marine Safety Officers aim to keep our water ways safe by ensuring boaters have the correct safety equipment.

They can conduct a vessel safety check by intercepting your boat on the water or when launching. If you don’t have everything in order you may be sent ashore, and may receive a monetary penalty. In minor instances, a formal caution may be issued or general educational advice provided.

Our Marine Safety Officers can answer any questions and provide advice on vessel safety equipment, navigation lights or anything else related to operating your boat safely. Call 1300 183 046.

If you see them out and about, come up and say hi. They are always happy to help.
