Know before you go! Get familiar with the New Zealand Boating Safety Code:
Wear them. Boats, especially those under 6m in length, can sink very quickly. Wearing a life jacket increases your survival time in the water.
The skipper is responsible for the safety of everyone on board and for the safe operation of the boat. Stay within the limits of your vessel and your experience.
Take two separate waterproof ways of communicating so we can help you if you get into difficulties.
New Zealand’s weather can be highly unpredictable. Check the local marine weather forecast before you go and expect both weather and sea state changes.
Safe boating and alcohol do not mix. Things can change quickly on the water. You need to stay alert and aware.
