National Safe Boating Week returns for its second year on Friday 2 October.

This year’s focus areas are:

  • Service it: Be a responsible boat owner, maintain your boat and your equipment
  • Pack it: Be prepared before heading out onto the water
  • Wear it: If you end up in the water, you are much more likely to survive if you are wearing a lifejacket

Get involved

We’ll be sharing tips, resources and videos to help Victorian boaters get onboard.

Follow Maritime Safety Victoria on Facebook and share our #safeboating messages throughout the week.

Stakeholders can email education@transportsafety.vic.gov.au to request additional assets.

Thanks for your support!

Please visit the Better Boating Victoria website for current COVID-19 boating restrictions in your area.
