What to do in an emergency
Most emergencies on the water can be avoided by good seamanship. However, they can happen on even the best maintained vessels so you need to be equipped to handle them.
Always call triple zero (000) if you are involved in or witness an emergency.
If an incident has occurred but you are not in immediate danger, report it to Victoria Police on 1800 135 729.
