Welcome to the summer boating season!

The October long weekend marks the start of the summer boating season around Australia.

We know our boaters along the coastline and enclosed waters can’t wait to get out on the water after a hard year in which we’ve endured bushfires, floods and storms and COVID-19.

To help you stay safe and have an enjoyable summer out there, make sure you tune into Weekend Sunrise on Channel 7 on Saturday, October 3.

Marine Rescue NSW Commissioner Stacey Tannos and our terrific volunteers from Marine Rescue Broken Bay, Middle Harbour and Port Jackson will be providing you with simple advice about safety and preparedness to make sure that you can have a great time on the water and make it safely back to shore over the long, hot days ahead.

The first live cross is at 7.10am and you can see us on the half hour until about 8.40am.

Make sure you tune in before you head out.

Marine Rescue NSW crews are rescue-ready and standing watch. We look forward to seeing you all out on the water this summer.
