Why wear a lifejacket?

Lifejackets save lives. It’s that simple.

Splash. One minute you were in the boat, the next you’re overboard. Maybe it was a rogue wave that capsized your boat, maybe it was a misstep. It doesn’t matter. If you’re not wearing a lifejacket, it’s already too late. 

When accidents happen, there’s rarely time to put a lifejacket on. Add into the mix swell, shock, fatigue and treading water until rescue arrives—and the benefits of wearing a lifejacket become clear.  With the range of lifejackets on the market you can be comfortable and safe on the water. We encourage you to think about the lifejacket you need for your operations, then find a style that suits you.   

 There are legal requirements in Australia for lifejacket wear and maintenance. You can find out more about these here.
