Be prepared

No matter how much experience you have, it’s always a good idea for everyone to review boating safety rules and practices before leaving the pontoon. Always be prepared. You don’t want to ruin a great day out due to poor planning.

Useful sources of safety information include: 

Lifejackets

Lifejackets on!

Your lifejacket will only save your life if you’re wearing it. We suggest you put your life jacket on as soon as you arrive in the marina. Make sure you check it each time you put it on, paying special attention to the gas cylinder and inflation valve.
