Boat Operating Licence
|Although Boat Operator Licences have been required since 1 February 2003, you will not need a licence to charter one of our boats. Riviera Nautic worked with Marine Safety Victoria to develop a system to ensure you are well trained to handle the boat, and we provide plenty of backup support to overcome the need for you to have a boating licence to charter with us.|
Every guest, regardless of experience level, receives our detailed and friendly boat briefing. This briefing covers all aspects of navigation, safety, boat systems and boat handling. By completing this briefing we can sign you off as complying with the legislation - enabling you to charter the boat without a licence!
In other words, we effectively licence you for the duration of your charter. Each person who will be steering the boat will have needed to be involved in the boat briefing.
