Marine and Safety Tasmania (MAST) welcomes you to Tasmania. What a great decision you have made!
Tasmania is blessed with fantastic cruising grounds, safe anchorages and excellent fishing both inland and coastal.
To ensure you enjoy your stay in Tasmania with your boat, there are certain issues you should be aware of prior to heading out for a day’s fishing. Tasmanian safety regulations differ to other states with respect to the safety gear needed.
Most importantly, it is mandatory to wear a PFD (Life jacket) at all times when under power on all boats six metres or less and, yes, if trolling in the lakes under power you are required to wear the PFD.
Further information is available on the Cruising Tasmania section of the website.
