Safety & Regulations

It's very important to consider safety before using a kayak. As a paddler of your kayak, you are responsible for your safety and the safety of other people travelling with you.

Below are some useful guides by the Government of South Australia's Boating Safety Unit.

It is also important to check the weather and tide information with the Bureau of Meteorology or call (08) 8366 2600 for further information before you go out and be prepared to cancel your trip if necessary.
