The vessel was located with Marine Rescue Ulladulla arriving on the scene, and confirming all passengers on board had been accounted for.

Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service transferred the passengers from the rocks back to the marina, where they were treated by NSW Ambulance.

While this group’s fishing trip didn’t go to plan, their safety plan ensured help arrived when they needed it.
