Which lifejacket do you need?

South Australian lifejacket laws are in play to help keep you and your loved ones safe when enjoying our states’ waterways.

The level of lifejacket you need, and when you must wear it, depends on your vessel, age, location and the conditions.

If lifejacket laws aren’t your strong suit – you’re in luck! – we have developed a quick online tool to help you play your cards right with the correct lifejacket and keep everyone safe on the water.

Just answer some quick questions to know which lifejacket you need before you go.

ANZSBEG (Australia New Zealand Safe Boating Education Group) have a handy lifejacket website to help boaters find out where to service and register their lifejacket to receive servicing reminders. You can register your lifejacket or find a store or service centre near you here.
