Dive safe - a few quick tips for boat drivers - video transcript

Narrator: Anyone driving a powerboat needs to watch out for divers, and divers need to make sure they can be seen. This is the mandated alpha flag which is the international signal to alert passing boat traffic that there are divers under the water. To help ensure skippers see the alpha flag, a high-viz fluoro yellow/green flag to draw attention to the alpha flat is recommended. Remember, when you are travelling 10 knots or more, you need to be at least 60m away from any person in the water. If you see a diver flags, divers in the water or scuba bubbles near your boat immediately switch off your engine and carefully assess the situation.
