Boating in Bribie Island

Boating around Bribie is very popular. And why should it be? Bribie has excellent boat ramps, excellent access to the Pumicestone Passage, and a no-bar access to Moreton Bay.

Because of the popularity of Bribie Island and the number of boats using the Bribie waterways, you should keep alert to the Notices to Mariners for this area. There are a number of boating collisions with navigational markers (I know, amazing isn't it).

Occasionally,  vessels anchored or moored in Pumicestone Passage sink or drift. You need to be alert to sunken vessels if you are boating in around Bribie.

That makes being aware of Notices to Mariners alerts for Bribie Island more important.
