Which lifejacket do you need?

Know which lifejacket you need before you go.

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 (type and length), your age, where you are operating 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.
