Surf Life Saving - Sydney Northern Beaches

Waterways Approval

All water events require an aquatic license from NSW Maritime however there is an exemption when it comes to Surf Life Saving events. SLSSNB notifies NSW Maritime of all surf life saving carnivals at the start of the season so there is no need to apply for an aquatic license for such events.

If an event is deemed to be a special event then an aquatic license must be applied for by the organising club. Price will vary according to the event but all questions regarding aquatic licenses should be directed to NSW Maritime.

The aquatic license can take up to 4 weeks to be approved so please ensure that this is sent with plenty of time in hand.
