  • Boat sinks off Evans Head after hitting whale
  • October 03, 2016

Marine Rescue have confirmed that a boat split in half and rapidly sank after hitting a whale off Evans Head on Sunday morning (October 2).

Marine Rescue NSW Northern Rivers regional controller Stephen Reading said the incident happened around 6am Sunday morning.

He said passengers of the boat, believed to be a fishing vessel, were wearing lifejackets and were quickly picked up by another fisherman nearby.

The incident has prompted warnings for fishers and pleasure-boat users to log their trips with Marine Rescue NSW. This can now be more easily done with the advent of the Marine Rescue phone app.
