A MAN has died in a boating accident near Broughton Island on Saturday.

Police will prepare a report for the coroner after two men travelling in a boat about 9.50am capsized.

While one man was able to swim to a nearby rocky shore and was rescued by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service uninjured, the other man died.

Port Stephens Marine Rescue vessels performing training exercises arrived about 18 minutes after the capsize was spotted in Esmeralda Cove, about 10 nautical miles from the mainland.
