Waka Ama Water Safety Basics Booklet

Story Thumb

Waka Ama New Zealand, in association with Water Safety New Zealand, places a strong emphasis on our waka ama whānau being safe in and around the water. Water safety is a fundamental element within waka ama. The purpose of this booklet is to educate our waka ama whānau in six key areas of water safety in relation to waka ama.

These key areas are:

  • Personal Floatation Devices (PFD)
  • The environment
  • Marine Weather Conditions
  • Communication
  • Equipment Required
  • and Maritime Laws

This booklet aims to provide new and existing members with basic water safety information so they feel safe and able when heading out on the water.

A number of hard copies will be sent out in a resource pack for each club.
