Free advice on-board consultation service

‘Advice On-board’ is a free consultation service that offers safety advice to all those going to sea in pleasure craft, including personal watercraft (PWCs) and Jet Skis.

It is an informal one to one chat with one of our trained Coastguard or Marine Leisure Centre staff about the type of waterborne activity you participate in and the benefits of appropriate safety equipment, as well as offering advice relating to general safety. The advice will also include planning for different activities, how to perform routine checks and inspections on some of your life saving equipment, as well as recommendations for equipment replacement, upgrade or servicing.

In 2021, Jersey Coastguard, in partnership with Ports of Jersey, Jacksons Yacht Services, South Pier Marine and Normans Auto Marine are able to offer a discount of up to 20% on safety related equipment, recommended during an Advice On-board consultation, subject to the terms and conditions listed below.

To receive further information on the scheme, or to book an Advice On-board appointment, contact us by emailing or calling +44 (0) 1534 447705.
