Unsafe Skipper, Mission Beach Dive

The skipper of Mission Beach Dive created mayhem in the bay this afternoon (23/7/2016) his irresponsible actions risked life limb and property damage when he entered Brammo Bay, Dunk Island at excessive speed which resulted in the three cruiser boats anchored in the bay rolling violently from the resulting wake. One of the anchored boats was midway through recovering its tender and only good luck prevented any injury.

Professional skippers take care to be aware of the impact they have on others.

Do all of us a favour by sharing this post in the hope in future he will drive with more care for others.
