Here at SeaLink we operate a Zero Harm policy throughout the company to ensure our passengers, crew, team and customers are all safe. 

For this reason, when travelling with dangerous goods we rely on goods being correctly identified, packaged, handled and documented for safe carriage. All fuels must travel in an approved fuel container.

To ensure your own personal safety, we request that if you are travelling with dangerous goods that you check the dangerous goods list.  If you are still unsure either refer to our Dangerous Goods onboard SeaLink vessels or contact us for further assistance.
