Fremantle Surf Club Patrol Information
Fremantle Surf Life Saving Club’s patrol area extends from Sand Tracks Beach, all the way up to Mosman Dog Beach, a stretch of over 4km. The patrolling season traditionally starts in the beginning of October through to the start of April, and is patrolled on weekends and Public Holidays.
With popular swimming and beach areas at Port Beach and Leighton Beach; Fremantle Surf Club dedicates a patrol team and flagged area at each beach. Roving (by foot), vehicle and sea patrols run simultaneously across the entire 4km coastline (including the dog beach), providing the public with first class lifesaving.
If your names does not appear on the patrol team lists and you have a current bronze medallion or SRC award, then we would love to hear from you and assign you a patrol for the coming season, so please email us at [email protected]
