Riverland boat operators are being encouraged to take part in national safe boating week this week.
Some have said the Riverland has one of the highest boat ownership rates per person in South Australia.
Earlier this week, DPTI reminded boat owners of the importance of the week by saying to follow the safety steps required before setting off.
DPTI also say Marine safety officers will be out and about this week and If you see one at your local boat ramp, stop by to say hello and ask any questions about boating safety.
