The online TasRep Transit Form which follows this page enables you to advise Tas
Maritime Radio of any extended voyages you may take which would warrant us
maintaining details of your trip in Tas Maritime Radio's database in case the unforseen happens
and you require assistance (the "service").
You should advise us if your trip includes:
ocean voyages such as across the Tasman Sea or Bass Strait;
extended coastal voyages;
or if you would like us to track your trip.
You can submit the Transit Form online with your information being
automatically entered into Tas Maritime Radio's TasRep database. If you are unable to submit the
form yourself, ask a friend or family member to do it for you.
While Tas Maritime will accept your booking by phone or radio, it is much easier
for you to do it yourself here: This also helps keep our radio and phones as free as
possible in case a distress situation arises.
