Furthermore, where appropriate, we utilise dual-ticketed crew, ensuring we relocate your vessel with safe and reliable service, at a cost-effective premium.


Other Watercraft Transport

Queensland tug boat ‘Gulf Explorer’, tows the Quicksilver reef pontoon on its journey from the Great Barrier Reef. A team effort between North Marine occupational divers and our fantastic tug boat crew in Cairns Harbour, Queensland AustraliaNorth Marine are highly experienced transporting other watercraft in addition to vessel relocation services; particularly barge tows, reef pontoon relocations and helicopter landing pad relocations. Specialising in the Great Barrier Reef region, we have installed over 35 reef pontoons, often in areas of dense coral structures.

As a result, we regularly provide pontoon towage and helipad towage for land-based maintenance, impending cyclones etc.

Because North Marine is the mooring specialist, we can take care of every aspect of the tow for your pontoon. This includes disconnect, reconnect and mooring certificates of compliance.

North Marine is an all services marine company, operating Australia-wide, our head offices are based in Cairns Queensland.

We offer vessel relocation services, including harbour evacuation assistance to Far North Queensland vessel owners.

If you may require your vessel to be relocated in the event of a mandatory harbour evacuation order, North Marine can assist.

Please contact us if you need assistance or towage of your vessel. In the event of a marina evacuation, if you direct us to do so, we can assist you to move your vessel safely to your preferred location.

As severe weather is not uncommon in Far North Queensland, marina users are familiar with marina evacuations. During a tropical cyclone weather warning, users of the Cairns Marlin Marina must adhere to the Cairns Regional Harbour Master’s directives.

Extreme Weather Warnings – Red Alert

When the Regional Harbour Master issues a ‘Red Alert’, destructive winds are forecast, and the port of Cairns is closed.

Directions during extreme weather events and emergencies are laid out in the ‘Port of Cairns Extreme Weather Event Contingency Plan’, available from Maritime Safety Queensland (MSQ).
