  1. Pretty cool... I assume the water police is similar to the US Coast Guard?

  3. So that's where they are now. I remember when they used to be at the Quay (around Campbell's Cove I think). Used to go and look at the boats (and the blokes) at lunchtime.

  5. I'm sure the water police have a busy life because of the huge area they would have to cover in and around Sydney Harbour - a nice tranquil pic!

  6. You wouldn't suffer with sea sickness if you were in the water police.

  8. Ann, it's not a marina open to the public. It's a marina used solely by the water police.
