Port of Townsville Limited provides pilotage services at the Port of Townsville and Port of Lucinda (and Abbot Point under separate contract to the Department of Transport and Main Roads).

The ports of Townsville, Abbot Point, and Lucinda are compulsory pilotage areas; meaning that ships that are 50 metres in length or more that sail within the pilotage areas must either carry a licensed marine pilot or be under the command of a Master who holds a pilotage exemption certificate for the area.

Maritime Safety Queensland (MSQ) may grant a master an exemption from pilotage within a declared Queensland pilotage area. Please contact the MSQ Townsville office for more information.
