In Victoria you do. Other states have other rules.
Charter boats have to inform all their passengers and display a sign that tells them. If fisheries catch you on a charter boat without a licence you and the operator can receive a fine.
There's nothing . . . absolutely nothing . . . half so much worth doing as simply messing around in boats.
