An active lifestyle is an important element of Navy life, this doesn't stop just because you're serving at sea. Enjoy daily group personal training in the onboard fitness facilities, or play group sports like hockey out on the deck. We believe hard work should be rewarded with appropriate down time, and you'll be provided opportunity to relax. Kick back with a cuppa and chat to friends, catch up on emails, you might even join in a friendly video game competition with your mates.
It’s not all life at sea in the Navy. Even when assigned to a ship, you could spend a couple of months at sea, followed by a few months in your home port. It all depends on your job, the ship’s program and the type of ship you’re posted to.
Being stationed on a ship in port doesn’t mean you stay onboard the entire time. You’ll be given ample opportunity to catch up with family and friends or explore the surrounding area. Or you may find yourself in a foreign country where you’re free to immerse yourself in exciting new cultures and communities.
It's important to stay in touch with your loved ones, so at sea you'll have access to Wi-Fi and emails at most times. You can also receive care packages from family and friends that can include anything from home cooked snacks to recorded copies of your favourite TV shows.
Staying active is a key element of life in the Navy. Not only will your base offer you all the facilities and group training sessions you need to keep in top shape, we also make it a part of your daily role so you're paid to train too. Whether you like to hit the gym, play a team sport, or swim laps in the pool — you can choose a workout that suits you.
Navy bases are equipped with excellent social and entertainment facilities. You’ll often find cafés and bars, TV rooms, quiet areas, as well as gyms and pools. You may even be able to invite guests onto Navy bases to enjoy a drink or BBQ with you.
