Pirate Patrol


The crew of Australian warship HMAS Toowoomba, are on patrol in the troubled waters of the Persian Gulf.

In a world first, Pirate Patrol, follows the 193 men and women of the Royal Australian Navy Warship as they join a US led task force to combat smuggling and piracy.

As the drama unfolds, we discover how the men and women adapt to the daily pressures of life on active service, knowing that one mistake out here could mean not just their lives but those they’ve sworn to protect.
What lies ahead is six tough months on a high stakes mission in this highly volatile part of the world.

Facing danger…
And pushed to their limits.
It’s all in a day’s work for the Pirate Patrol.
