Four teenagers were stranded in Port Phillip Bay after they got caught in strong winds.
They were able to shelter in a hut on Swan Island, which was about 12 hours from where they were last seen.
The other two individuals, who were 18 and 19, were rescued a couple of hours later.
Located about 20 kilometers from Rosebud, Swan Island is known as a military training area.
The Australian Defence Force assisted in the rescue of the four individuals, who got stranded on the island after they set out on two stand-up paddle boards. According to Victoria Police, the group got caught in the strong winds.
According to police, the four got stranded on the island after they couldn’t fight against the strong winds.
They were able to get out of the bay using the tide, but they got stranded on Swan Island at around 2 am.
The teenagers, who were described as disorientated, were found wandering around the island by security personnel.
Acting Superintendent Terry Rowlands of the Swan Island Police said that the four missing teenagers were found safe and well on the other side of the bay.
The teenagers were reportedly very cold when they were rescued. They had drifted across the bay on two large plastic stand-up paddle boards.
Two of the patients were taken to the University Hospital of Greater Geelong after an ambulance arrived at 10 am.
An air ambulance then transported the other three patients to the facility.
The alarm was raised after a passerby spotted the teenagers’ belongings on the beach at around 8 pm on Monday.
