The man was with his wife when he fell from the vessel, which was anchored off Eaglehawk Island off the Dampier Archipelago, at about 6.30pm on Thursday and is believed to have sustained severe head injuries.

Karratha Police acting senior sergeant Paul Brown said the cause of death was not known, but was not being treated as suspicious, and a report would be prepared for the coroner.
