Two people were caught out with fuel troubles in waters north of Bundaberg on Tuesday afternoon.

Volunteer Marine Rescue at Round Hill received the call around 2pm that a 36ft vessel with 2 people on board was in need of assistance.

Four crew were sent out to the spot around 12 nautical miles south of Round Hill.

VMR Round Hill said "conditions weren't too impressive at the time" so estimated time of arrival to the pair was approximately three and a half hours later, at 5:30pm.
