The second season of the Australian drama Sea Patrol premiered on the Nine Network on 31 March 2008 and aired on Monday nights at 8:30 pm. The thirteen-episode season ended on 23 June 2008.
Bombers short temper questions her career after she tries to push Spider over the side of a ship during a training exercise after he taunts and mocks her, causing Buffer to consider having her transferred off the ship. Hammersley rescues 2 men who claim their boat was stolen. Tracking the course of the stolen boat, Hammersley encounters the island home of Ray Walsman and his daughter Carly. The crew eventually find the boat adrift with a dead man on board, and are unable to ascertain how he died.
Meanwhile Charge is due to be awarded a medal for bravery after being stabbed, but is having trouble coming to terms with it secretly. Swain soon learns that Charge never went to see a shrink to deal with any post-incident trauma, and does his best to help Charge come to terms with the attack. Hammersley gets an emergency call from Ray Walsman: Carly has collapsed from an infection due to a heart condition and needs to be taken to hospital on the mainland, leaving Buffer, Bomber and Spider on board the boat with the body. As the ship heads for home, Swain realises Carly seems to be medically fine, and when confronted she admits she faked her condition to spend time with other people and a night on the mainland. When the 2 men rescued try to swim away from the ship, they soon admit they and the dead man are all smuggling eastern brown snakes, as Bomber, Spider and Buffer find their lives when the snakes get loose. With her knowledge of snakes, Bomber is able to save the three of them and Buffer tells her that as long as he sees more of the cool headed version of her, Bomber has still got a future in the Navy.
Guest actors: Anthony Standish, Robert Griffiths.
