The people on board a leaking boat are back on dry land after the vessel started taking on water.

The crew raised the alarm after 9am Wednesday.

It was the 6th boating-related mission from the Bundaberg-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter in three weeks.

The crew of a nearby yacht was escorting and watching over the leaking vessel, as those aboard were bailing out water.

Once it was determined the boat wasn't at risk of sinking the local Volunteer Marine Rescue lead the vessel back to the shore.

It is unknown what caused the leak.
