Surf life savers at beaches across the state paused for two minutes silence on Monday to honour the lives of Andy and Ross Powell, who lost their lives in the line of duty on Sunday.
It came as Warrnambool Surf Life Saving Club members went to Port Campbell to offer support to their fellow volunteers.
Club captain Justin Houlihan said the club had approached Port Campbell and said they were happy to stand in solidarity with them and finish off the final day of patrols.
"They could have closed the beach, but it's a good symbol of clubs helping Port Campbell," Mr Houlihan said.
"It's the least we can do to support the club.
"We have about six senior members helping out.
"Surf life saving is one big fraternity.
"It's not just about us doing their patrol, it's about support and solidarity for surf life saving."
Club member and Warrnambool City councillor David Owen said it was a shocking tragedy.
"Our surf live saving community is in shock having lost two of our own," he said.
"A crew of locals will go down and patrol as a sign of solidarity. It's just awful. We're close to our immediate clubs.
"It's like any emergency service tragedy - when someone is lost in the field it's felt right across the community. My heart goes out to the family, the club and friends. It's a terrible tragedy."
Life Saving Victoria president Paul James encouraged patrolling members across Victoria to share a minute's silence at 12.30pm on Monday to honour the lives of Andy and Ross, and to send thoughts to Phil Younis, who is still recovering in hospital after the tragic incident.
"It's the last day of a very busy summer season on our beaches and I send you all a heartfelt thank you for the service you have given to your communities," he said.
"Our lifesavers and lifeguards performed 523 rescues since December 1, 2018, as well as 2950 first aid applications and 132,813 preventive actions.
"Thank you for your dedication and bravery."
He encouraged fellow lifesavers "to face the water and reflect in silence on the achievements your patrols have shared over the season and as a mark of respect to the highly-regarded lifesavers who sadly lost their lives at sea this Easter".
