At 10.57am the Irish Coast Guard tasked the lifeboats to investigate a report of a small motor boat with two people drifting off the beach.
A member of the public had raised the alarm, as they believed the occupants might be in need of assistance.
As the lifeboats were proceeding to the small boat, they were stood down by the coastguard after it was ascertained that the two people were fine and able to return to shore under their own power.
The lifeboats then resumed exercise in the Wicklow bay area.
Speaking after the incident, Wicklow RNLI volunteer lifeboat press officer Tommy Dover said: "This was volunteer crew member Alan Goucher’s first call-out as a helm in charge of the inshore lifeboat and Connie O'Gara’s first call-out on the all-weather lifeboat as a mechanic."
