The Coastguard confirmed that the doctor was lowered down to offer assistance.
Cal Reed, helm of Aberdeen inshore lifeboat, said: “The girls did well to remain calm and remember their safety drills – staying with their boat, using it for buoyancy and to keep them out of the water.
“A full array of rescue assets were quickly on scene, but particularly well done to the crew of the pilot cutter for effecting the rescue so quickly.
“It was a positive outcome for all involved and the lifeboat crew were pleased to be able to assist.”
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Five people were rescued after falling into the water. We were not required to attend, but it has been taken care of by other emergency services.”
