Emergency services were called to the River Tay on Wednesday following concerns for a man in the water.
Lifeboat crews rushed to Riverside Drive near Discovery Point shortly after 8pm after the 35-year-old was spotted.
Two teams from Broughty Ferry, a coastguard team, Police Scotland and the Scottish Ambulance Service were all asked to attend as part of the rescue mission.
It is unclear how the man came to be in the water but he was later seen draped in a blanket while being attended to by medical personnel.
It is understood he was taken to Ninewells Hospital for treatment.
A spokesman for Broughty Ferry RNLI said: “The volunteer crews were alerted just after 8pm and the inshore lifeboat was launched at 8.07pm.
“The Elizabeth of Glamis, the larger all-weather lifeboat, followed four minutes later.
“On arrival at scene the Inshore lifeboat crew assisted a male from the water into the boat.
“He was then transferred to the all-weather lifeboat before being transported safely to Broughty Ferry lifeboat station, where he was then passed into the care of a waiting ambulance crew.
“Both lifeboats were then made ready for any further calls.”
A spokesman for Police Scotland said: “We received a call about concerns for a man in the River Tay after 8pm.
“He was traced by the coastguard and this was deemed to be a medical matter.
“Police Scotland left the scene at 9.15pm and no further action was required.”
A spokesman from the coastguard added: “We responded to reports of a person who had entered the water. We were notified just after 8pm.
“Both lifeboats from Broughty Ferry were launched and coastguard teams also attended.
‘‘The man was recovered from the water quickly and left with the police and ambulance service.”
A Scottish Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We received a call from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service at 8.03pm.
“We sent one ambulance to Broughty Ferry Lifeboat Station and conveyed a man to Ninewells Hospital.”
