Make a Donation today
Finding people at sea isn't easy - without your help its impossible!
Our brave volunteers donate over 350,000 hours every year to keeping New Zealanders safe on the water. Help them out by making a donation today.
On an average day in New Zealand Coastguard sends out 10 rescue crews to assist someone who is in some degree of trouble on the water.
That’s over 3500 incidents every year, involving over 5600 people who may not be with us today if it wasn’t for our brave Coastguard volunteer crews.
