Make a Donation today
Finding people at sea isn't easy - without your help its impossible!
Our brave volunteers donate over 307,000 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 those in trouble on the water.
That’s over 3,000 incidents every year, bringing home over 7,000 people who may not be with us today if it wasn’t for our brave Coastguard volunteer crews.
