Our Coastguard Rescue Vessel volunteers are out on the water everyday across Aotearoa saving lives at sea and supporting our boating community. Coastguard provides all online and practical training to fit with your schedule and work commitments to help you become operational.
“We’re like a great big family. And when the chips are down, we all come together because I know that when I'm in the water at any time, my crew won't let me down.” Carolyn Tapley – Coastguard Canterbury.
“I get a lot out of volunteering. A lot of the training we go through is a huge benefit to me and sailing and all the other on water stuff, but also just the fact that I get kind of a real good kick when we do a call out and it comes back successfully and bring people back to land again.” Camilla Gibbons – Coastguard Sumner.
