The Charity Saving Lives at Sea.

Main image

Coastguard is a Kiwi institution - a charity, run by volunteers, dedicated to saving lives at sea.

Coastguard volunteers are on call throughout New Zealand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year.

On the water, anything can go wrong in a very short period of time. Our volunteers will spring to the assistance of anyone in trouble - from assisting people whose boat won't start, rescuing a man overboard, helping a kayaker or surfer in trouble, to responding to an emergency flare, locating a drifting vessel or attending to a medical emergency at sea.

Coastguard has a service level agreement that provides us with about 15% of the annual funding we need. The remaining 85% needs to be raised from supportive organisations and individuals who recognise the importance of our lifesaving work.
