Our volunteer rescue crews provide the primary maritime search and rescue service in New Zealand. Last year we brought over 6,951 people home safely after an emergency on the water. We are able to do this by being organised, trained and equipped 24/7. In an ideal world, vessels would not encounter difficulties at sea, but all activities involve risk and amongst other things, boating is influenced by unpredictable marine weather and constantly changing sea conditions. Nevertheless, we believe that educating the boating public on how to stay safe on the water is of vital importance in keeping New Zealanders safe. For many years we have been offering popular boating courses through our subsidiary, Coastguard Boating Education. These are accessible to all; and we are proud to draw on years of experience to provide practical advice and guidance for safe boating.
