Coastguard Hokianga has been active in the area since 1996.
Volunteers, including radio operators are available all day every day to assist anybody in a spot of bother while crossing the often dangerous Hokianga Bar. It is a job they take great pride in and do with fantastic skill and extensive training.
Hokianga also run a junior training unit. These teens from the local area school train alongside the RV crew in a Zodiac donated by MacQuarrie Industries. As they progress in age and abilities, they advance up to the level of RV Crew, so further developing their seafaring skills and knowledge to become valued members of the team.
Training - Fortnightly on Mondays at 1730 at the boat shed between Omapere & Opononi (next to the Bowling Club).
