Last year our volunteers brought home 6,951 boaties.

Please help us save more.

Coastguard volunteers don't just save lives, they save families. For every boatie, fisherman and sailor we save - thousands of relatives, friends and workmates are saved from the anguish of loss.

It costs around $130 a year to keep each of our volunteers trained and ready. Will you give life-saving training to one of our volunteers today?
