Get Involved

Coastguard volunteers battle the worst conditions to rescue people in danger. Please help by making a donation today.


Coastguard is the charity that rescues over 6,000 New Zealanders each year, and educates over 14,000 people annually about water safety.

Only 12% of our funding comes from the government, so we need your help raising the rest.
