Free Assists

Having a problem out on the water can be a hassle, but with a Coastguard Membership you've got peace of mind every time you hit the water knowing we've got your back!

Should you run into trouble and require non-urgent assistance, such as help dealing with a mechanical break-down, flat battery, passenger illness or similar, your Coastguard Membership entitles you to assistance without further charge. One of our rescue vessels, crewed with professionally trained volunteers, will arrive and endeavour to you get you safely back to your home port.

No matter where you do your boating in New Zealand, know you're covered with your Coastguard Membership!
