Coastguard Newsletters

Coastguard exists to keep people safe on the coastal waters and lakes of New Zealand.

In the past year our 2,300 professional volunteers brought over 7,000 people home safely to their loved ones. That’s an average of 19 people rescued by Coastguard each and every day.

There are always wonderful stories to tell of the people saved and lives changed.
