We cover a large area in our 12.5 metre Protector, all around the island, up to the Moko Hinau Islands, to the Mercury Islands and the inner gulf as required. The unit has four qualified skippers who are all on 24/7 callout.

Training - We meet every second Monday, generally at Whangaparapara or Tryphena. Check with Chris prior for location and timing of training as it alternates between locations dependent on activity/location of vessel.
