Coastguard Houhora is based in Pukenui on the Houhora Harbour.

We joined the Coastguard family becoming an official Coastguard unit in September 2012. We have a committed group of volunteers which form our committee and crew and who all enthusiastically participate in training and fundraising events.

As we are a fledgling unit we would welcome any support that you may be able to give us whether through donation of money or your time, or even equipment. If you think you can help, please get in touch with us.


Meet Us - we meet regularly at Pukenui School and also occasionally use the Houhora Game Fishing Club as a venue for events.
