Make A Donation

Coastguard is a charity – we simply can’t ‘save lives’ without your support.

Coastguard maintains an infrastructure right around the coast of New Zealand to ensure that we are there when the New Zealand boating public need us. In the Northern region we cover from Thames, across to Kawhia and up the coast to the Far North. We have strategically located rescue vessels, comprehensive marine VHF coverage and hundreds of dedicated volunteers who help ensure boaties remain safe, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Your donation makes a difference – it helps us to save lives!
