Thames Coastguard has one vessel available for callout from their base in the Thames township, 'Thames Rescue' is a 6.8m Naiad. The unit has the advantage of being able to trailer their boat by road to get to an incident in a more timely manner, thus reducing the incident time. Their area of operation covers the entire Firth of Thames across to Kawakawa Bay, up to and including the Colville Channel. The Coromandel Coast area includes many coastal islands, marine farms and some popular harbours.
