MarineRescue App


The MarineRescue App makes it easier than ever
for boaters to stay safe on NSW waters. It’s the
only App that connects you directly to Marine
Rescue NSW. 

In just a few minutes, you can Log On with Marine 
Rescue NSW and be on your way, knowing 3,000
professionally trained and equipped search and
rescue experts are watching out for you. 

When you Log On with us, we know where you’re 
heading and when you’re due to return, so we can 
quickly start a search if you’re not safely back when 
expected. 

The MarineRescue App, developed specifically for
NSW waters and conditions, is free to download and
use. It is suitable for both Apple and Android mobile
devices.

The App also offers you an extra live safety tracking
option, automatically updating your position every
30 minutes so we can track your journey.

Every minute counts in an emergency on the water
so knowing where to start searching for you if you’re
missing can mean the difference between life and death.

The App also provides a range of valuable safety
tools and information that could help save lives in
an emergency:

  • Local tide, weather and sea conditions 
  • Your latitude/longitude position coordinates 

  • Boat ramp locations and popular fishing spots

  • A safety checklist for before you head out 

  • Emergency call procedures

  • Information on Marine Rescue NSW

The App is a great addition to your marine radio and 
EPIRB in your safety toolkit. But remember, it doesn’t
replace these items and you should always ensure you
are carrying all required equipment to immediately
summon help in an emergency.
