More and more people every year are enjoying boating on some of Australia's most spectacular waterways, right here in NSW.

This increasing traffic on our waterways increases the risk of emergencies and other incidents and makes it more important than ever for Marine Rescue NSW to remain a strong, well-resourced emergency service standing ready to help save lives on the water.

Marine Rescue NSW volunteers are motivated to give their time, energy and service to their local communities not for financial reward but for the satisfaction of helping others in need. Every day, these dedicated men and women are out on the water, saving lives and providing advice and assistance to boaters who run into trouble.

Marine Rescue NSW receives financial support from the NSW Government and from members of the boating community, who, in recognition of the services we provide them, contribute to Marine Rescue NSW through an annual levy on their boat licence and registration fees.

This welcome support provides about half our budget but we depend on our volunteers' committed community fundraising efforts, government and community grants and generous donors and sponsors for the remainder.

How can you help?

With your help, we can save even more lives on the water and keep watch for generations to come.

Your generous donation will support our vital emergency operations and help provide rescue vessels and lifesaving equipment, such as automatic defibrillators.

Please enter your details, the amount you wish to donate,
