We are the charity that saves lives on the water

We are the volunteer based organization that operates more than 30 marine rescue stations on the British Columbia coast and in the B.C. Interior.

From Vancouver’s busy harbour to the remote waters of the North Coast, our volunteer crews are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, ready to respond to marine emergencies.We conduct, on average, 800 marine rescues every year.

You make this possible

Your contributions help support our volunteer training and our keep our equipment in excellent condition.  Donations are also used for prevention programs that save lives on the water before a rescue is needed. Thank you.

Interested in becoming a volunteer? We would love to hear from you.

Contact your local RCMSAR Rescue Station for more information.
