We save lives on the water.
Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue is a key part of the marine rescue system on the West Coast of Canada. We serve 42 communities, providing round-the-clock rescue coverage on the water. In an average year we respond to more than 700 marine emergencies. These include sinking vessels, injured mariners, lost or disoriented boaters, recreational paddlers caught in currents or bad weather, and shoreline searches for missing hikers and others.
We assist commercial mariners, recreational boaters, and the general public through our search and rescue service and boating safety programs.
