Rescue Stations

We have Rescue Stations in 33 communities on the West Coast and in the Interior.

Our locations range from large urban centres like North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Victoria and Nanaimo, to small coastal communities like Port Alice and Lax Kw’alaams.Each station has at least one dedicated search and rescue vessel and a local crew on call around the clock, 365 days a year.

Locations are chosen based on the marine safety needs of the area, the proximity of other search and rescue resources, and the capacity of the community to support a station.

We also have four Stations that do not have rescue vessels and are dedicated solely to promoting boating safety.
