About Marine Rescue NSW
Marine Rescue NSW is an independent not-for-profit emergency services organisation and NSW's official volunteer marine rescue service. Marine Rescue NSW receives financial support from the NSW Government and boating community through a direct Government grant and a levy on recreational boat licences and registration. However, our organisation also continuously relies on our volunteers’ community fundraising efforts, grants, sponsors and donations to support the vital, life-saving service we provide to our community.
