Join Tauranga Coastguard

Join up and Support us!

By making a $10 membership payment, (plus we request an optional donation of $90) to Tauranga Volunteer Coastguard you are directly supporting your local Coastguard Unit. You are also covered by every unit in the country if you happen to be out of the Tauranga area. (Any donations will qualify for a personal tax credit.)

We just couldn't do what we do in 'Saving Lives at Sea' without your support.

Despite the fact that all our services are manned by dedicated local volunteers, we couldn't provide the services we do without your financial support. 


What does my membership cover? 

Should the situation arise and you need assistance on the water for you and your boat, in a non-emergency situation, you can be assured that our volunteers will come to your assistance.  This includes recovering you and if possible, your vessel to the nearest port of safety.

As a supporter and member you will receive a membership sticker for your boat, a membership card and an official receipt.

As mentioned above, your donation will qualify for a personal tax credit, and will be recognised with a receipt which will be mailed to you along with your membership card within a week of your donation. 

If you are interested in a lifetime contribution to Tauranga Volunteer Coastguard please call one of our staff members to discuss the option on 07 578 5579.
