Interested in becoming a volunteer? Join up today!
If you come on board as a member of Marine Rescue NSW, you’ll join more than 3,200 professionally trained volunteers who are committed to saving lives on the water.
Members must be aged 16 years or older.
If you already have some boating or emergency service knowledge, that’s great. If not, our professional training courses are specifically designed to give you the skills and qualifications you’ll need, including first aid, sea survival, a NSW Maritime Boating Licence, Marine Radio Operator’s Certificate of Proficiency or more advanced ratings.
We look forward to welcoming you aboard!

Lodge an Expression of Interest with a unit (or units) to find out more about volunteering with MRNSW and whether your available time and interest areas are a good fit. Each selected unit will respond to you in due course with more information and the next steps.
