Welcome to your Pittwater & Broken Bay Marine Rescue Organisation.
Our mission is to protect life on the water.
In addition to our primary role of safety on the water, both on Pittwater, Broken Bay and out at sea, Marine Rescue Broken Bay provides education to the boating public, including Boat & PWC licence courses, Marine Radio (Both SROCP and LROCP) courses and Flare usage and demonstration.
Marine Rescue Broken Bay is available Weekends and Public Holidays from Sunrise to Sunset to assist distressed vessels in need of a hand.
Pittwater and Broken Bay is found amongst the backdrop of Sydney's northern beaches, it hosts some of the best recreational boating grounds found anywhere in the world. There are over 103,000 boat licence holders in the Pittwater, Hawkesbury and Brisbane Water region, many of which are sailing, fishing or water-skiing most summer weekends.
Like any harbour or waterway, the weather plays an important part in your ability to enjoy your boat safely. Sea state and wind conditions can change rapidly, in addition to tidal movements..what was a nice day can suddenly become a dangerous situation. When bad weather is combined with mechanical failure - lives are at risk.
Marine Rescue exists to prevent tragedies from occuring on the water. As a rapid response service for boating craft in any kind of trouble, we have the capability to jump-start batteries, tow boats to safe locations, administer first-aid, assist NSW Police in coordinated search and rescue operations and provide water-safety for aquatic events.
However, in order to serve you more efficiently we need to provide for the purchase of new vessels in the near future. To provide these new assets will require significant fund raising from the public. Please support our volunteers when you see them, buy a raffle ticket or a sausage. Donations are always gratefully received.
Fundraising is a major necessity for us. Marine Rescue Broken Bay receives limited Government funding through licence and registration levies. Most of our funding relies on public support and from local clubs and businesses, Radio Club memberships, and from our members fund raising activities.
Please donate to Marine Rescue Broken Bay via this website to help ensure the safety of boat users on Pittwater.
