Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue

Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCM-SAR) is a volunteer organization of over 1000 people from many backgrounds who give up a great deal of their own time to train, be trained, and be on standby, in case they are needed to respond to a marine emergency on the water. These volunteers have the use of modern, well-equipped rescue vessels that are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

There are three RCM SAR stations on the Sunshine Coast:

  • Station 14 in Gibsons
  • Station 12 in Halfmoon Bay
  • Station 61 in Pender Harbour

The stations are all equipped with high speed response boats to perform marine rescue, response and emergency transportation.
