National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI)

As a non-profit organisation, the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) is run by rescue teams of unpaid volunteers, and is entirely dependent on donations for funding. Despite these challenges, the NSRI is among the world’s oldest sea rescue organisations and through its years has grown to include over 1 000 highly trained volunteers who help keep South African waters safe.

The NSRI has 31 bases around South Africa’s coast, a fleet of 96 rescue craft, 38 rescue vehicles, 16 quad bikes and 11 tractors, as well as access to a number of helicopters. With these resources, the NSRI answers distress calls from individuals and craft both at sea and on inland waters, with dedication to face almost any weather conditions.
