Coast Watch Radio & Marine Rescue Squad

We are a volunteer Marine Search and Rescue (MSAR) organisation.  Our aim is to offer assistance to people who run into difficulties while out on the water and return them safely to shore.

We cover an area that extends from Point Lonsdale, along the coast to Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads then as far west as Torquay, and up to 30 nautical miles (55 kilometres) out to sea. These locations are popular with professional and recreational fishermen, divers, surfers and other water users, and include the Barwon River and the notorious bar crossing at its mouth.  

Calls for assistance can come from many sources and our services are always available.
