Welcome to Marine Rescue Shoalhaven

 Marine Rescue Shoalhaven is a Unit of Marine Rescue NSW, the only recognised volunteer Marine Rescue organisation in NSW. The base station (callsign: Marine Rescue Shoalhaven) is located in The Pilot House at Crookhaven Heads where volunteers have views over the Crookhaven Bar and Shoalhaven Bight to Gerroa and Black Head. Between sunrise and sunset, the Pilot House volunteers log vessels on and off as they put to and return from sea or a trip along the river.

They monitor Marine Distress frequencies 24 hours a day and co-ordinate Marine Search and Rescue operations. Members wishing to talk to the Watch-keeper or Radio Operator on Duty can do so on 02 4447 4466 between 6.00am and 4.00pm.
