Just as you were heading to work on Wednesday 16th July, a boat got stuck on the Taieri Mouth bar. The Surf Life Saving Otago SAR squad responded to assist the stranded man and his 2 dogs to shore. Great job by all involved.
Check out the article in the Otago Daily Times. More photos to come.
Imagine being the subject of a real life marine rescue operation. Dunedin Marine Search and Rescue has a once in a lifetime opportunity for you to be involved in one of our helicopter water rescue training sessions. The lucky winner of the auction will be offered the chance to take part and be winched from the ocean in a mock rescue situation.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity - unless you are unfortunate enough to require our services!
The winner will also be the proud sponsor of one our rescue swimmer wetsuits. Your business logo will take pride of place on the back of one our brand new wetsuits, and you will be proudly associated with a well-known, trusted and highly respected volunteer organisation, which has provided over 20 years of service to the community.
Check our auction on Trademe or email Alli, our Funding Coordinator, for more information.
