Saving Lives at Sea

Who we are

Coastguard Hibiscus is one of 25 Coastguard units forming the Coastguard Northern Region. The unit consists of local volunteers with the common goal of saving lives at sea.

Coastguard Hibiscus operates two Coastguard Rescue Vessels: a 9.5 m Naiad RIB based at Gulf Harbour Marina, and a 7.7 m Sealegs™ amphibious vessel based at Stanmore Bay. Despite being crewed by volunteers (with jobs and families), the boats and their crew are available to respond to any emergency 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
