With ~80 volunteers in the Wellington region the local coastguard are out every weekend and public holiday to help those that get in trouble on the water. A team is always on call and they complete a range of courses to be prepared in an emergency. Coastguard New Zealand receive 15% of their funding from government the rest comes from fundraising efforts like ours.
No! Our aim is to get as many of our divers underwater as possible in 24 hours.
We offer a variety of dives including Refresher Dives if it has been a while and try dives for those who have never dived before. For our certified dives there are scavenger hunts and photography competitions and you can complete some of your adventure dives and improve your skills or just grab a buddy and explore the site.
Once you have registered we will send you a link so you can book in for your dives. These are 45 minute dives scheduled so we can have a buddy team underwater at all times. If you can't commit to a specific dive don't worry just turn up at the beach and we will find a buddy for you.
Our divers gain sponsorship per dive or minute underwater or gather donations from friends, family and colleagues. Once you are registered we will send you a sponsorship form and some ideas to get started.
Prizes are awarded for the diver that raises the most money and we have a couple of random draws for all our divers that raised money for the Coastguard.
There will also be a variety of raffles and lucky dip competitions available to enter.
