Volunteers of Coast Guard Tin Can Bay will remain on duty 7 days per week throughout 2016, and we hope all mariners take advantage of our services, by logging on whenever they venture onto our waterways.
You can log on using radio (VHF 16, 82, 80, 67 and 27.88MHz or 27.90Mhz), phone 5486 4290 or you can make a personal visit to our base at Norman Point anytime between 6am and 6pm.
Public safety and first aid courses have been very successful, and as a result more courses are planned for early 2016.
Schedules for January and February are: First Aid & Resuscitation, White Water and Bar Crossing, Coastal Navigation and Marine Radio Operations. Reservations are required (5486 4290), and strictly on a first in basis as participant numbers are limited.
Coast Guard Tin Can Bay is welcoming new volunteers. A minimum time commitment of 10 hours per month is required after qualification. Those interested in volunteering their services for radio operations, charity collections or boat crew operations should contact us for an interview.
Project “Keep Our Boats Afloat” continues to gain momentum as the 2016 Q2 deadline approaches to fund the project. Members of the public and business community interested in ‘keeping our boats afloat’ please contact us as soon as possible.
