Welcome to NSRI (National Sea Rescue Institute) Station 18 in Melkbosstrand, approximately 30km from Cape Town on the West Coast of South Africa.

The NSRI is a non-profit organisation (NPO) and our rescue personnel are all volunteers who do not get paid for the service we render. We are entirely dependent on public and corporate funding for our operational and capital expenses, as we receive very limited government funding.

Our rescue station's main area of operation stretches from Dolphin Beach, Table View in the south to Grotto Bay in the north and seaward for 15 Nautical Miles.

Upcoming events to meet our crew or sign-up:

* Our crew meets every Friday evening at 6pm for when the rescue crew taking over standby for the coming week, meets at the Rescue Station. If you are interested in joining the NSRI, then you are welcome to come in for a chat and see what we do. Just ask for the Station Commander or Duty-Coxswain when you arrive and the crew will point you in the right direction. 

* Our annual NSRI 4x4 Family Adventure day will take place on 07 October 2017. This is an alcohol free event. The consumption of alcohol will not be permitted at any time during this event.

Go to Fund-raising section for more details. 

Our latest operations include:

*Currently we are getting ready for the holiday season and will update when we can.

* During the Winter, we have been busy with training courses for our new crew members. Courses such as Fire Fighting, Navigation and First Aid were completed. Practical training is ongoing so that we can get our trainees qualified.
