There’s No Charge For Our
Volunteer Service And Our Training
And Equipment Is Covered By Donations.


The Wakatipu SAR Group comprises individuals who volunteer their time and are often supported in their search & rescue work by employers who grant leave of absence from their paid employment. Our group operates in the “Adventure Capital” of NZ, and are kept busy with various live operations

With the numerous work face each year, there is a need to train to meet critical situations that may be encountered to search for and rescue victims. This work can also require specialist rescue equipment and training which does not come cheap. The Group is always thankful for the help and financial support from the community, groups and organisations to allow our work to proceed in a professional manner.

We are tremendously grateful to and humbled by all of our donors. Our services would not be possible without all of your support. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
