West Pilbara Volunteer Sea Search & Rescue Group

The West Pilbara Volunteer Sea Search and Rescue Group operate from Dampier, Western Australia providing sea search and rescue services to the boating public. We are a member of Volunteer Marine Rescue of Western Australia

Our History
The WPVSSRG was formed in 1974 by a small group of the Dampier boating fraternity, and was incorporated in 1976. Since then the group has grown to over 40 members providing a 24/7 on call roster for rescue operations.

Group Location
The group base is situated at the Hampton Harbour Boat & Sailing Club in Dampier. This is an ideal position for the launching and control of rescue operations.

Our Rescue Vessels
West Pilbara  Volunteer Sea Search & Rescue Group operates two dedicated rescue craft, the 'North West Shelf Venturer' and the 'Captain Neilsen'.

Radio Operation
The group has extensive marine radio equipment with 27MHz, VHF and HF radios including  radio direction finding equipment and base station facilities. 

The search & rescue service provided by WPVSSRG is available to any member of the public free of charge and our crews are made up of local volunteers dedicated to providing a professional service to the boating public.

Appropriate training is provided for Group Members with training days held each month. The group also offers training courses in Marine Radio operation to the general public.

Joining the Group
To maintain the excellent community service provided by the West Pilbara Volunteer Sea Search & Rescue Group, we need dedicated volunteers like you! We have members from all walks of life, members who own boats and some who do not. You are welcome to join us as a member or to support us with a tax deductible donation.
