The Royal Canadian Marine Search & Rescue Station 35 (RCM-SAR 35) is a group of skilled volunteers who donate their time to provide 24-hour year-round emergency search and rescue services on the Victoria waterfront and beyond. Together with the Canadian Coast Guard and other local emergency service providers they ensure help is always available to mariners in distress. They serve from Oak Bay in the east to Sooke in the west. The Victoria, Oak Bay and Sooke stations work cooperatively to provide coverage around southern Vancouver Island
RCM-SAR 35 receives limited funds from the Canadian Coast Guard but relies on community support to keep our crews equipped and our rescue vessel on call. Secure tax deductible donations can be made to the Victoria Marine Rescue Society.
