Northland Sea Rescue Demo

Ever wondered how rescues are done at sea? Come along to watch the demo by Northland Rescue Helicopter with Coastguard.


15 Oct 2023, 11:30 am

Hihiaua Park, 197 Reyburn House Lane, Whangārei 0110, New Zealand


Our friends at Northland Rescue Helicopters will be treating us to a demonstration boat winch retrieval this Sunday at 11.30am – on Whangārei Harbour between Hihiaua Park and Te Matau a Pohe bridge.  Captain Steve Couchman and Co-Pilot Glenn Silva will team up with Winch Operator Paul Davis and Rescue Swimmer Josh Raravula, who will be lowered on to Whangārei Coastguard’s boat where Josh will ‘rescue’ fellow Intensive Care Paramedic Leah Baker.  This is an experience not to be missed so don’t be late!
