The RCMSAR.34 Cowichan recognizes, and gives deep thanks, that we work, live, play, and camp on the traditional lands and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples.

The Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCM-SAR) Station 34 is a volunteer based organization located at the Fisherman’s Wharf in Cowichan Bay, British Columbia.

  • to promote marine safety
  • to support the Canadian Coast Guard
  • to provide a humanitarian service
  • to maintain the highest professional standards
