When "Thank You" is not enough

We all have a list of words we never want to hear.
"Missing Diver" is on my list.


We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the searchers. The personnel at the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue stations are volunteers. Without them this story would have had a much different ending, one that is difficult to contemplate.

Annual Pleasure Craft Safety Checks

Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue volunteers offer their time and commitment to provide marine search and rescue, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Members also work in the community to promote public boating safety.
