The Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue Station 25 (RCM-SAR25) is volunteer organization operated by the Gulf Island Marine Rescue Society (GIMRS) that maintains a permanent 24/7 marine search and rescue capability in the vicinity of Salt Spring Island BC Canada.

We consist of 30+ volunteer members – men and women of all ages - with a search and rescue vessel based at Vesuvius Harbour.

Our core function is responding to marine search and rescue emergencies; however, we also engage with our local community through a variety of Marine Safety Awareness and Education Programs.
