BASRA Grand Bahama - Since 1960 the Bahamas Air Sea Rescue Association of Grand Bahama made its mandate to save persons in distress on the sea. Solely manned and operated by volunteers, BASRA has saved many lives and been involved in thousands of rescues. With the assistance of both the Bahamas Defense Force and the U.S. Coast Guard, BASRA Grand Bahama maintains a watchful eye on the Northern Bahamas seas.

BASRA currently operates two vessels for search and rescue missions. These vessels cost $250 per hour to operate and missions range anywhere from 6 to 8 hours. We do not require those rescued to reimburse this fee as we are in the business of saving lives and operate as a non-profit charity.

However, we do need help to keep us afloat. Your annual contribution can make a huge difference to our bottom line. Remember our next mission may SAVE you. Help us by becoming a BASRA member today. Our funds come only from public support through apparel sales, memberships, donations and events such as the August swim race. Any funds you are willing to give will be gratefully accepted.

BASRA's Search and Rescue directors maintain a roster of 6 teams of volunteers. Each team has a captain, medic and a crewman who remain in a constant state of preparedness to deploy on rescues 24 hours per day, 365 days per year as they have done since 1960.
