Atlantic Pacific International Rescue Boat Project is an NGO with a simple purpose:
we provide lifeboats where there are none.

Our Vision

Atlantic Pacific International Rescue is an NGO with a simple vision; to combat global drowning.


“Drowning is a serious and neglected public health threat claiming the lives of 372,000 people a year worldwide. This death toll is almost two thirds that of malnutrition and well over half that of malaria – but unlike these public health challenges, there are no broad prevention efforts that target drowning.” (World Health Organisation, Global Report on Drowning: Preventing a Leading Killer, 2014)

Our Mission

Atlantic Pacific exists to tackle this crisis and eliminate death by drowning by providing Lifeboats and trained crew to areas of need.


We work with communities around the world who do not have a water rescue service but find themselves in areas vulnerable to flooding and natural disasters.


We operate regardless of political context, out of a universal respect for human life. We welcome donations and support from those who share our vision of a world where everyone, regardless of context, deserves to be rescued at sea.
