Lifeguarding is our core role at Mount Maunganui Lifeguard Service, patrolling the stretch of coast from Mount Main Beach to Tay St, and providing first aid and emergency response support to Mauao and Pilot Bay. Prevention is our driving force. We want to recognise hazards and react, before a rescue is necessary.
