All members who wish to compete at Nationals must be financial, proficient and carry out their rostered patrol duties for the club.


As a surf lifesaving club, Maranui assists the Wellington City Council by providing qualified patrols on Wellington beaches. Maranui SLSC is responsible for patrolling the popular Oriental Bay Beach, where the number of beach-goers can swell to over 2,000 on a fine summer's day.

Maranui lifeguards patrol every Saturday, Sunday and public holiday, between 1pm to 6pm, from December through to 1st weekend of March.

Our patrols use SLSC flags and a tower to ensure they're clearly visible to the public. They also use a variety of aids to help ensure public safety, including: rescue tubes, paddleboards, inflatable rescue boats and two-way radios.

Please follow the instructions of lifeguards on patrol and remember to always swim between the flags. 

Patrol Season Starts: Early December
Location: Oriental Bay   



If you cannot make a patrol you need to;

  • Advise your Patrol Captain in a timely manner.

  • Find cover from another lifeguard in a timely manner.

  • You can always turn up to other patrols and lend a hand.
