Russell Radio is run mostly by a team of volunteers.  Our existence very much depends on the generosity of our members and sponsors.

We encourage anybody that uses our services to become a member.  Membership costs just $100 per year which we believe is a small price to pay to help keep yourself, your family and your friends safe on the water.

Visiting boaties to the Bay of Islands can also take out a monthly membership for $25.

Benefits of membership:

  • Every time you hit the water you know we’re here to help when you need us
  • Regular marine forecasts including real time wind strength and direction
  • Warnings of navigational hazards
  • Peace of mind
