Daniel Gengler and John Garza are two of the 12-member crew that makes up the Pacific Coast Water Rescue group. The non-profit organization offers emergency medical standby services at water-based events, as well as boating and CPR classes.

Pacific Coast Water Rescue Captain Services (PCWR) has a legacy of serving and educating its community for the past eight years.

The group’s six captains have over 200 years’ experience in maritime work from fire boat and military service to salvage and damage control. The captains can provide instruction on all types of vessels, educating boat owners and promoting safe practices.

“The big new things we are doing are San Francisco Bay and Delta charters,” said John Garza, founder of PCWR. “Our education is the same, we offer training to the public for safe powerboat handling and also give private lessons so people can get trained on their boats and yachts.”
