MarineMax supports VISAR

ADVERTISEMENT

Charter company MarineMax Vacations has donated $4,600 to support Virgin Islands Search and Rescue efforts.

VISAR is an independent, volunteer-based nonprofit organization funded almost entirely by charitable donations. It provides on-call emergency service to the Virgin Islands, including the island of Tortola, where MarineMax Vacations is headquartered.

“Through the donations we receive from our charter guests, we are able to support the efforts of this great organization and their dedication to saving life at sea,” Raul Bermudez, vice president of MarineMax Vacations’ charter division, stated in a company press release

“VISAR provides peace of mind to our charter guests,” he stated. “Should anything go wrong, they can dial 767 or SOS on a standard dialing pad to connect to someone for help.”
