There's been a 12 per cent increase in the number of incidents dealt with by the Coast Guard this year.

It responded to just under 3 thousand - with April and July the busiest months.

The service says it provided help in 474 cases where a loss of life or long-term injury was avoided.

A total of 68 drownings were recorded this year - a decrease of 7 on last year.
