MarineMaxVacations has donated $4,600 to Virgin Islands Search and Rescue.

VISAR is an independent, volunteer-based non-profit organization funded almost entirely by charitable donations. It provides on-call emergency service to the Virgin Island community, including the island of Tortola where MarineMaxVacations is headquartered. It has a fleet of more than 40 custom Aquila power catamarans.

“We are proud to support VISAR,” Raul Bermudez, MarineMaxVacations vice president charter division, said in a statement. “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.”
