The Port Sorell Surf Life Saving Club is one of 15 Surf Life Saving clubs in Tasmania that provide volunteer educational and emergency rescue services to the community.
We are a volunteer community service that relies solely on community donations, fundraising and corporate sponsorship to achieve our objective of providing safe beaches throughout the year.

We welcome you and hope that you’ll find our club a great place to enjoy with your family and friends.
