The club was founded in 1911 to patrol Manly Beach after a law banning daylight swimming was overturned. The founding President of the club was James Bonner, also then Mayor of Manly.
The current club President is actor Tony Bonner, grandson of James Bonner.
The primary role of the club is to provide surf rescue, first aid and promote water safety on Manly Beach. Since 1911, no lives have been lost on the beach while the club has been on patrol.
The club also participates in beach, surf, and ocean competitive sporting activities.
