The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) is a voluntary non-profit organization in South Africa tasked with saving lives through drowning prevention. It consists of coastal stations and inland stations on dam. There are over 1000 volunteers equipped with sponsored rescue craft, rescue vehicles, quad bikes and tractors.

The NSRI works closely with other Search and Rescue organisations[example needed] in South Africa.
