Become a Volunteer

The SA Maritime Museum has an active volunteer program. Over 50 volunteers crew and maintain our vessels, support our education programs, research and care for our collections, manage our library and keep our lighthouse. Volunteers are committed to our goal of preserving maritime heritage and interested in the work of the Museum. They enjoy the camaraderie of being part of the crew and meeting our visitors and passengers.

The Museum urgently needs volunteers with skills in maritime trades. We need master mariners, coxswains, able seafarers and engineers to crew our steam tug Yelta and our timber police launch, Archie Badenoch. We also need metal workers and shipwrights to maintain our vessels.

If you would like to learn more about volunteering, please contact the Museum on 8207 6255 or at
