Welcome to Nautilos SAR

About NSAR


Nautilos Search and Rescue Team also known as Nautilos SAR, is a non-governmental, non-profitable organisation that was created in 2009 for the purpose of protecting and rescuing human lives. We are a voluntary organisation. One of our main goals is the training of people that are interested in rescuing procedures, and accident prevention methods but also in providing help to people that have engaged in sea incidents.

A second but also very important goal is environmental protection. Nautilos SAR organises several sea and beach cleanups every year.  Additionally, Nautilos SAR undertakes activities that conserve and protect the marine environment. Nautilos Search And Rescue Team studies also methods of preserving sea life and the consequences of climate change, and overfishing in Cyprus and monitors the underwater ecosystem. Our organisation in collaboration with the University of Cyprus participates in archaeological research. 

Nautilos SAR, in the need of education and awareness, implements European and National funded programs. We try to keep our youth active in various activities in many different fields:



(Youth) Unemployment



Skill Development

All our activities and events use non-informal methods of education.

Our organisation has evolved and has established other youth-oriented groups:

Nautilos Cycling Team. Every Tuesday. The starting point in front of the Strovolos Municipality Hall

Hiking Club in collaboration with OTI.

Nautilos SAR is a member of OTI Group.
