The rewarding feeling achieved by supporting something you believe in just comes with the territory. Others may gain experience and an outstanding recommendation that offers them a helpful edge to impress a future employer.

The W C Daldy Preservation Society traces its roots back to 1978. In 1980 we began to operate the ship on Auckland Harbour as a charter vessel. Learn more This became the foundation for a series of annual public charters and sailings which has funded, (with the addition of donations) surveys, general repairs and MAJOR restoration projects to benefit the ongoing preservation progress.
Since that time, the WC Daldy Preservation Society Inc has operated as a membership-governed society with its own comittee. WCDPS is dedicated to preserving the tug as a living piece of history. Learn more
The W C Daldy Preservation Society always extends a warm welcome to new members and volunteers. Volunteering and attending the various programs WCDPS offers is a great way to meet others who share their interest in steam ships.
Even if you are not able to make a long term volunteer commitment, WCDPS offers a number of opportunities for you to help with smaller, short-term projects. Someone with experience will train you and help you get started.
