Falmouth Lifeboat Station remains closed for visitors and tours at the current time due to the ongoing pandemic situation. This is in order to protect the operational integrity of the crew whilst the COVID-19 virus is prevalent.

Communication with the station will still be available through the website and our social channels, and we hope many who wish to come to see us will be able to do so in the not-too-distant future.

In the meantime, why not take a virtual tour of our Severn class all-weather lifeboat Richard Cox Scott here

Falmouth RNLI Shop

Because of the new national lockdown and in order to protect the shop volunteers (a number of whom are in the high risk category), the station’s RNLI Shop is now closed. This will also reduce infection risk to the crew. Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused, and we thank you for your understanding and ongoing support. We hope to be able to open the shop again in early December once restrictions are lifted.

In the meantime you can shop online for RNLI goods including Christmas cards, diaries and calendars at https://shop.rnli.org
