Welcome to the home of Exmouth RNLI
The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea


Exmouth RNLI Station
Celebrating over 200 years as a lifeboat station, Exmouth RNLI operates an inshore D class lifeboat George Bearman II and the new Shannon class lifeboat R and J Welburn.

We have a visitor viewing gallery above the RNLI gift shop where you can view the all-weather Shannon class lifeboat. You can also see its Launch and Recovery System through the glass, during shop opening hours. Our station conducts visits by arrangement, so book today – we look forward to welcoming you to our station!
