Our wonderful Shop Volunteers will be keeping our well stocked RNLI Shop open late and our knowledgeable Tour Guides will be available to provide information about the station itself, lifeboats, lifesaving equipment, rescue activity and history.  

Subject to operational requirements, both our all weather Shannon lifeboat, 13-03 R & J Welburn and inshore lifeboat, D-805 George Bearman II, will be launching on exercise at shortly after 6pm with a member of the lifeboat crew providing a step by step walkthrough of the launching processes.  Exmouth RNLI Lifeguards will be on hand to provide a demonstration of their work.
