The St Ives Lifeboat Station currently operates two boats – a Shannon class all-weather lifeboat and a D class inshore lifeboat. Visitors to St Ives Lifeboat Station can enjoy a look around the Shannon lifeboat and take in some of the information about historical rescues of the coast of St Ives. There is also an RNLI shop where you can purchase a souvenir.
The RNLI volunteers often go on exercise on a Wednesday evening. Look out for them around the Harbour front.
During August is St Ives Lifeboat Day, a fund raising event run by the RNLI where the lifeboat can be seen in exercise with the Coastguard Helicopter as well as a variety of entertainment for all the family.
