Swanage RNLI Lifeboat station is located at the Southern end of Swanage Bay.
There has been a lifeboat there since 1875. The lifeboat station was rebuilt in 2016 to accommodate the town's new Shannon class all weather lifeboat.
The lifeboat station is open to visitors, you can find the times on our website.
Swanage Lifeboat Station is one of over 230 RNLI lifeboat stations around the coast of the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
The RNLI is a charity and relies on voluntary contributions from the public to keep its lifeboats at sea. At Swanage we have two lifeboats, an All Weather ‘Shannon’ class lifeboat and a ‘D-Class’ inshore lifeboat.
We have a volunteer crew comprising 30 sea going crew and four shore crew who launch and recover the boats.
