Fantastic place, doing a fantastic job with fantastic crew. We were lucky enough to see them in action as they were called as I walked along the beach. Fantastic effort by crew to get out fast, and what a machine.

Really enjoyed going on the boat during the open day. Great to get to see the inner workings without being rescued! Very busy as very popular. Enjoyed seeing the scheduled launch too.

We were lucky enough to be in Tenby for a scheduled launch. It was a great experience. We loved the yellow RNLI wellies and bought a pair for our granddaughter.

Lots of youngsters waiting to get on and into the actual boat, but all the guys were very patient with them must have been a long day for everyone involved on the open day

A fab place to visit, we went on an open day where people could go onto the boat, talk to the staff and find out more about the service they offer.

I’ve only seen a handful of rnli stations but this has to be the best I’ve seen with lots of interesting information and videos all housed in its modern new station set next to the old one. The shop also has lots to choose from...More

Free entrance to an interesting and fully operational Lifeboat Station complete with the lifeboat itself as well as other interesting exhibits depicting local lifeboat history. Well worth popping in.
