In order to protect our visitors, RNLI volunteers and to ensure our volunteer crews are able to launch our lifeboats on service, the team here at Barmouth Lifeboat Station have sadly taken the difficult decision to postpone the opening of our shop to the public. Our priority is to reduce the risk of potential infection to our volunteer crew and volunteer shop workers, ensuring that we can continue saving lives at sea should the pager sound. We continue to monitor government and RNLI advice, and will let you know via social media when things change,

Please follow us on Facebook, instagram and Twitter for the latest information.

In the meantime please #respectthewater and #staysafe Remember if you are in difficulty on the water or see someone else in difficulty call 999 and ask for the coastguard.

First shout of 2021

The first pagers of the year sounded at 1.23pm as ALB Ella Larsen was gashed by HM Coastguard to the report of a surfer in difficulty spotted off Tywyn coast. In good visibility and slight seas, as Ella Larsen and her volunteer crew were pushing into the surf, reports over the radio, from the Coastguard, were that the surfer had made his way to the shore and the crew were stood down A false alarm with good intent. ALB Ella Larsen and her crew returned to the boathouse where she was readied for service by 2pm. Wed like to congratulate Kane Triggs on his first shout since joining the RNLI as snore crew.
