In 1866, the Looe lifeboat station was first established on East Looe beach.
Operating from a new boathouse on the east side of the river at Looe, the lifeboat station has two inshore lifeboats – a B class and a D class.

This station is classed as an Explore station. Explore stations offer the best visitor experience. With free access, you can go inside and look around the station, see the lifeboat and, in most cases, pre-book a tour.

They are normally open all year and have an RNLI gift shop.
