St Ives Lifeboat
St Ives Lifeboat First was established c.1840 and has had a remarkable history of bravery with over 55 awards for gallantry being presented. Over its 165-year history, it has also seen tragedy with seven lifeboat crew losing their lives saving others at sea.
This station is classed as a Discover station. Our crews from Discover stations are equally welcoming to visitors but many of these stations were built before visitors were considered. These stations normally open their boathouse doors during the summer months.
