Lifeboat Experience

A simulated search and rescue exercise. After donning your professional rescue PFD and helmet, you will be part of the team and involved in all aspects of the rescue. You will carry out a coastal search and help complete a successful rescue operation after a high speed launch to find the last known position.

We have state of the art radar and side scan sonar to undertake search and rescue operations with real search patterns. Get a taste of the professional training the RNLI and HM Coastguard undergo.

Scenarios will be tailored to suit individuals, groups, corporate events and commercial team building. You will be encouraged to get stuck in to maximise your experience and enjoyment.

We will also run through casualty recovery and basic first aid procedures. A truly unique and extraordinary adventure.

Meet down at Newquay Harbour and go to the steps at the end of South quay past the harbour Masters office. Meet by the ODYSSEY Marine Adventures sign. Your skippers Pete and Matt will be there waiting to greet you. Bring your own wetsuit for this adventure or you can hire one for £5 from our friends at Newquay Watersports Centre . Modern self inflating life jackets are provided. You do need to be able to swim to take part in this adventure.

Parking is extremely limited in the harbour so we advise using one of the local car parks 

Please try and bring as few personal belongings and valuables down to the harbour as possible as they are likely to get wet on the boat and there are limited storage facilities at the harbour.

This is an active adventure and all participants will be asked to sign a medical form & disclaimer to say they are fit and well and can swim in order to take part and fully understand the risks involved.

Camera’s and mobile devices to capture the incredible adventure are permitted on board (the more waterproof the better) however we unfortunately cannot cover for any possible damaged caused so you bring it on board at your own risk. You can purchase or hire a waterproof mobile phone case also from Newquay Watersports Centre if required.

Book a full group of 9 and only pay for 8!


The Location

Based in the UK’s surf capital Newquay, on the North coast of Cornwall,  the area traditionally covered by RNLI and the HM Coastguard encompasses all the major, busy Newquay beaches such as Holywell Bay, Crantock, Fistral, Tolcarne, Porth Beach and Watergate Bay and all the coastline in between hence why they are some of the busiest rescue teams in Cornwall; so what better place to participate in a lifeboat experience?

With everything from sandy beaches, great surf, beautiful weather, great food, activities and on and off the water, we think there’s no better place to be whether your visiting with family, friends, celebrating on a stag or hen do or as an individual.

Enjoy some teamwork and gain some professional search & rescue skills by learning from the best whilst out along the Atlantic coastline. If you’re local, then why not discover a different side to your coastline? Plus, you have more choice of dates to book with us!

Now accessible from an improved dual carriageway on the A30, links via train and coach and not to mention Cornwall Airport Newquay being situated just 15 minutes from the centre of the harbour town, why wouldn’t you choose to visit one of the UK’s top destinations?
