JOIN THE CREW; BE A HERO
Join the Lifeboat crew for a life like search and rescue patrol along the Cornish Coastline; from Newquay, along past Fistral Beach and do a sweep along Crantock and Holywell Bay. Weather dependent, we may also head in the opposite direction up towards Watergate Bay which has some common cut off points by Bedruthan & Carnewas.
If we find someone in trouble along our notoriously rugged coastline where cut offs and incidents are common, we will be notifying H.M Coastguard and the RNLI LIFEBOAT Team. Your added surveillance might just save someone’s life. Everything from guiding paddle boarders back towards shore to searching for missing persons or dogs will all be part of the adventure.
Gain some knowledge of how search and rescue operations are executed, hear first hand stories from your skippers and learn about sea safety and survival techniques. A great experience for groups; book a full boat of 9 and only pay for 8 people!

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. Participants must be able to swim to take part in this adventure.
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.
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.
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!
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 patrol?
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 a local, then you’re lucky to be living in such a wonderful place and 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?
