The RNLI Llandudno Lifeboat Facebook page will now have news and updates from the Llandudno Volunteer Fundraising and Visits teams, our RNLI shop in St George’s Place as well as all the Operational news of “shouts” and Crew features. Please take a look.
Welcome to the home of Llandudno RNLI
The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea. This website gives you access to a host of information about Llandudno’s lifeboat, equipment and boathouse, operational and support crews, fundraising and other events, and information about how to visit and support us.
The links below for recent rescues, events and other news will take you to the RNLI main webpage.
Unfortunately due to COVID-19 all fundraising events are cancelled until further notice. This includes the 2020 Lifeboat Day.
Local Coastal Hazards
Advice from Captain Marcus Elliott, Llandudno Lifeboat Volunteer Operations Manager: “Thinking of local dangers, I would reiterate the need for everyone, whether local or not, to check tide times if they are planning to walk around the area’s beaches, particularly those at the resort’s west shore where being cut off by the tide is a common cause of lifeboat call outs and all the more dangerous in the winter when sea temperatures are low. The west shore is a very dangerous place and the Llandudno Lifeboat has been called upon to rescue people on numerous occasions throughout its history, people should really avoid going on the sandbanks to ensure their safety.”
The video below was captured January 2019 when a dog had to be rescued for this very reason.
Please keep off the sand bar at West Shore
