Portsmouth is the RNLI’s 10th busiest lifeboat station with around 100 launches a year.



The station is entirely managed and operated by volunteers. The crew are on a paging system providing standby cover 24 hours a day 365 days a year and will man the lifeboats when requested by HM Coastguard via the pagers (yes, we have been called out on Christmas Day too!).

A lifeboat station was first established in Portsmouth in 1886, located on Southsea seafront, and the fine tradition of our past lifeboatmen continues to be upheld by our present lifeboat crews at Eastney Point.
