Welcome to Whitby Lifeboat Station

Whitby Lifeboat Station is situated on the east coast of England, in North Yorkshire, clearly visible within the busy and attractive harbour of Whitby. A lifeboat station has been operating here since 1802, from 2007 the volunteer crew have benefited from a brand-new building.

The station houses our D-Class inshore lifeboat OEM Stone III, crew training rooms a galley and office whilst the Trent Class All-Weather lifeboat George and Mary Webb lies afloat outside.

Our website contains up to date information about the crew, our boats and our station, as well as photos, videos and reports from callouts.
