Welcome to the Burnham-on-Sea Lifeboat Station website. This site is maintained by lifeboat station personnel and as such is the official Burnham-on-Sea RNLI website. Within these pages you will find station history and indicative operational information, detailing the service provided to those who spend time on the water off of the Somerset coast, from Watchet to Brean Down.

Our station at Burnham-On-Sea has only been operational since December 23rd 2003 and is crewed by a highly trained, efficient and enthusiastic bunch of men and women, supported in the background by admin staff, station supporters, shop staff, fundraisers and many others.

Through the dedication and training of around 30 volunteer boat crew, shore crew and officers at Burnham-On-Sea, our role is to 'Save Lives at Sea'. Please do not forget that our life saving activities are only possible because of voluntary contributions. Please support the RNLI.
