Trips on Lucy Lavers

Following her restoration and return from the 75th anniversary of Dunkirk in 2015, Lucy Lavers now lives in the working fishing port of Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk,

where she served twice as the town's relief lifeboat. She gives trips and charters afloat from April to October (weather permitting) to the public, schools and other groups, acting as a floating ambassador to help people understand and experience our maritime heritage. 

On land her story will continue to be told through films, photographs and displays at Rescue Wooden Boats Maritime Heritage Centre in Stiffkey, Norfolk, and here on the website. 

Lucy Lavers trips and charters

We are delighted that trips and charters on Lucy Lavers will be operated from June by Curlew Coastal Charters. The newly formed Wells-based Curlew Coastal Charters will be running Lucy Lavers on behalf of Rescue Wooden Boats, led by experienced  local skipper Liam Pink  who is offering a range of trips and charters .

These include daily cruises of 1.5 hours in or near Wells harbour based on the stories of Dunkirk Little Ship Lucy Lavers and the local RNLI, as well as 4 or 8 hour trips or private charters based on customers’ preferences. Options include trips along our coastline, visiting local harbours and areas of outstanding natural beauty, getting in touch with nature, bird watching and much more. These bespoke trips include a locally sourced seafood picnic (with vegetarian and vegan options)
