Portaferry Lifeboat Station

Portaferry is one of seven RNLI lifeboat stations operating a lifeboat funded by viewers of the BBC television programme Blue Peter. The station was established due to the increase in pleasure boating activity in the Strangford Lough area and when Cloughey Lifeboat Station closed.
