Capsize Experience

For an unforgettable experience, visit the heart of RNLI training 

The RNLI has developed a couple of experiences that can genuinely be described as unique. The RNLI Capsize Experience gives participants a hands-on taster of the training our lifeboat crews undergo.

Most of the half day experience takes place in the sea survival centre at the RNLI College in Poole, home of RNLI training. Whilst the RNLI Capsize Experience has been developed to be enjoyable and fun, it's also challenging.

Sea conditions will worsen until the Atlantic 85 lifeboat is capsized by an overhead crane. You'll work as a team and learn how trainee crew members prepare to survive their worst nightmare. Join us for an experience you'll never forget whether you're someone looking for a unique challenge, corporate organisation looking to inspire and motivate your team or club/society looking for an extraordinary team activity.

£240 pp (including VAT and refreshments). Minimum 6 people. 

Participants not only enjoy an exciting and memorable experience they are also supporting a good cause as every pound spent helps the RNLI save lives at sea. For information and booking call 01202 663489 or email
