St Justinians

Home to St Davids RNLI lifeboat station, St Justinians is the slipway we depart from on our trips to Ramsey, Skomer and beyond.

Getting There

St Justinians is a short, 2 mile drive along the country lanes due west of St Davids. On this page is its location on GoogleMaps to help you. From St Davids you need to take a left at the bottom of the Cross Square going down Nun Street, you then need to take the first right and turn you can, its a sharp right downhill towards the cathedral. Follow the road out of town for 2 miles until you reach the end of the road.

Parking

There are two free parking bays right at the end of the road, closest to the lifeboat station itself. Due to the large number of passengers we take on our trips, these can often be full by 9am during the busy season. But don’t worry! There is also a large pay-and-display car park situated next to Rhosson Chapel on the left before you reach the free parking that has enough parking for all our passengers. The cost is £3 per vehicle and covers you for the whole day.

Alternatively, if you have already paid for parking in St Davids then there is a shuttle bus that runs every 30 minutes during the peak season (28th May – 4th September) and every hour between 25th March and 25th September. It departs just 20 yards from our office in St Davids and costs £1.50 each way, dropping you off right at the top of the steps down to the lifeboat station.

Accessibility

The path down to the slipway does have a number of steps to it. Some passengers may feel that these are too much for them and unfortunately there is no other alternative route. Fortunately we can offer an alternative place of boarding at a harbour called Porthclais. Porthclais does not have any steps to it and there is plenty of parking within 100m of where the boat departs from. To use this harbour we do need it to be high tide which is why we cannot operate here all the time. Please call the office and let them know if Porthclais sounds like a more suitable slipway for you to depart from.
