Welcome to NCI Caister lookout station.
The NCI watchroom occupies the former Lifeboat Station look-out by kind invitation of the Independent Caister Volunteer Lifeboat Service. The Station was initially opened in 2011 and formally, in 2012, by the local BBC television journalist and broadcaster, Susie Fowler-Watt.
The station at Caister is unique amongst NCI look-outs in that it is situated within operational lifeboat facilities as opposed to redundant Coastguard watchstations more usually taken over by the charity. That said, despite our unique location, we are no different to our NCI colleagues elsewhere; whilst we have a close working relationship with the Caister Lifeboat, we adhere to strict NCI protocols regards the recording and reporting of incidents and - unless directed by the Coastguard - do not get directly involved in Search and Rescue operations.
Access is via the Coastal Car Park on Beach Road or via Tan Lane footpath
