The St Agnes RNLI Lifeboat, Blue Peter IV, was assisted by The Newquay RNLI Lifeboat, the Royal Navy Search & Rescue Helicopter from Culdrose and the Fisheries Patrol boat.
Joe Daysh,29, once of the St Agnes RNLI helmsman, said: "Today there are two main aims; fundraising and raising awareness of beach safety.
"It's a big operation here, and everyone deserves thanks, from the guild to the management and the crew."
Aside from the lifesaving spectacles, families and visitors were kept entertained with sandcastle competitions, face painting, welly throwing, and a star appearance from ex-England rugby player Josh Lewsey.
Holiday maker Jenny Vero, 4 from Leeds said: "My best bit was when they capture people and really save them."
All profits raised from today's event will go towards St Agnes RNLI Lifeboat and her volunteer crew.
