HM Coastguard contacted Wells Lifeboat shortly before 4pm on Wednesday (January 8) following a 999 call from two visitors to the coast who had become cut off on the incoming tide whilst walking on Stiffkey Marshes.
The inshore lifeboat was launched at 4.10pm and headed towards Stiffkey.
A Coastguard mobile unit was also tasked and they assisted in guiding the lifeboat towards the casualties on the marshes.
The casualties did not require medical assistance but were taken safely ashore following the drama.
