We are Wales’ best adventure boat tour company. Our skippers are your fast and fun guides to the natural history of Anglesey. Come with us for an unbeatable adventure.

We cater for individuals or GROUPS of any age from 4 years old wanting a one hour RibRide, to those more adventurous chartering a rib for the day to go around Anglesey or to chill out on a secluded beach.

Our boats leave from our base at Menai Bridge (right next door to the fabulous Dylan's Restaurant) all year around. We also operate from Holyhead Marina, Beaumaris and Caernarfon during the summer season. Fans of remote island adventure can join our RibRide Explorer Trips from Holyhead.

RibRides require no skill, just the ability to make one largish step down into the boat, see our FAQ's. Outside of extreme weather and the odd splash you will not get wet.... unless you want to! We provide the lifejackets, all you need are soft soled shoes or boots and clothing suitable for a 5-8 degree drop in temperature.

You can either book online or call us on our local rate number to discuss your RibRide. We take all major credit cards.
