We are the UK's highest rated 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. Prices start at £25 (£20 kids)

Our Adventure boats and Velocity operate year-round from our base at Menai Bridge where we offer full facilities and benefit from having the fabulous Dylans Restaurant on site. Between April and August fans of remote island adventure can join our RibRide Explorer Trips from Holyhead for volumes of wildlife unseen anywhere else in North Wales

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.

Velocity is our fastest RibRide. This is no ordinary boat, it is an adrenaline-fuelled fast moving RIB going from zero to the ‘speed of scream’. The Skippers will take you out on an amazingly fast adventure reaching optimum ‘Velocity’.

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