At the island we saw plenty of Seals, Cormorants, Guillemot and Kittiwake. Kids of 5 and 7 loved the ride and seeing the animals. The real excitement came on the way back... More

Or maybe that was the other way round. The booking was easy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our driver was Charles, who had some wonderful stories and... More

A family group with ages from 9 to 80 had a wonderful 3hrs courtesy of Charles (the Captain) and his Rib Ride boat. From the staff in the office to the crew on the landing stage a real credit to company. Even though we had some BIG swells and waves, at no time did any of us feel at risk.... More

How glad I am she did, it was worth every penny very professional company Brilliant Friendly Skipper. Original boat developed fault... More

Done 4 rib rides around the UK and this one was the fastest, wettest, bumpiest and best by far. Thanks Ollie for a great experience.

Great speed boat ride to Puffin Island. Skipper Mike takes time to give you a guided tour in between putting the boat through its paces. I think I need to change my job. Safety briefing very good, felt safe the whole time. Definitely recommended.
