Bloody Brilliant! Loved It Loved It Loved It! Worth every penny - went under both bridges as far as Plas Newydd, then back just beyond Bangor Pier. Saw places you can't see from land and did some great 007 chases and stunts (while the kids on the boat sang the James Bond theme tune!) Great atmosphere and Great Fun -... More

41 of us went out on the RIBS on 8th August. We had four boats on a private charter. Out of all the things we did in North Wales during our weeks summer camp it was voted number one by The young people! The skippers were brilliant (and I think having just as much fun as the kids as they... More

When you're on vacation, this is one time you will want to be taken for a ride!! Hang on to your hats. As the engine roared, we "flew" through the water at speeds that seem to give us all face lifts. We spun around in figure 8's to see how close to the water we could be. There were some... More

They supply all life jackets but I recommend waterproofs. I also recommend warm clothing with... More

The boat ride was wonderful and despite growing up on Anglesey our host,Charles, told us loads of interesting trivia I didn't know. We went for my sons 12th birthday and it was certainly a birthday to remember.

We went on 6th Sept - Bridges and Swellies trip - but are already planning to go back for the longer trip! It was so exhilarating to blast around but also we enjoyed the information and sightseeing elements of the trip. It was a treat for my mum's 70th and the whole family had a fantastic time - thanks to... More

We did this on Sept 1st, had an amazing time. Only four of us on the boat. We saw the seals, then went round Puffin Island where it was quite choppy and wet. Back at speed to Beaumaris doing lots of doughnuts. Our driver (Will) was brilliant, as soon as we got off we wanted to do it again. Highly... More
