I booked as a surprise for my son's 16th .. and I'm so glad I did! I was a bit worried that the speed, or lack of it, would disappoint as these things often do, but it absolutely didn't. Our 'captain' was full of fun, information and best of all he absolutely threw the boat around to ensure maximum thrills... More

Had a great time with rib ride on 18th August, was more than i expected. We took four adults and two teenagers, had lots of laughs with the twists and turn of the boat. Very memorable and enjoyable day of our holiday, in fact it was the best day. Thank you, would highly recommend.

I can't recommend this highly enough, Charles was very informative & interesting. He always checked my 8 year old daughter was ok, (she loved it) in fact I would have done the trip again if I had been staying longer, excellent fun for all ages.

I did the Swellies trip on Saturday with my two daughters and father-in-law, and we all loved it. I have a jet ski, but don't take my daughters on it on the sea as it does not feel safe to do so, but the rib ride is a fantastic way of experiencing the same kind of excitement, but in a... More

Great ride, enjoyed by all. Also the information given was amusing and unlike most of the information from guides we were able to remember stuff. Great boat being a bit of a nerd I had to ask about the engine and yes it's fast, we all felt very safe at all times. Oh even the guy in the office was... More

All I can say is totally awesome. We booked a 2 hour ride, having done a 1 hour trip down the Menai Straits earlier in the year. We left Holyhead and headed out to the Skerries, were the seals looked at us as we did them!! Then over to South Stack before returning to Holyhead. The weather was fantastic, so... More

Two trips in one week. One dry & one slightly less so. As a parent I was reassured about the attention to safety. As a participant, exhilarating & informative. Good value for money, and will definitely be on the itinerary at our next visit (subject to weather conditions of course!)
