I went on the Gogarth tour yesterday (July 26th) and it was worth every penny. I have lived all my life on Anglesey and it was such an amazing experience seeing my favourite places such as South Stack and North Stack from a different angle. I also loved the caves of Gogarth which I knew nothing about!!

We had a superb afternoon aboard the 2pm Skerries Ribride yesterday (26.7.14) with the excellent skipper Charles. The scenery was fantastic & seeing all those sea birds (especially the puffins), seals & porpoises was amazing. Bouncing across the waves was great fun. Charles was enthusiastic, knowledgeable & very interactive - thanks to him for making the trip so enjoyable. I... More

We've jyst had an amazing trip to carmel head, the skerries and gogarth. We even saw a peregrin falcon and went right into a cave. Charles taught us all about geology and local history - all absolutely spot on! Great fun.

The first trip was so good we decided to head out again, less than a week later! The first trip along the coastline to Newborough and Llandwyn was incredibly stunning, with our skippers giving a history of some of the coastal landmarks. The trip to Puffin Island was awesome, having spotted several seals and puffins and other wildlife along the... More

Fantastic hour that gave an alternative view of Wales! It was warm and sunny! Everything from the safety briefing to the information and history was given in a professional and friendly manner. The "Rib" itself was new looking and well cared for, I was advised when we were turning/ speedinding up, and it flew through the waves as there were... More

Before you go, this may look expensive. After (and during!) you realise just what a superb, professional set-up it is, and realise the value is good. The experience is a combination of interesting guided tour, and thrilling speed-boat ride, lasting (on our trip, "Bridges and Skellies") almost an hour. The staff (on the boats and at the office) are keen,... More

Despite the weather (raining! typical welsh weather!) we had a fantastic time with high speed thrills mixed in with historical and interesting facts of the local area. was petrified of the thought of the trip but knew with the right...
