The staff are brilliant so a big thank you to the receptionist Kaz and to Charlie for a very warm welcome and interesting historical overview of the Mensi Straits. Alan (the skipper) was awesome as both a navigator and... More

Many businesses like this only run in high season and would cancel if there were only 2 people booked on a trip, but we had our own private rib ride and it was fantastic. Tom was brilliant, we learned lots about the Straits, local history and wildlife and he was really funny. We were well wrapped up (as the booking... More

A grey October day myself, daughter and her best friend took the last three seats on the boat - best thing we ever did. An awesome, breathtaking voyage around the Menai Straits. The "Captain" was a very knowledgeable young man who showed us some amazing sights including four day old baby seals. Highlight was sailing across the swell created by... More

We went on a family rib ride this summer from Menai Bridge and it was fantastic. I was the oldest at 64 and my two grandsons the youngest at 6 and 4.we were slightly worried as the skipper was only young himself but he was brilliant. He kept a very watchful eye on the 2 boys but also obliged when... More

We went with my two boys (11 and 8) and had a superb time. The boys sat up front and we could hear them squealing with delight every time we turned a corner. We caught the straits on a spring high tide so it was fascinating to see the tremendous flow of water making its way through. The boats are... More

What a great hour, my children and I thought it was superb. we just did the short trip up and down the Menai straight, with great 'tour guide' by our skipper. Will definitely be back to go round the island

What do you get if you cross a boat trip, an adrenalin fueled high speed ride out to sea, a wildlife show and an informative guide? a Rib Ride trip to Puffin Island, that's what!
