Great trip out, our guide pointed out a few interesting landmarks on our circuit, was constantly looking for wakes from other boats to get a bit of bounce going, and did some cool fast turns at the end that left our 2 boys really excited about the ride. Definitely recommend

We thoroughly enjoyed our Rib Ride to Puffin Island. Our skipper, Mike, was brilliant; very knowledgable about the area & wildlife as well as great with the boat - he made the ride exhilarating and interesting. We will definitely be back! :-)

Had the pleasure of doing the bridges and swellies tour with Sion as skipper. Sion is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humour. The whole experience of booking, boarding, safety briefing and the trip it's self was excellent. All staff I spoke with were extremely helpful, well mannered and efficient. Well done to you all. Couldn't recommended enough,... More

A family member gave me a voucher for the "Bridges and Swellies" trip as a birthday gift, almost 8 months previously! I was waiting for fine weather - not easy during summer 2015. To my shame I'd never been ON the Menai Straits despite having been born and bred, and spent most of my life, close to them. It was... More

Great fun and would do it again. The only negative is that the boat was late and we didn't get the full hour.

Excellent trip with Ollie, who was great. Good explanation of safety etc then a whizz around in the rib. Our 10 and 7 year olds really enjoyed it, especially when Ollie opened the boat up and did some turns! Would definitely recommend this, it isn't cheap but how often are you going to be able to whizz round the swellies?... More
