I have spent the best part of 40 years on the water, both as a professional seaman but also as a windsurfer, sailboat skipper and canoeist. However, I have to say that my "Ribs ride" trip around the Menai Straits was one of the most stunning waterborne experiences I've ever had. Charles, the skipper of the rib, gave us the... More

Excellent value, took our family of 5 (three teenagers) on the Puffins and Seals trip. The boat captain (sorry, forget his name) was a really cool guy. Gave us a good narrative of local features, stopping to allow everyone to take pictures and also opened up the outboards for a really fast, exciting ride. Weather helped as it was beautifully...

Fabulous experience proving great value for money. An exhilarating ride with very informative commentary throughout which was tailored to the occupants of the boat. We shall definitely be back to book one of the other routes available. Many thanks for making our day so special.

We booked 2 boats for our staff as part of our Christmas weekend on Anglesey and I have to say we had a brilliant time. Phil and Tom were great tour guides and everyone loved the RIB ride on the Menai Strait. Thank you for making our trip special and we'll definitely be back for more!

This is a great way to see the bridges and to get a feel for the unique water flows and coast line. The ride is a mix of fast turns and high speed as well as exploration. The guides are very interesting and fun. The set up is very professional.

This was birthday gift which I was meant to take in October but left it until November 15th. It was for a party of 4 (my wife and two adult sons). As a local, most of what James gave as a historical account was familiar - however it was very informative and witty. Beautiful views across the straight and over... More

He was also a very skillful skipper of the rib ride and ensure passenger safety at all times. The ride was exciting and enthralling, with bursts... More

We booked up for the Seals and Puffins trip and although we knew we wouldnt see puffins because of the time of year, we weren't disappointed in the seal front! The staff here are fantastic, really knowledgable and friendly and diligent, especially in regard to safety. The boat was pristine and the trip was a great mix of interesting facts,... More

It does what it says on the tin. Very professional, friendly and informative. We saw the seals, cormorants and didn't get wet. I'd recommend this, if you've got £32 to spare.
