Great fun for all on board. The skipper was very friendly and informative with local history and other points of interest. We saw porpoises, seals and various bird life - would highly recommend and we look forward to our next trip! Wrap up warm though it can get cold!! Fantastic trip a 'must-do' for all visitors and locals :-)

Had a really great time on the rib ride despite a pretty cold & damp day. Will - our navigator, was excellent - he was confident and knowledgeable and had excellent people skills and made the experience all the better. I would recommend the rib ride to anyone, in fact I may well do it again!!
