Ribride on the Menai Straits

Will was our skipper for our Bridges And Swellies hour long trip on 14th March 2015. He explained all the safety procedures to make sure that we had a safe and unforgettable experience. Wills knowledge of the local area and stories were both humorous and enlightening. It was then onto the fun of the water,with the twists and turns and... More

A brilliant hour and a half out to Puffin Island and back with loads of twist and turns and donuts! Captain Charles was great and looked after us and showed us the wildlife and stories on the way. Would thoroughly recommend this to anyone, we went really fast but never felt uncomfortable, can't wait to do it again!!

This was a suprise present for my 60th Birthday. A fabulous experience. Having spent a lot of time on the water I am hard to impress; this certainly succeeded. Charles was very knowledgeable and his insights brought the trip to life. A real bonus was that having enquired, they kindly agreed to ' dog sit' our Jack Russell whilst we... More

Fantastic experience, Charles had a lot of interesting history and knowledge about various points and animals across our journey! He was very caring, ensuring we were all okay before pushing the boat to the point where extreme skill was needed. I would prompt anyone who is hesitant to just book and go experience this thrill. They will cater for a... More

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!
