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

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.

Fortunately Ribrides at Menai Bridge had their new 4 tonne rib in action which allowed to to go out safely and enjoy the interesting local history plus enjoy the adrenaline of the rough conditions. Boat captain was very experienced and equipment first... More
