Just got back from the Bridges & Swellies trip today. Booking was easy and I received 5* customer service from all staff during the process. Charles our skipper was very friendly and knowledgeable. I learn't so much about my local area! Can't wait to book the next trip with Rib Ride!

Brilliant morning with Will doing the Bridges and Swellies on 07 April 2015, enjoyed it that much that we booked the Puffin Island trip for 10 April 2015. Mike was our driver, lovely calm morning, saw seals, porpoise and a whole host of seabirds. My sons aged 14 and 18 really enjoyed it.
