We made up a small party aged between 7 and 70 for a thrilling 90 minute ride around the Menai Strait. The weather was glorious; the rib very comfortable and the trip comprised a mixture of experiences, from detailed histories of sights along the way, to high speed heart in the mouth turns across the water. Brilliant! Can't wait to... More

Went there with a friend and my father (I'm 17 years), on a very nice day, no waves on the water, which made it just a bit boring, but "captain" Will made the best out of it. Though it would be a bit more action, but it was a bit more cultural, like a guided tour on the water. Very... More

This was a really fun day out for me and my partner. Will, our skipper was very informative but not in the way it makes you bored. His stories about the local area and the people who lived there were really intriguing and I found myself telling them to others when I returned home! The boat is super fast and... More

Excellent trip in the Menai Strait with Ribride, informative but also great fun. Highly recommended and will definitely do more trips with this company when next in North Wales

Did the trip from Beaumaris to Puffin Island. It was great fun. Had a permanent smile on my face all the way. Loved the high speed turns and doughnuts and we also saw seals and kittiwakes and cormorants. Expect to get wet but loved it

This is a 'must do' ride. Every part of the experience was exciting and memorable. Will, our skipper was knowledgeable and fun. He was able to discuss geology, ornithology and sea wildlife as well as some very interesting history of the harbour. The day was perfect, blue skies and calm ocean. When we moored up in the Skerries, the Arctic... More

My partner and I decided to book the puffin and seals tour for a little bit of fun and we were so happy we decided to do it. The rib ride from start to finish was amazing. Our skipper was friendly, informative and clearly loved their job. At times the throttle was fully opened up and some turns were thrown... More
