“Birthday surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2014 NEW

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.

“Boss Christmas Party 2014”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2014

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!

“Great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2014

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.

“Fantastic way to see the bridges over the Menai Strights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2014

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 to the mountains.
Worth every penny..... were going on the puffin island ride next year or the Bear Grills boat.
GO ON BOOK A RIDE - YOU WILL LOVE IT!!

“Thrilling adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2014

A party of ten of us went on the rib ride on Sunday 2 November. What an experience!! The member of staff was an excellent host and was very knowledgable about the Menai Strait. He was also a very skillful skipper of the rib ride and ensure passenger safety at all times. The ride was exciting and enthralling, with bursts of speed and tight turns at speed. And didn't get wet. Must do this again.
