About Rib Ride
RibRide, the original and best! A multi award winning Adventure Boat Tour company, one of only 12 operators worldwide to have been awarded the prestigious BlueFlag. Experience the tranquility of the Menai Straits, its stately homes, ferocious tides and whirlpools. Travel seaward to either Llanddwyn Island, a rocky peninsula of outstanding beauty surrounded by white sandy beaches or Puffin Island and its seal colony and swarms of varied birds. Our vessels are state of the art RIBs with quiet but powerful 300hp engines capable of carrying up to 11 people at 50 mph, in comfort however if you just want speed then Velocity is the worlds fastest RibRide. Alternatively RibRide Explorer operates from Holyhead taking in the Skerries and the Stacks (summer months) to witness the huge amounts of visiting birds and marine mammals. While you are with us, why not plan to enjoy Dylans, our fabulous on site restaurant?

Exciting and interesting, Mike (our captian) was very friendly, knowledgable and professional. Exhilarating and comfortable. Reception was happy to greet us and whole process of booking in and boarding the RIB was so easy. Can't wait until I try the Velocity ride.

Took 4 teen girls on the Puffin Island tour. Perfect mix of a thrilling ride with nature watching too. Saw lots of sea birds, seals and even a glimpse of porpoises. In addition added a bit of wave jumping and the whole thing was awesome!...More
