Had a fabulous ride out to Puffin Island. Our driver/guide was Shaun and he was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We couldn't have asked for more. We had some great sections where he speeded up ( and we enjoyed the donuts !!) but it was great that he was mindful of the smaller riders and checked they were okay. Can't recommend... More

If you fancy getting up close to some of Anglesey's stunning sea birds and sea animals whilst getting an adrenaline rush at the same time, book an excursion with Rib Ride @ Menai Bridge. Part history tour, part wildlife safari but mainly an excuse to go really fast on water. Shaun our driver struck the right balance of feeding us... More

We required excitement, wildlife and a bit of local information along the way. All ably provided by Rib Ride and our skipper Sean. We saw seals, porpoises and seabirds with good identification and information about them. We did not see puffins as there aren't many left - need to go on the trip to find out why. Everyone enjoyed and... More

Even though it was pouring with rain we had a great time. Professional skipper who new what he was doing with the boat and also had very good local knowledge making the trip informative as well as fun. Take sunglasses to protect your eyes if its windy, the salt spray can be quite intense!

We have done rib rides all over British Isles and further afield, but this beats most. Excellent and informative crew. Really helpful when first trip didn't take place. Chose a great day for trip. Saw loads of seals and wild life on Skerries, South Stack, and North Stack. We will definitely come again to do a different trip

Excellent experience! Will return for one of the other routes on offer. A special birthday treat from my family. Although lived on anglesey all my life I could appreciate a different outlook. Very informative and enjoyable although the weather was wet and windy,it didn't spoil the experience at all! Would wear waterproof leggins next time as my bottom got wet,... More
