My wife booked this for my birthday and it didn't disappoint. The skipper Charles was very knowledgeable and funny with it (credit to the business). The weather was horrendous, however, it didn't matter one bit. Will be back in the summer for another adventure.

The best way to take in the undisturbed shoreline of the Strait. An informative and fun tour at a low cost was a good way to spend an hour.

Booking the Rib Ride is a must if anyone is visiting Anglesey! Although it was a cold February afternoon, my wife and I together with our 10 and 8 year old were well prepared as advised on the booking section of the website. We arrived in ample time to find parking and use the facilities before heading off to the... More

We didn't have the best of weather for our trip - cold and rain - with the speed of the boat the raindrops really... More

5 mature adults! 1 frightened to death and dreading it! It was a drizzly cold march day with calm water and good visibility! We were lucky for this time of year. Matt was a great tour guide, knew his stuff, very confident and competent. He told us not only about the straights and did some tricks with the boat but... More

There is no better way to spend a glorious afternoon on St David's Day then to power along the Menai Straits taking in the beauty of the location, the magnitude of the architecture and the grace of nature. With Charles at the helm we were treated to a wealth of information on the history of the area, the wildlife and... More
