“Archipelago boat tour with Rib Sightseeing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Excellent! A tour and a mild adrenaline trip all in one!

You get to see quite a bit of the coast of the archipelago around Stockholm, but as the rib boats are fast you cover a lot of ground in the time.

On the way back to the city there's also a section up one of the rivers/canals.

It's an interesting and fun ride!

“The silent mariners”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

If you are pushed on time and have the budget then this is a great way to see the archipelago and the beautiful houses dotted around the hills and islands. You are unlikely to get wet and have little chance of being thrilled and you certainly will not learn anything beyond what you already know about the area. The 'Captain' climbs aboard, starts the engines and you're off. Not a hint of interaction, a welcome, anything. You are handed a laminated map of the route and have to interpret things as best you can. It is a stretch to call it a 90 minute ride, particularly when your speed is limited in and out of the main port. This is a missed opportunity from the boat company to enhance the experience and make it something people will remember and talk about, but then maybe they do not want it to be more than a boat ride.

“RIB-Boat adventurous way to experience Stockholm and the archipelago”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2009

a great way to sightsee and visit the beautiful archipelagos around Stockholm... on a high speed Rigid Inflatable Boat! You get suited up in wet-proof suits and sit in a RIB-boat with at least six other people in one boat. It's not a leisure, scenic cruise because you definitely get to ride some waves. But it's also not
river rafting. so much fun, gotta try it at least once!
