Did the 50 minute cruise yesterday. It was great fun zooming across the water with perfect weather conditions. Our captain was very knowledgeable about the coast and its history. The trip back was fast and furious with some fun RIB twists and turns.

Trip lasted over an hour so well worth the price of only £20. Nice viewing and weather was perfect. Exciting end to the trip with a few doughnuts on the rib thrown in to make sure we were all awake lol

Went on this ride with my 12 year old son, really comprehensive safety talk before we left which was encouraging. Despite only a slight swell at sea the boat pilot made the trip thrilling, fast, bounced and exhilarating. I would definately recommend this great activity...More
