Boat trip with a difference and an October with a difference

Fri 13th November 2015

It has been an amazing autumn and we have received some amazing reviews on TripAdvisor:

“Boat trip with a difference…What do you get if you cross a boat trip, an adrenalin fuelled high speed ride out to sea, a wildlife show and an informative guide? a Rib Ride trip to Puffin Island, that’s what!
An hour and a half of pure enjoyment and the most fun I’ve had with my clothes on in years! The Seals showed up just to tease us and there were masses of Cormorants, or ‘Shags’ as they’re more commonly known (there’s a joke in there somewhere!) and if you visit at the right time of year, you’ll even see a Puffin or two. I had a blast and this was easily our son’s favourite trip of the week,” honeyImhome61, Greater Manchester, 2 November 2015.

In addition to our fantastic RIB Riders enthusiasm, we have also been encouraged by the rise in the number of folk coming for an adventure, a rise of 100% from our October 2014 figures to October 2015.
In October we went to the Bridges, Puffin Island and beautiful Llandwyn Island with RIB Riders aged from 5 to over 80 years young.

“Bent over backwards and blew us away!…After much deliberation we decided to investigate a Rib Ride as part of a Diamond Wedding Anniversary celebration. So four intrepid explorers, one ‘stay by the fire’ and three who had their doubts…(including two in their eighties!) descended on Porth Daniel Boatyard.
The staff couldn’t have been more welcoming and reassuring. Soon we were all kitted up and set course with Charles who was very attentive to all his charges! He was a font of knowledge on the Menai Straits and of course the boat!
We all had a fabulous time. Lots of spins and turns, laughter and fun. We’ll be back!

The weather this autumn was perfect and we are so glad we could make so many days perfect for our RIB Riders.

“Fantastic experience…We had a perfect day today for our rib ride with Tom at the helm. Our family of four all thoroughly enjoyed this fun experience, and Tom’s enthusiasm and knowledge of the area made it all the more enjoyable. Would totally recommend this for a family activity for anyone in the area – brilliant fun too 🙂 Thank you !!
