We are often asked what our season is. “We don’t have one!” is the answer because we never stop. We are lucky enough to have all tides and all weather (within reason!) access to one of the most exciting waterways in Europe.
The Swellies is a place respected by experienced navigators but understandably feared by the not so experienced. Nelson promised his junior officers that any cadet able to navigate the Strait would be ready for any seaway in the world, such are the challenges it can throw upon a sailor at a moments notice.
RibRide skippers can think of nothing better than a bit of inclement weather and a big tide to show the raw power of this awesome stretch of water. Even better to be able to enjoy it from beneath the shadows of such fine bridge engineering, a legless aristocrat and four very patient lions.
So if the forecast isn’t quite what you’d hoped for, all is not lost. Call RibRide, we’ll give you a reason to love challenging weather!
Ribride offer daily tours from our waterfront facility Menai Bridge. We also run from Beaumaris, Caernarfon and Holyhead during the main season. Join us aboard the biggest, newest and fastest fleet in Wales run by the original award winning RibRide company.
