Caernarfon Adventure

See Caernarfon Castle from a new perspective, on this fantastic journey along the Menai Strait.

There is so much to see along the Menai Strait and this Adventure RIB tour takes in the south western end. Experience the fascinating Swellies, with its whirlpools and tidal flows and enjoy majestic views of Plas Newydd, the elegant 18th century home of the Marquess of Anglesey.

After Plas Newydd, the picturesque village of Y Felinheli comes into sight, where the dock was once a thriving port exporting slate around the world from the nearby slate quarries of Dinorwig in Snowdonia/Eryri.

As you head towards Caernarfon Castle with the spectacular Eryri mountain range as your backdrop, your Skipper will keep you entertained with various stories (all of which are true!) along the way.

This tour is on board one of our fleet of Adventure RIBs. These RIBS take up to a maximum of 11 passengers and can go up to 35knots (approx. 40mph).
