After checking in at the RIbRide office and making your way to St George’s Pier you will be met by your Skipper and given a short safety briefing. Life jackets will be fitted before you head down onto the pontoon and aboard your RIB. As you settle into your seat, remember to hold on tight as you depart and the speed picks up.
During this journey you will travel nearly two thirds the length of the Menai Strait, with plenty to see and discover. The area is rich in culture, history, legend and wildlife and your skipper will be your fun guide to it all. But rest assured, this is no gentle cruise. Our Adventure RIBs can reach speeds of up to 45knots, so be prepared for lots of high speed thrills along the way.
You will pass through the infamous Swellies, with its rocks, whirlpools and shipwrecks, pass beneath the two majestic bridges connecting Anglesey to mainland Wales, and then on to see Lord Nelson and Plas Newydd. You’ll fly by the historic village of Felinheli, the National Outdoor Centre for Wales and on towards the town of Caernarfon with its imposing medieval Castle. Fort Belan stands at the western approach to the Menai Strait and once over Caernarfon bar, you will bear right the beautiful sand dunes of Newborough Warren before arriving at Pilots Cove, LLanddwyn Island. It is here in the fifth century that St Dwynwen, the Welsh patron saint of friendship and love, founded a convent on the island. A truly spectacular journey. Then it is time to head back and keep an eye out for anything you may have missed on the way out.
