Llanddwyn Explorer

Join us for an extended 2 hour 30 minute cruise onboard our brand new Explorer RIB. Take in the spectacular scenery as you travel along the Menai Strait out towards the magical Llanddwyn Island and beyond.

Along the way you will pass by Plas Newydd, the seat of the Marquis of Anglesey, the picturesque village of y Felinheli, the Welsh National Outdoor Centre, historic Caernarfon Castle and out towards Abermenai point and Fort Belan.

Conditions permitting you will head out the western entrance of the Menai Strait and around to the stunning Llanddwyn Island. The island, with it's golden sweep of Newborough beach, backed by the pine trees of Newborough warren is quite a view!

Time permitting you may well journey further along the western coastline of Anglesey before turning around and heading back.

Practical Information

Your safety and enjoyment are our top priority. Please be aware all tours are subject to change at short notice dependent upon sea state and weather conditions, so very occasionally it may not be possible to reach our final destination. In this case, all our skippers have complete discretion to amend any trip to ensure all passengers have a safe and highly enjoyable experience.

Prior to boarding, you will be kitted out with life jackets and given a short safety briefing.

Please ensure you check-in in plenty of time and arrive promptly at the Pier. RIBS must depart on time and refunds are not issued for latecomers.

Our EXPLORER RIB takes a maximum of 12 passengers.

We love our furry friends but unfortunately, we cannot take dogs onboard for safety reasons.

All tours are round trips and you will stay onboard for the duration of the trip. Please make sure you have used the RibRide facilities prior to joining us.


Our RIBs are open to the elements and we go out in most weathers including the rain, so please dress appropriately for the weather and season. It is always cooler on the water.

The aim is not to get you wet, however we cannot guarantee this, so please make sure you have a waterproof layer, as it can get a bit splashy in certain conditions. Sensible shoes, no heels! In the colder months, hats and gloves are essential. Sunglasses are also a good idea.

Life jackets are mandatory and are provided by RibRide.

Is it suitable for me?

If you are pregnant we generally advise against participating, as tours can be a bit bumpy in certain conditions. If you do want to go out, we would ask that you consult with your doctor or midwife beforehand and consider booking this as a private event so we can tailor the trip to better suit your situation and the weather conditions on the day.

During the tour you will be required to hold on at all times. If you have any concerns regarding to your suitability to participate, please read our access statement for more information or call the office on 0333 1234 303 to discuss your needs.
