What to wear?

Dress in readiness for temperatures 5-7 degrees lower than on the day, which means that gloves, hats, and multiple layers etc on cooler days are essential.

We will be issuing riders with a Velocity flight suit; we request skirts and dresses are avoided to allow these to be worn. Though splash-proof, the coverall is large enough to allow for a waterproof layer to be worn underneath on rainy days (we assume that most people coming to North wales will be prepared with such items).

We will provide a flight suit and eye protection.
Sensible shoes please!
We provide life jackets which are mandatory.

What to bring?

Please leave all bags in your car.*

Velocity riders can travel with cards, money, phone, car keys in a secure pocket. Nothing can be held in your hands during the experience. Small shoulder bags can be worn as long as they fit under clothing. Once dressed for the experience you will have limited access to your pockets.

*Those visiting us via public transport can store bags in our office though please note this is not secure.

Is there an age restriction?

The minimum age to ride Velocity 10 years-old.
One adult for every three young people 10-18.

One ticket price only (no young person price).

Ability and access

RibRide is happy to welcome all riders of any ability. You will need to:

  • Walk 260 meters from our Bookings Office to the pontoon at St George’s Pier
    (The pier is like bridge, which is high above the water and sloping at low tide)
  • Climb down 3 steps on a short step ladder
  • Then make 1 largish step onto the RIB
  • Hold on to the chrome handholds for the duration of the trip

However, boat tours are a physical activity. If you have any medical concerns please contact our office, 0333 1234 303, for advice.

Can I take photos?

Yes, when the RIB is near the pontoon/pier. When the RIB sets off at speed you must have placed your phone securely in your pockets. We cannot allow cameras to be worn around the neck or items to be hand-held. You are welcome to wear GoPro type camera’s which are firmly secured.

Your Velocity Skipper will try and capture photos with our on-board camera. This is a fun, additional service and cannot be guaranteed. Mostly the cameras work smoothly but they can run out of charge, only catch certain members of a group or malfunction.
