Explorer RibRides

Last trip Sun 14 July 19 – Then we are back at Holyhead Marina summer 2020

Anglesey is the most beautiful and exciting place to go for a RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) adventure. To the North West of Anglesey there is a unique group of rocky islands called the ‘Skerries’ and you can travel to ‘Gogarth’ Bay from North Stack and to the RSPB South Stack Cliffs nature reserve where you can look up at some of the highest sea cliffs in Wales.

During the summer months we take on the challenging environment of the Irish Sea. The RIB has already been tested in extreme Arctic environments by the famous adventurer Bear Grylls, so it is perfect to take you on an adventure boat tour. We worked in partnership to create the Bear Grylls ‘BG RibRide Adventure Boat Tours’ then from 2017 these trips were renamed ‘RibRide Explorer’.

RibRide Explorer

There are two scheduled ‘RibRide Explorer’ trips:

  • Skerries – Islands, South Stack and Sea
  • Gogarth – Cliffs, Sea Birds and Caves

You will need a sense of adventure for both trips. Our skippers are your fast and fun adventure guides to the dramatic unique landscape and the open sea, and you will spot spectacular sea birds.

The ‘RibRide Explorer’ is also available to book for special occasions, wedding parties, birthday parties, work colleagues and family groups. Talk to us and you can ‘BOOK THE WHOLE BOAT’ or go to our private charter website to book a trip for one or with your friends and family RibRide from Holyhead the first hour is £300, while subsequent hours are great value at £250.

Hidden coastline

Our unbeatable advantage is that we are based in one of the best locations in the UK for adventure boat tours. Our aim is to have fun in the outdoors and we can show you the hidden secrets of the North Wales coastline.
