We booked a private trip for the family (2 adults and 3 children) for 1.5hr which was great value for money. Excellent communication from first enquiring over Facebook, to discussing over the phone. Really impressed with the flexibility too, as a few days before the weather changed and so we got to go a day earlier. Also with the weather... More

Fabulous trip! As everybody has already said, this really is fun! Our skipper was Charles, a very experienced and qualified guide and sailor, who worked hard to ensure everyone enjoyed and got the most out of their ride. We had full confidence in him and the boat. It is essential to wrap up warm, even on mild days, as the... More

We had a great trip with a fantastic captain. He got the right changes between speed and pauses. We saw lots of seals around puffin island.

Charles the tour guide was great and is absolutely passionate about what he does. He's an incredible pilot also! Did the rib ride with my girlfriend in November even if it was a little bit cold( dress warm) the experience was great!

Tom took us out on a cold and miserable day but it was still the most fun I've had in ages! There was the obvious high speed fun but also history, wildlife and general information about the area. I'm already planning to return for one of the longer tours in May when we return to Anglesey.

Went on a chilly, miserable November day but this did not detract at all from the enjoyment. An hour of a mixture of high speed thrills and sightseeing with information given by skipper Tom. Had a great time and would recommend it to anyone visiting the area. We'll certainly be back on our next visit.
