This was a great thing to do. Exhilarating and bumpy to say the least. Staff were very friendly and our captain was very pleasant. Me and hubby were on honeymoon when we did this and it was excellent. Saw some wildlife on puffin island too. Would highly recommend

We hired 2 ribs for my husbands birthday. So glad we did, what a fantastic experience, didn't want it to end. Our skippers were friendly and informative and made the experience even more enjoyable. Our ages ranged from 4-60! A great time had by all, and a wonderful memory made. Cannot stop talking about it! Highly recommended. Will certainly try... More

9 of us went out aged 8 - 80 and all thoroughly enjoyed it. Alan was a great skipper and very knowledgeable on the area. Great service from initially booking the trip through to the rede on the day. Highly recommended. It was a lovely bright day, however cold on the water - wear a hat !!!

Had a great trip down the straights on a sunny Autumn day with 5 friends to celebrate a 60th birthday. Charles the skipper was good company and very informative about the history of the Menai and having driven to Anglesey hundreds of times it is great to see the area from the water. The boat is fantastic with a 350... More
