Bridges and Swellies RIB Tour from Menai Bridge
US$ 32.11
Overview

Your skippers are your fast and fun guides to the natural beauty and history of the Menai Strait in North Wales. Explore the bridges, history, islands, nature, pier, shipwrecks, stately homes, statues and whirlpools on this 1-hour RIB speedboat tour from Menai Bridge.

What to Expect
Going under Thomas Telford’s Menai Suspension Bridge, past Church Island with its fifteenth-century St Tysilio’s church. You will then enter the infamous Swellies, with its shipwrecks, rocks and whirlpools. You whip under the Britannia Bridge to spot the Lions and salute Lord Nelson’s statue.

After viewing Plas Newydd, you return to Menai Bridge and on to see some of the amazing homes known locally as ‘Millionaires Row’. After passing Garth Pier, the second-longest pier in Wales, at Bangor, you turn to zip back to Menai Bridge.

This is an exciting open water tour on a fast but comfortable RIB. Lifejackets are provided. Dress for temperatures 5-7 degrees lower than those on the day. Though not required, splash-proof clothing may help on windier days.
