Spent a very enjoyable hour with informative and caring hosts from Island Rib Voyages. We did the Sark & Caves tour, which was great. Wrap up warm though as it’s pretty chilly in the middle of the sea!

Glad you had a good time with our Caves Experience. It takes a lot of skill to get the boat inside the caves with inches to spare but it's worth it for the experience!

This trip was amazingly organised and was a great historic and factual trip. Anyone can go from couples to families and the boat seats 12 people. You have to be good with boats because they do some tricks, but the trip is definitely worth everything!...More
