What a brilliant and beautiful ride we had. We went to llanddwyn along the menai straight's. The best experience I've had on a "speed boat"! Well worth a go.

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.

Booked after reading the reviews and wasn't disappointed. Brilliant hour on the Menai Straits- superb modern boat and an outstanding captain who has brilliant knowledge of the area and was also great fun. This was fantastic value for money and I would highly recommend it.

We did the Puffin island trip for one of my husband's 70th birthday surprises in October, following a previous trip 5 years ago when we went out in the opposite direction. This time there were just the two of us with Charles being our guide once again. We had a super time and would recommend the trips and our guide... More

We hired a private boat for 7 of us for 90 minute experience we wanted to get to Puffin Island but sadly the sea was very rough and we couldn't get there, our driver was amazing and we made a detour the other direction , we had a brilliant time and the trip was worth every penny, would certainly recommend...
