Did the 50 minute cruise yesterday. It was great fun zooming across the water with perfect weather conditions. Our captain was very knowledgeable about the coast and its history. The trip back was fast and furious with some fun RIB twists and turns.

Trip lasted over an hour so well worth the price of only £20. Nice viewing and weather was perfect. Exciting end to the trip with a few doughnuts on the rib thrown in to make sure we were all awake lol

Mine are now grown but I'd have taken my young lad on this boat. The crew were very friendly, professional and safety conscious. We did the longer sight seeing ride. Maybe consider that if you're not sure - it's still a... More
