The Menai Strait and surrounding sea is one of the most sheltered yet challenging coastal environments in the UK. Our knowledgeable Skippers and new RIBs will help bring success to your party, training or filming. Book RibRide, we guarantee the highest level of service afloat. A Blue Flag Award, Sustainable Boat Tour Operator.
At RibRide we offer tours by the seat, but it makes much more sense for families and groups to charter a whole boat. This can be for one hour, two hours, half a day or a whole day.
It allows you flexibility; you can choose a start time, destination and itinerary. You may want to have a one-to-one tour, a romantic tour-for-two or bring the family, we have the RIB and a friendly Skipper to take you on an adventure.

Create a special birthday memory with a RibRide children’s party boat tour.
As parents we have seen enough wasted party food and soft-play tantrums to know that it’s not easy hosting a kid’s party. It’s a special birthday treat; we go on a suitable adventure with spins, thrills and waves all rolled into one.
All groups need a parent to supervise the party and while we take children from 4 years old, we suggest that over 6 years would be a more suitable age.
Working with organised groups: schools, colleges, Scouts, Guides, WI and Round Table etc. offers us a fantastic opportunity to inspire people and create an understanding and empathy with the stunning coastline of Anglesey and North Wales. From inspiring introductions to RIB boats, the environment of the Strait and integration with educational programmes, we can tailor an experience to create a fantastic and memorable event.

Why not try something a bit different on one of our sleek, modern and stylish RIBs? We take your Hen or Stag party on an adventure not to forget.
Whether a James Bond themed trip up the Straits, going through the Bridges and ending with Martinis (shaken not stirred) or a Champagne toast on a remote beach, we tailor your trips to whatever you want. It’s a great bonding experience for a wedding party – let’s face it, being tied naked to a lamppost isn’t fun for anyone.

Getting married in North Wales? A RibRide might add even more wonderful memories to your special day.
Arrive by RIB and for those tying the knot at a waterfront location (like Chateau Rhianfa), we can bring you gently drifting into the shore. Transport the Groom, Best Men and Bridesmaids to the reception.
Grab some Champagne and we’ll take you out to Llanddwyn Island. Here, under the watchful eye of the Welsh Patron Saint of Lovers, you can toast the happy couple and dine on the beach with the sand between your toes.
Champagne celebration cheers, wedding wine and dine, wedding breakfast and wedding transport.
We receive a couple of request a year to provide a RIB boat to scatter ashes in local rivers and the sea. Individual ceremonies to spread ashes are unlikely to pollute the water. Ashes themselves have little impact on water quality, but personal items and wreaths, which may contain plastic and metal parts, may cause harm to wildlife. You need to carry out the ceremony with care and we can help you with your plans.
Join us on a special team tour or a bespoke group adventure on one or more of our fast and safe RIBs. Simply choose the number of boats; each RIB can carry up to 11 passengers. Decide where you want to have your adventure, a one-hour tour of Menai Strait highlights or go around Anglesey in a day, and we will take you on an unforgettable team adventure.
