Welcome to a package that mixes history, water, and speed to give you a ride you'll never forget. RIB's (Rigid Inflatable Boats) are known for their speed and their handling and you will experience this first hand on this adventure. You'll start with an introduction and safety briefing from your highly experienced captain. Then you'll board the 29ft powerboat and proceed on a short tour around the harbour, which will take you all around the historical boats such as HMS Victory and HMS Warrior as well as giving you incredible views of the Solent forts. Once you have left the harbour, they'll really open the engines up and you'll soon be skimming along the top of the waves at up to 50mph! Tight turns and wave jumps make this a real white-knuckle ride. With a whole 40 minutes on the water you will have a superb time.

I bought this experience for my husband's birthday & I went too. Was a thoroughly, exhilarating & fabulous experience.our driver Kevin was great & pointed out many points of interest along the way & then when he put the boat into full throttle well I cannot describe the feeling!

Location: Hampshire Age: 55-64 Bought For Son Occasion: Birthday
A fast fun ride around the Solent visiting the forts and speeding over the wake of other craft. Suitable for most ages, but avoid if you have back problems.
What would you improve for next time? Time of ride was changed by venue after booking (put back 30 minutes) without advance notice to us. Notification would have been appreciated.

Fantastic adrenaline thrill!

The rib blast is a great way to see the area of Portsmouth from a different angle and Kevin who runs the experience does a fantastic job of pointing out places of interest to look out for whilst at the same time taking you for an exhiliating blast which is better than going on a rollercoaster! My friend suffers from sea sickness and she was absolutley fine on the rib blast as it was going so fast, so I'd certainly recommend it to people who normally can't travel on boats. It was a great day out, very well organised, informative and the location is unbeatable. Plenty of restaurants, shops and cafes to explore before or after your trip, that's once you've come down from the adrenaline thrill of your life that is!

A Blasting Good Time

Location: Chichester, West Sussex Age: 25-34 Bought For Friend Occasion: Christmas
The 40 minutes Forts Blast Rib Ride experience I went on at Portsmouth was mind blowing, one of the best Christmas presents I have had and the experience of. It has left me on a massive high since, can't wait to do it again and take some friends along for the ride of their life! It is definitely something you have to do before you die, like visiting Las Vegas or going on the biggest rollercoaster you can find! Exhilarating white knuckle tour of Portsmouth’s historic dockyard and exploring the forts in the Solent and sunken wrecks like the Marry Rose brought history to life in a whole new way, through our experienced guide and Skipper. You can't have more fun with your clothes on! My friends who bought me the gift were a little worried that I wouldn't enjoy it, but their fears were soon dispelled when I appeared back on dry land with the biggest grin on my face! Situated at Gunwarf Quays, made it a great afternoon out. With plenty to do and look at for those who have just come along to watch.
Just about to set sail.

Location: Fareham Age: 35-44 Bought For Wife Occasion: Christmas
I received this as a Christmas gift and didn't realise what an adrenaline ride this would be! The guy in charge made sure that all the people on the RIB had an experience to remember, while reassuring others who were less confident. Thanks to all.

Absolutely Fantastic!

Location: Eastbourne, Sussex Age: 35-44 Bought For Sister Occasion: Birthday
Probably the most enjoyable 40 minutes I have spent - EVER! A gentle ride up to the Historic Dockyard and back to the entrance to the Harbour before.......Whoosh!...... the taps are opened and the acceleration is immense. Oh My Word! The speed, the exhilaration as the RIB skims across the water occasionally jumping across waves and wakes, but never feeling insecure even as you lean at 45 degrees as the Skipper pulls the craft into a tight turn. Tips. 1. Don't try photography or video unless the camera is a) splashproof and b) securely lashed to your wrist. 2. Take a hairbrush and 3. Completely ignore any apprehension you may have about boats, water or seasickness - you WILL forget these as soon as the boat leaves and you WILL thoroughly enjoy yourself. Would I recommend it? Absolutely. Will I be doing it again? Heck yes! A fantastic gift for anybody or a perfect treat for yourself. Do it!
