It's time to hop aboard one of these exhilarating inflatable craft and hold on for a heart-pounding wet and wild experience. Enjoy forty minutes of pure excitement as your RIB-craft is piloted by an experienced professional around the Napoleonic Forts of the Solent. You'll be delighted as you leap across the waves, reaching speeds of up to 50 mph and flying past passing ferries and ships.
Arrive at the dock at least 15 minutes before the appointed time for a safety briefing and to collect your life jacket and waterproof gear. You will climb aboard a 29ft high speed powerboat (RIB) for a white-knuckle blast around the Solent. Your experienced skipper will guarantee you a fantastic time in your 40 minutes of adrenaline-filled boating action.

The trip departs from Gunwharf Quays for a short tour around the harbour and the historic ships including HMS Victory and HMS Warrior. After exiting the harbour the throttle of one of the 10 seater speed machines will be opened up, and you'll experience speeds of up to 50mph. You will get a unique and close up view of the forts, as well as the adrenaline pumping sensation of the boat flying across the waves from passing ferries and ships.

AWESOME! Professional,friendly safety briefing,tour around the dockyard then hit the throttle out to the forts sat at the back of the rib got soaked but well worth it, 2nd time out will definately come again! 19 August 2012
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! 16 April 2012
