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.

What a Ride!

Age: 35-44
Bought by: Myself
Occasion: Just because!
I bought this gift as a Christmas present for some friends and myself. The booking staff and skippers were really friendly and knowledgeable. We were provided with splash jackets and of course life jackets. The ride itself was awsome even for the grown men in our party! You may get wet (in some cases very wet) and take a hairbrush with you - my hair has never been to tangled! We all said we would do it again given the chance and are looking into taking a longer trip.

(family of 6 ) no hassle at reception ,a short safety talk then straight onto the rib.
"seats" look strange, like a padded saddle but strangely comfortable and you feel secure. A short trip across the river seeing the sights as you turn out towards the sea then WOW 3.5 litre of v6 outboard blasts you over the waves.Its amazing how quickly you cover distances. we went out with another rib and the "captain" makes the most of the wakes left by it and any passing ferry etc sometimes literally flying . due to good seat padding and the speed it remains surprisingly smooth but VERY invigorating.On return its a universal AGAIN, AGAIN, AGAIN.
