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.

Wow! what a great gift

Location: Ascot Age: 45-54 Bought For Wife Occasion: Christmas
The experience is great value for money. The boat left promptly and we got a full hour on the boat. It was a complete adrenaline rush but you felt safe at all times. The staff are all very polite. Great location and easy to find.
What would you improve for next time? Flexibility of booking could be better. Trips only held at weekends and when there are no other boat events on.

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! We ventured out as far as the Isle of Wight & passed many yachts & even ferries! Absolutely recommend... We want to go again!

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.

Location: Age: 45-54 Bought For Wife Occasion: Birthday
a hassle free experience at the desk, quickly on board and away. those boats really do have some grunt and after a gentle pootle around portsmouth harbour we blasted across the solent. getting to just over 40 knots - it felt fast. there was some nice tour guide moments on the way over to the isle of wight where we spun round (bembridge harbour) and headed back at speed. if it wasn't for the safety of some of the older passengers, i'm sure that he'd have been a little more daring as there were a couple of wow moments (such as leaping off the waves). but it was fun nonetheless.

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!
