Climb aboard an incredible Powerboat for an exhilarating and unforgettable blast across to the Isle-of-Wight! You’ll experience 60 minutes of pure excitement as your powerful RIB-craft is piloted by an experienced professional around the beautiful Napoleonic Forts of the Solent. Your heart will race as you leap across the waves, reaching speeds of up to 50 mph and flying past passing ferries and ships. An amazing RIB adventure!
Arrive at the kiosk at least 15 minutes before the appointed time for a safety briefing and to collect your life jacket and waterproofs. You’ll climb aboard a 25ft high speed powerboat (RIB) for an exhilarating blast across the Solent to the Isle-of-Wight. Your experienced skipper will guarantee you a fantastic time in your 60 minutes of adrenaline-filled boating action.
The trip departs from Gunwharf Quays for a brief tour of historic Portsmouth Harbour, after which you’ll exit the harbour and the exciting vessel will accelerate up to speeds of 50mph! You will get a unique and close up view of the forts, as you pass en-route to the Isle-of-Wight and a brief tour of Bembridge harbour (tide permiting) before skimming back across the waves to Portsmouth and Gunwharf Quays.

60 Minute Portsmouth and Isle of Wight RIB Blast
Wish I'd done this sooner !!!
Put this off for sometime until my son pestered me into it - Brilliant !!!!!
All three of us loved it and even the wife had an ear to ear grin :-)
I can only say that you have to get on and try it - Its the best way of spending an hour that I've ever found and worth double the price. We saw things on the Solent that we never knew exsisted and the staff couldn't be more helpful. The skipper was exceedingly competent, yet made us feel completely safe (even my wife ! ) Dont hesitate - go for it !
We will be back for more this coming year without a doubt
