A brilliant trip along the coast, combining history to interest the adults and high speed RIB riding to entertain the kids (and the kid still in every adult!)

Absolute brilliant trip. Our host James has a mind full of local knowledge. I booked this for my partners birthday, and he loved it. Saw loads of seals. Weather was perfect.

Brilliant experience with Dave and Don. Wet wheels boat was comfortable and super fast. Views of the cliffs and coastline were obviously top notch as were the seals in the estuary. Will definitely be coming again!
