RIB RIDES TRIPS
A fun, high adrenaline ride making full use of our rib’s 450 horsepower engines.
We can cater for all sorts of bespoke trips for bird watchers, geologists or those wanting to spoil their loved ones with a special gift. The boat can be chartered for £240 per hour. Just contact us to discuss.
Sit back and relax as we cruise at a leisurely pace up the coastline exploring its nooks and crannies. We can open her up a little bit if everyone is happy to experience the wind in the hair.
The boat is a 10m Humber rib. Humbers provide the driest, safest and most stable ride of any comparable craft. Skippers Paul and Graeme were born and brought up in St Abbs and are both skippers of St Abbs lifeboat. They know the coast and its waters like the back of their hands.
PRICES: Adult £25, Children 14 and under £20
The trip is suitable for children at the parent’s discretion.
