RIB trips and boat cruises on the Menai Strait, North Wales

Ultimate RIB Safaris

Brand new addition in 2019 to the Seacoast Safaris fleet we’re massively excited to introduce our new Hybrid RIB, Black Scorpion. Measuring in at 10.4m and packing 700HP of supercharged power it’s the meanest machine to hit the Menai Strait. Pick your preferred route from a 40-minute Blast to the Ultimate 90-minute Safari.

Your skipper will choose the best route for the conditions on the day, the one-hour safari would normally include Puffin Island, Penmon Light and North Eastern stretches of the Menai Strait. The 90-minute Ultimate Safari will typically take you out of the Menai Strait to Puffin Island and either across Red Wharf Bay to Moelfre Island and the scene of the World Famous gold ship wreck of the Royal Charter or alternatively you may go east towards Conwy Bay and Great Orme Head with caves and wildlife aplenty. If conditions are perfect the trip may even run offshore outside of the six-mile limit in search of pelagic species. But don't worry if the weather’s not in our favour, we will still take you on a fascinating trip down almost the entire length of the Straits taking in things like the Bridges, Swillies and Caernarfon Castle (90-minute) or through the bridges and to Plas Newydd (60-minute). Wherever it takes you it’ll be a heck of a ride!

Measuring in at 10.4m Black Scorpion is a mean machine, there’s bags of space for 12 passengers and the tried and tested hull design has been used in the offshore industry out in challenging North Sea conditions. It’s a seriously capable boat with twin XXL 350HP supercharged Mercury Verados hanging off the back, get ready for full on adventure. Compared to other adventure experiences all our safaris offer exceptional value.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, RIB tours are not suitable for dogs. If you want to bring your dog please take a look at one of our cruises.

No, there is not a toilet on the RIBs.

The RIBs are open boats, while most people do stay dry it’s always best to prepare yourself for some spray, don’t bring anything you don’t need (especially expensive handbags…..) but if you do want to bring a camera we have got a small dry locker on the boat, but make sure you have a suitable case/bag.

You are welcome to bring your belongings on the boat, please make sure you have a suitable bag or case especially for cameras, any items you do bring on any of our boats are at your own risk, we will not take any responsibility should they get wet, damaged or broken.

You are welcome to bring your camera on the RIBs but make sure you have a suitable protective bag or case, it can be stowed in a locker until we stop at the island.

Any equipment you bring on the boats is at your own risk, we will not accept any responsibility for lost or damaged items.

RIB tours are not suitable for very young children, please contact us if you have children under 5 so we can try and tailor a trip to suit your group.

It is not advisable to take a RIB trip if you are pregnant.

Access is limited on the RIBs, you must be able to sit astride a jockey seat, hold onto handrails and follow the skipper's instructions to take a RIB trip. Please contact us if you wish to discuss your requirements prior to booking.

Our RIBs each have a license to carry 11 passengers (and 1 crew).

If you have a specific health problem that concerns you with regard to taking a boat trip then just let us know, but generally if you feel well enough to go it should be fine.

If you have back problems the RIB is probably not a good idea, a cruise is probably more suitable, also pick a calm day to go.

All our vessels fully conform to the MCA codes and licensing and carry all the necessary safety equipment. All vessels carry appropriately sized lifejackets and life rafts for all passengers.

Before boarding the RIBs you will be issued with a lifejacket which you must wear for the duration of your trip.

Absolutely loved our boat trip today, the staff was very knowledgeable, friendly and made the trip better, I really appreciate the way that he made sure everyone on the boat had the opportunity to see everything, I'd 100% go again.
