In Brief

  • Before you set off you will be fitted into your life jacket and waterproof clothing and given a safety briefing.
  • You will then depart from Gunwharf Quays, taking in the ships and harbour as you cruise through.
  • After leaving the harbour the throttle will be opened as you head to the Solent for 45 minutes of adrenalin filled fun, reaching speeds of up to 50 mph!

What happens on the day?

Have you ever felt like you were flying while travelling on a boat? Well it is very much possible with this RIB-craft experience. Some might say that this is like rally driving on water. This obviously means that this experience is extreme and extremely fun.

The speed powerboat will take you for a 45-minute ride around the Solent. This is not a typical boat ride meant for you to enjoy the scenery. This is meant for you to get adrenaline rushes on every wave and turn. Extreme sensations on a boat are very unusual and you will get addicted to this wild sport.

Of course, you will have the time to admire the harbour and discover historic ships, like the HMS Victory or the HMS Warrior. However, be prepared to cling to your seat as soon as you exit the harbour. You will reach speeds of up to 50mph and the boat will not be floating any more, it will be jumping from wave to wave and flying on water.

You might need a small break from this sensation packed experience, so you will have the opportunity to relax a little with the discovery of the forts and the impressive sights of the bigger ships and ferries cruising so slowly next to you.

AWESOME!Review by JONNN, Surrey
Loved the tour around the dockyard, and I thought the instructors were very professional and friendly with their safety briefing. The weather was beautiful on the day we booked which was the icing on the cake to such an unforgettable day. Thank you.

Fantastic adrenaline thrill!Review by CJ24, London
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!

Only 40 minutes long, but jam packed with thrills! I was amazed at how fast the RIB could go and soon we were shooting across the waves! It was one of the most exhilirating things I have ever done and has opened my eyes to the world of extreme water sports! :D

Awesome fun for any ageReview by Cloudfree-Horizons, Kent
I have taken part in sailing and yachting experience days before but this was something totally different! Not for the faint hearted, this was an adrenaline rush from the second we set off til we got back. 40 minutes of heart pounding action which I would recommend to all!

Amazing FunReview by Lal666, West Sussex
The staff on our day were exceptional. The confidence and skill with which they directed us and controlled the boat instilled confidence and made sure everyone felt safe and secure at all times. A fun day for all involved.

What a Ride!Review by ilovetoparty, .
I was very impressed by the sheer amount of knowledge the staff had about powerboats! I felt like I was in safe hands, and that these people genuinely loved their jobs. And I could see why! As soon as we set off it was an immense thrill, bouncing across the waves and taking in such an idyllic setting. Will be booking another session for the rest of the family again soon.

Fantastic FunReview by funfamily, brentwood essex
I had never even heard of a RIB before but my husband booked this day as a unique anniversary gift so I thought, why not give it a try? I was not disappointed! The staff were very informative and competent, and the rush was better thn any rollercoaster I've ever been on! Roll on next anniversary! Maybe bungee jumping? :P

40 minute RIB blastReview by Les Neil, Camberley, Surrey
This was one of the best things I have ever done.My son bought me this experience as a present. Booking was easy. We both boarded the RIB expecting a nice steady but fast ride out to the Solent. As soon as we left harbour, the driver opened up the throttles and it was extreme from then on. After out-accelerating some expensive looking boats, we proceeded to chase the Isle of White car ferries, bouncing off their wake and flying across their stern. We then proceded to play 'chicken' with the forts in the Solent-racing towards them and turning at last minute. Exhilerating to say the least and arms and legs ached from hanging on for a good one hour of high speed fun. We intend to go back as a family of six and do it again. Well worth money and much better value than car track days.
