What is a RIB?
RIB stands for Rigid-hulled Inflatable Boat.
Rigid-hulled inflatable boats (RIB) are often used by first responders and Navy SEALS because of their safety, maneuverability, and lightness resulting in some very high speeds. Be ready for an adrenaline rush. Rough waters are no match for this high-performance boat!
A RIB combines the stability and safety of a rigid hull with the flexibility and agility of an inflatable upper portion. The boat has a maximum capacity of 16 passengers per ride. This intimate setting allows our experienced crew to interact with a small group of riders and give them the experience of a lifetime.
Our seats are designed for both safety and comfort. Passengers sit facing the vertical support.

Is it safe?
Our Rib has been developed for professional first responders and critical navy missions at heavy seas. We put safety first without compromise. It is important to stay seated, hold on, and follow the safety instructions. This is the safest thrill ride with speeds reaching 50 miles an hour you can get.
What is the minimum age?
- Age is not the main criteria for participation. The minimum height for participation is 54 inches (137 cm).
- Participants under 16 years of age will need to be accompanied by an adult
What can I bring with me?
- In every participant’s seat there is a small watertight storage space that can hold a small backpack or a handbag. Anything bigger should be left on shore.
- Due to the high speeds there is a risk of things getting blown off the boat, both things stored on the floor and things on the body, such as hats and (sun) glasses. We are not responsible for loss of items during the trip.
