Hen Parties and Boat Selfies & Powerboat Racing

Been a busy few weeks at Lyme Bay RIB Charter partly due to the glorious weather, sunshine and ideal northerly winds!

The Jurassic Coast is looking its splendid best again.

No signs of the dolphins inshore as yet but fingers crossed they’ll make an appearance soon…

One or two cool additions around the Harbour at West Bay during the last few weeks which are really helping to cheer the place up!

Mark Cornwell, skipper of Sea Seeker trawled up this huge anchor and kindly donated it to the harbour which you find on the roundabout and John from River Brit Rowing Boats has been busy repairing these old dinghies and giving them a new lease of life as well as brightening up the harbour pavements by turning them into flower beds!

Good work chaps!

The RIBs have been busy with a good start to the Water Taxi service and some really good fun Hen Parties chartering…

Weekend 28th & 29th June saw the National Raceboat Championship and National Zapcat Championship leg held in West Bay.

This was the 2nd year the event was held here and the weather was kind!

Racing happened on both days and we were lucky enough to get some cracking photos which we’ve posted in a Facebook Album here

Plenty of pictures of all of our daily shenanigans on our Facebook page which is the best and quickest place to see what we’re up to!

head over here to see all the fun….

We ask passengers to arrive 15 minutes before departure, for check in, kit-up and a safety brief. If you arrive earlier you will not yet have access to the pontoon because of social distancing measures.

We will be using contactless IR thermometers to screen all employees prior to the start of their workday.

All of our crew will be wearing face coverings at all times. We will supply PPE to all of our crew at the start of each day and will also have a spare supply onboard our vessels.

Groups of up to 11 passengers from the same household can hire the boat for their own private use and we are happy to discuss bespoke requests / transfers.
