Here at Lyme Bay RIB Charter, we have repeatedly won Gold for ‘Best Activity, Experience’ at the Dorset Tourism Awards for our Quayside trips!

Come and see why for yourself…

These trips run from the quayside in West Bay from Easter until the end of the October.

Our trip times shown are the time YOU GET AT SEA, this DOES NOT include loading, unloading, stowing your kit or receiving your safety brief. So, our 1/4hr RIB Blast is exactly that – time at sea



RIB Blast!
RIB Blast!

It’s a FULL quarter hour charging around at sea playing in the waves.

Our 1/2hr Coastal cruise is a FULL 30 mins at sea taking in the stunning coastline.

You must remember to add at least another 1/4hr to these times for the extras.

We believe this makes our quayside trips the best value for money around at £15pp!
