Award-winning Activities and Experiences for YOU!

Lyme Bay RIB Charter, West Bay Harbour, Dorset

Lyme Bay RIB Charter 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 April 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

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!

NOTE: All of our quayside trips require a minimum of 6 seats sold to run (or the cost cover of 6). 

Please try to join ‘part-filled’ trips first to help ensure trips run.


The minimum age we are permitted to take on ANY trip is 5 years providing the sea state is flat calm. This age and/or minimum height will be raised as the sea state/wave height increases. This is for your safety and comfort whilst on board the RIBS. Skipper and Quay Staff have the right to increase and decrease (back to 5y/o)  this age/height at anytime as dictated by the sea conditions which can vary throughout the day.

Please also be aware that the sea state may dictate the upper age of our passengers too! LBRC staff will, to their best, notify you if this may affect your booking but suggest you call or text to confirm if it is predicted to be windy on the day of your trip.
