For this ultimate RIB adventure, remember to dress appropriately as our RIB is open to the elements and we often go out in various weather conditions, including rain. It’s cooler on the water, so waterproof layers are advisable, and on colder days, hats and gloves are essential. Life jackets are mandatory and provided by us.

Please note that your safety and enjoyment are our top priorities. All tours are subject to change depending on sea state and weather conditions. Our skipper has the discretion to amend trips for passenger safety and enjoyment. You must be capable of climbing a ladder to board and disembark the boat. Tours are scheduled around the tide, and we will contact you if there’s a need to reschedule the start time.

Additionally, if you’re open to sharing your RIB tour with others to reduce costs, let us know! For instance, if two separate groups of two wish for a tour on the same day, we can combine them into one tour at half the price for each group. Please message the adventuro team in the live chat for support setting this up.
