About
This is the longest boat trip we do. We will leave Torquay Marina and head out into the bay. Dependant on the weather we will either turn left or right but with way we will hug the coast. Along our route we will explore coves, caves and rock islands as we admire the geology of the UNESCO Geopark and look out for wildlife. We hope to see seals, dolphins + porpoise as well as an array of sea birds including our Guillemot colony (March - August). We will take in the whole bay and weather dependant extend further down the coast enhancing our changes of spotting more wildlife. Wildlife is not guaranteed but we will do our very best to find them !! We will also have some fun at speed and a few donuts !! This is truly a great way to get out on the water. Our experienced guides have lots of local information and are so passionate about our local area and wildlife. So book with us today and create some special memories.

      ABSOLUTE THRILL! MUST BOOK!
      ABSOLUTE THRILL!!! I have been before about 4 times now. I travelled all the way from London especially for the RAPTOR!! We reached 71mph on the water. UK’s fastest speedboat did not disappoint as usual! The F1 car of the sea! Staff were incredible, I accidentally booked for the wrong day and they changed it for me, excellent customer service. Hopefully see you soon in the future too!

      Great fun and a brilliant experience.
      We did the rib one hour coastal tour, John was great, he made sure everyone was safe and happy at all times, he took his time to answer questions and explained about different areas and wildlife we saw. There was only 4 of us so we went on the smaller rib. It was fast and soo much fun, can't wait to go again.

      A fun activity for everyone!
      Very easy to book online. Staff at check in were friendly. Then we met our skipper, Greg. He was friendly and very knowledgeable of the local area and the history and wildlife. A really fun trip with a bit of everything, going fast over the waves and seeing the wildlife. We saw birds, seals and dolphins. This is our 5th time doing a ribride trip but our first doing an hour one and I would definitely recommend.

      Highly recommended as one of the Bays best experiences.
      Absolutely fantastic. Was a little worried it would be bumpy and uncomfortable but was surprisingly smooth with just the adrenaline of the speed. The little stops to get closer looks at Thatchers and Orestone Rock and Londons Bridge rock was really fascinating and fabulous to see the rare wildlife. Even had a seal swim over to us while we were stopped. Very friendly crew and loved the commentary and little jokes. Great to have some music on too. Will be booking the slightly slower one next time as its longer to enjoy as was all too quick :) one very tiny negative with £40 each the booking fee wasn't mentioned till was about to pay. Only £2 but would think after paying quite a substantial amount that could be included. Highly recommended and will be back.

      5 stars!!
      Absolutely incredible - highly recommend. - We saw so many dolphins it was amazing. We went on the afternoon session and just so happened the sun came out and after no sightings for days we could not believe our luck. The kids couldnt stop smiling and we made core memories - so much fun.

      Raptor visit
      Third time on Raptor and wow did not disappoint! We went out on a gorgeous calm day and the water was stunning. We saw lots of wildlife along the coast and then sped up in full Raptor style over the bay. We were lucky enough to time it with the airshow and saw the spitfires flying over us towards Paignton. What an experience - it’s a different one every time do it made our holiday complete. Thank you Paul and team

      Terrible customer service.
      This was the most terrible experience I’ve ever had with a service provider on Trip Advisor. They were rude, completely inflexible, and even slightly aggressive. Due to transport delays that were outside of our control, we contacted them in advance to ask if it was possible to take the later boat, as there was another option 2 hours later (which we could see still had enough spaces). They outright refused, didnt offer us any compensation at all, didnt offer a discount on another trip. They completely disregarded out situation, were aggressive, offensive, and essentially took our £220 and didn’t allow us to board any of the options. In general, the overall customer service was the worst I’ve ever experienced.

      Fun and informative coastal trip
      Informative, fun and we saw a seal and a porpoise! We learnt about the history of Torbay, the best beaches to visit and saw some great local wildlife whilst jetting around the bay.

      Brilliant and exhilarating experience!
      The staff were so welcoming, friendly and funny. I was a little nervous but soon felt at ease. The boat was so powerful, the ride was amazing and exhilarating.

      The most fun ive had in torquey
      Ive been on similar boats around the UK and abroad but my girlfriend had never been on a boat before. This was much faster than any other boats ive been on and so much fun. My girlfriend doesn’t do speed, but she enjoyed it too. We got off and she wanted to get straight back on! The staff made it really fun too - they must have the best job in the world, ragging the RIB about all day! 2 happy customers

    Living here 8 years and have promised the kids we’d do a coastal explorer boat trip. Totally worth the wait! Brilliant time. Exceeded expectations! Saw 6 beautiful seals.
    Thank you John.
