A wonderful way to see a different view of Durdle Door. Staff are friendly and helpful and the cost is reasonable. We really enjoyed our trip.

This is a fantastic value for money trip, if you can not get down to Durdle Door beach for whatever reason this is a must. I have gone with a group of friends twice and it is great fun. You need to queue on the beach and wait your turn (get there earlier in the day if possible), if there... More

You don't often get much for £6 in high season in an English coastal resort - we waited about half an hour for a RIB ride round from Lulworth Cove to Durdle Door and back again, and it was worth the wait. The ride is short - 12-15 mins (I think it was shorter because the driver was aware of... More

Fantastic opportunity to see Durdle Door from the sea and to take pictures of the Jurassic Coast , staff friendly , polite and courteous kept us informed of how long we would have to wait , I believe the young lady's name may have been Jemma. Some people in queue commented on price of the trip however I don't believe... More

This was a great boat ride. The kids absolutely loved the thrill. You sit in saddle style seats with a handle on the front like riding a horse and it lasts about 13 mins. We had our 3 year olds on our seats but still had to pay for them (they didn't use their seats though so presume its an... More

We paid £6 to ride the rib ride at Lulworth. The boat felt safe and was fun and comfortable to be on and it's a good trip for those wanting to get onto the water. The trip was very quick, about 15 minutes there and back. The coastal scenery was beautiful, however when we got to Durdle Door the skipper... More

Went on the Lulworth Cove rib ride with my partner. It was six pounds for around twelve minutes on the boat. It runs up the coast to Durdle Door and comes straight back, you get no time at all to properly take in the view and there is no commentary from the skipper. It's a fun diversion but nothing special.

Expensive for time on boat,10 mins but fun... No life jackets offered open to all ages but wouldn't take very young and not for disabled unless good on feet as access is via stoney beach /pontoon but I'm sure staff accommodate if assistance needed..

On a red hot, sunny day in June, my two young children (3 & 5), my husband & I went for a ride on one of these boats & we all loved it. The journey is only about 15 minutes long & it cost £20 for all of us. The kids were giggling all the way around the cove &... More
