Four of us had the most amazing late afternoon ride out with Marcus!!! The weather was amazing and the whole experience was fantastic. I could not recommend it highly enough the only downside is that we cannot guarantee the weather for our next rib ride!!!!!

High quality boat, no-nonsense professional people. Very flexible on timings/handover and they want to help ensure you have a good day on the water. Lots to explore along the Solent - great lunch spots. Will definitely be back!
