“Brilliant RIB Trip”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We originally booked a trip which was cancelled on arrival at the venue. The staff were completely helpful and apologetic, and re booked a new date. We were given the option of a refund, and car parking was paid.
I am glad we re booked because we had a great trip out. The company were very professional with 2 safety briefings, supplying good quality clothing for the trip.
The historical element of the ride was very informative and full of facts, and the fast return was exhilarating!
All in all highly recommended, and thanks to Craig and our "guide"

“Great view of the white cliffs”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Me, the wife and our 2 teenage daughters all had a great time on the Dover Sea Safari.
Weather probably has a big say as to whether or not you'll have a good time but we had lovely weather which just added to the actual trip.
Really interesting facts given during the trip and some really great sights seen.

Excellent competent, friendly and informative crew.

Reviewed 6 August 2014

Highly recommended for all ages, staff were excellent - extremely helpful and very well informed. Only downside may be price a bit high for families, but worth the price overall. Thanx danny and skipper pete,

“Fantastic day out”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Really recommend it, can't believe I've lived here all my life and not done it before (didn't know about it). Can understand why it's the No1 attraction in Dover on here. Took our 4 year old son who had a great time too. Will definitely be back to do it again.
