Sea Sickness
People rarely get sea sick on an open RIB .Traveling at speed you avoid the motion sickness you get on ferries. On our RIB you are closer to the sea, with very little rolling motion , you are also sat in the open air and you can always see the horizon, which really helps !

Can I purchase gift vouchers or merchandise? Yes a range of vouchers are available and merchandise can be bought from the trailer and the end of the trip.
