Feel like a proper James Bond while speeding through the Solent on a RIB (rigid inflatable boat) with the wind whipping through your hair. This action-packed experience is perfect for thrill seekers and those who love a bit of fresh sea air. Begin with a safety briefing and a demonstration of the safety equipment before boarding the RIB and heading to the Solent. Once on the water, hold on tight and see what the RIB can really do – jumping the wake or riding the swell as the driver steps it up a gear. After taking in Bramble Bank, Calshot Castle (built for Henry VIII) and the River Hamble, return to Southampton with more jumps, tight turns and wake rides all the way back.


Experiences run every weekend and selected weekdays between March and October and run only on weekends between November and February.


Extreme weather conditions can result in cancellation and rebooking, please call the venue if in doubt.
