RIB Rides

cropped-IMG_2895header.jpgWant to experience the thrills of high speed RIB on the water? Then come and enjoy a ride on our custom built COBRA™ RIB ‘New Venture

With over 200hp capable of pushing the boat along at speeds approaching 50mph we are sure you will leave with an experience to remember! Enjoy the thrills of high speed on water in Loch Ryan Leisure’s custom built RIB offering charters from Portpatrick covering the Lower Clyde, Loch Ryan, Luce Bay or the Solway. We are capable of covering over 200 miles given the right weather conditions.

From our base in Portpatrick harbour we can offer fast runs along the coast, or charter the whole boat by the hour to whisk family and friends away to explore further afield. Loch Ryan Leisure can tailor an experience to fill your requirements from birthday parties, hen or stag parties to corporate days afloat. We can offer something for all tastes, from the adventurous looking for thrills to the excitement of nature spotting along our fantastic coastline.

The crew are trained to the highest standards and approved by the Maritime Coastguard Agency as are our boats. We can provide you with light-weight waterproofs but would advise you to dress for the changeable weather we have. Fully automatic lifejackets are supplied and must be worn by everyone when on our pontoons and boats.

30 Min experience fast RIB ride

The 30minute fast RIB ride gives a taste of power boating in the safest way going. With a highly specified boat and skippers trained to the highest of standards what better way can you think off to get an introduction to the thrills and fun of boating. We provide you with the latest lifejackets, give you a full safety briefing before using all 200hp to propel you across the water at speeds most boaters only dream of, taking in the views around our stunning coastlines before slowing down to disembark at our pontoons in the marina.

Isle of Man trip on a fast RIB charter

Leaving Port Patrick early in the day to make the most of your visit to this stunning island. The trips can run to Peel, Douglas or Ramsey taking 2 to 3 hrs depending on destination and sea conditions. We aim to leave Portpatrick no later than 8am and leave the IOM no later than 6pm during the summer allowing us plenty of time to cruise home for an evening meal in one of the local resturants.

Ailsa Craig packages

Loch Ryan Leisure are offering two fast RIB packages out to this ancient island. The first being a 3hr sight seeing tour cruising out to the island before taking a slow circumnavigation around it to see the seals, colourful puffins, gannets and maybe dolphins, porpoise and basking sharks before heading back into Portpatrick for a run back past some stunning scenery and historical points. Once back on land you can get something to eat or drink in many restaurants and cafes.

For the more adventurous of you we also offer a landing package. This is basically the same as the first but you are able to set foot on an island known by many names and whose finest granite has been used in the sport of curling for many years. Look around some remote houses no longer lived in and climb a landmark seen from miles away. Once all are back onboard safely we will tour around the island before heading back into port to disembark.

Schools & other associations

Loch Ryan Leisure are able to tailor RIB charter packages for educational or team building trips. Getting our youth out into the natural world is becoming increasingly hard so we are willing to work with you to put together an affordable package that suits both your needs and budget. This can be for pure fun or as part of an educational package to help study groups.

Corporate Events & Parties

As more companies look for ways to reward employees or to build stronger teams we can help by giving them memories and common bonds that make for an improved workplace.
