Additional Trip Information

Our RIB Experience trip is on our 7.5m Rambler Excalibur RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) which is designed to take 9 guests on safari. 


It is licensed by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport and has an additional safety lifeboat on board.  You will be issued with a lifejacket, which is Wheelmarked, and given a full safety briefing before we embark on our adventure.  These are all requirements of the Marine Survey Office for your safety.

The duration of the RIB Experience is 1hrs and the minimum age for this boat trip is 10yrs.

Bantry Bay is home to common bottlenose dolphin and porpoise who live in pods around the bay.  You will also have the opportunity to spot grey and common seals swimming in the bay or basking in the sunshine lounging around on the rocks. Of course wildlife sightings can not be guaranteed and bird sightings are dependent on migrations and season.
