β€”BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE ILFRACOMBE PRINCESS TEAM!

Family Run for Family Fun!


Adventure Ribs was founded in 2020 - Our vessel Bay Explorer is a RIB - a Rigid Inflatable Boat, she is 10meters long and was purchased from Wales. In 2022, we fitted two new 200hp Mercury engines to the hull, these are more fuel efficient and much quieter than the old ones. The rib can travel at speeds of up to 60mph - although we dont - it is nice to feel the power!

We use the rib as well as our big yellow boat as a sightseeing boat, the RIB gives you a more up close and personal experience, taking just 12 passengers. We have taken out 1year olds to 90year olds, it is great fun no matter your age.

Our team are brilliant wildlife spotters - many years at sea teaches you to spot a dolphin or recognise the signs that dolphins or other wildlife are close by. Dolphins absolutely love riding the bow waves and the wake of the boat, it's thought to give them that extra bit of speed!

If you are concerned about sea sickness this is definitely the boat we recommend - in all the years of operating we have never had a person suffer with sea sickness. This is the way in which the boat rides the waves, being a monohull she cuts through the waves rather than rocks around on top.

β€” Important information

Getting on and off the RIB


We require you to be able to have a good level of mobility to be able to step across to the tube and then down into the boat. We have fantastic staff who are there to lend a hand as well. If you are concerned if this is suitable please call one of our friendly staff for a chat.

Dave and Jensen We did a 1 hour discovery tour with Dave and jensen, they were both entertaining and professional. The exmoor coastline was outstanding, I never knew we had this area of beauty just a few hours away from our home in Bristol. They even stopped and pick out plastic, educating us on the importances of littering and where it all ends up! - in our oceans!. Big shoutout to these guys, highly recommend.
