Blue Thunder Rib Rides

There are three different types of boat trips available from Blue Thunder Rib Rides. Specific trips will suit different people better depending on how many people there are in your party and what you would like to get from the experience. For example, larger parties may prefer to VIP-PRIVATE CHARTER so they have full use of the boat and totally to themselves, then they can make an itinerary. However smaller parties may prefer to book two or three seats.

Logistics

As with any ocean based activity the weather always plays a part. There are certain conditions when a boat trip in the Bay is not comfortable or safe, even if the sun is shining the wind can render the bay unsafe. In an effort to mitigate this we have opened a second departure point on the South Coast, out of Penzance harbour, a 30min bus ride away.

When conditions dictate we will inform all our customers and allow you to either transfer to the South Coast or delay your trip until conditions improve on the North Coast. However, you will not be disappointed with a trip on the South Coast where your trip will take in the fishing port of Newlyn, Mousehole Harbour and the world famous St Michaels Mount.

“This is NOT your average boat trip. I HIGHLY recommend you put your doubts to the side and go for it, you will NOT be disappointed. Whilst out on our trip, we were extremely lucky to see Cornish grey seals in their natural habitat, AND dolphins, including a baby!”

“The warm, relaxed, welcome we received from those members selling the tickets, to the gentleman piloting the rib were an added plus to the whole experience. I probably should point out, lifejackets are provided, and we had a very young girl on our trip who seemed to enjoy it too.”
