Attraction Information

Take in a historic site of natural beauty - the Jurassic Coast - with Lyme Rib Rides.

Rib is a sea term and stands for 'rigid inflatable boat'. The team like to call her Sea Spirit, and she can carry up to 12 people, from age 5+. They’re a family run business so make sure trips have something for everyone; whether that be a ‘need for speed’ with brand new 250hp engines, or simply a comfy spot to take in the stunning views of the coast from their specifically designed benches. The team are fully qualified so just sit back and relax.

They offer a wide mix of trips, from the Coastal Rib Rides and Jurassic Coastal Cruises, to speciality trips and rib charters. This would make for a wonderful day out at sea.
