Eyemouth Rib Trips can offer passengers a leisurely coastal tour or a high speed “splash and dash” ride. Tim’s boat ‘Brightwater’ is one of the toughest and best respected in offshore RIBs; the manufacturer chosen by the military and law-enforcement.

The boat is a very exciting ride at 40mph all in the safe hands of a highly experienced offshore racer.

Skipper Tim is a veteran of some of the most gruelling offshore races and has recently won the Round Ireland Race as well as the Cowes-Torquay-Cowes.

For those seeking a bit of peace and beauty, coastal explorations can be enjoyed at a slower pace. Last year passengers saw a mother porpoise and her baby, a young basking shark, minke whales as well as seals, gannets and all the usual sea birds around St Abbs Head.

Eyemouth Rib Trips also run a shuttle several times a day between Eyemouth and St Abbs.
