Consider a half day for your group or ask about a variation on times for your day. We can also add to your experience a marine photographer to ensure your day is captured on film or look to add a powerboat, yacht or a landbased experience like clay pigeon shooting or go-carting.
An example day out:-

Leave port and ride out to your decided destination / area or event.
Consider anywhere like in Cowes or Yarmouth on The Isle of Wight, or travel to Portsmouth for lunch on a lightship or to visit the Spinnaker Tower or travel to another wonderful location of your choice (We are prepared to book in advance if needed for you and your group), How about The Folly Inn East Cowes? The picturesque Lymington Harbour or Beaulieu River to Buckers Hard
After lunch you board your boat and enjoy the next venue or destination for the afternoon, maybe a run to The Needles . Spend some time enjoying more of the views and performance power boating or joining in another experience.

The Solent is one of the most popular coastal areas of Britain, it is on the doorstep to The New Forest and stretches some 25 to 30 miles from Hurst Point castle in the West towards Chichester Harbour in the East, it offers a wide variety of cruising. The Solent is the International centre for yachting and hosts many major sailing and power boat events throughout the year.
There are many marinas on this stretch of water, with each port and town worth visiting -from Southampton with its busy docks where the world’s largest cruise liners visit, to quaint harbour towns such as Yarmouth on The Isle of Wight for lunch. Each charter is personally tailored to your requests to visit such famous sites such asThe Needles at the North Western end of the Isle of Wight, The Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth or just sight seeing in picturesque rivers such as the Beaulieu River into The New Forest or the Lymington River.
Our Ribs can comfortably carry ten people and are licensed for twelve including the helm, we can also arrange for larger parties using very similar craft operating under the same safety guidelines. Our aim to give everyone a fantastic time on the water either watching a major event, for instance a round the World Yacht race, a major powerboat race or supporting major clients such as The Skandia Cowes week sailing event (now known as Cowes Week) where we have supported tall ships, yachts and power launches. Do you need a Rigid Inflatable Boat for filming or events? We can also arrange for a photographer to meet your demands for action photographs of you, your crew and your boat.
