We went for the 15 minute blast round Cardiff Bay, great fun! Tour guide was really friendly, engaging and made the experience fun for everyone. I've done the hour trip in the past as well which is good for larger groups and better value for money too. I'd recommend this if you fancy getting out on the water for a... More

My wife and I had lunch in the bay and were walking back to the car when we went past these guys, spur of the moment decided to go on a little bay blast. Such a lot of fun, really friendly crew on the shore and on the rib. Absolute bargain at £7.50 as well. If you're walking past, just... More

A group of us went on the Bay blast yesterday it was brilliant fun. The trip was a bargain at £7.50 each and was 15 mins of non stop laughter. Our driver was excellent and the trip was absolutely thrilling something we will never forget. Will definitely go again, worth every penny. Thank you all.

Took my grandson on a 15 min bay blast. Very well organised with a good safety briefing. Once clear of the traffic the pilot (?) opened the throttles and the fun begins! Tight doughnut turns really show the ability of these boats and the G - force is amazing. 15 minutes of blasting around the bay and all for £7.50!... More

A group of couples went on the sea safari bay blast. It was for a birthday for one of the group. The skipper was excellent and added to the experience with his banter with the group. 20 minutes of white knuckle ride around the bay. Amazing Prepare to get wet..

Wow what an experience, super fast ride over the waves. Which was fun and exhilarating, however it was spoilt at the very end when the driver who was going at a very high speed, suddenly turned the boat to the right and I slid across the seat hitting my side into a metal bar, which after a week I am...

£30 for two adults and two kids for 15 mins well worth the spend. Tricks and high speed all the splashes made it great fun for all of us .

Unexpected end to a day's shopping in the city. Only took the short ride 15 minutes but even at £7.50/head this was really good value. We were booked in by a really helpful woman who stored our bags securely until our return. The driver of our "vessel" took real pride in twisting and turning us to achieve maximum thrills. Group...

This blast around the bay is absolutely the best value for money in Cardiff bay, it was superb from start to finish, adrenalin filled but very safe, had a great time and loved it, will be back for more
