Fantastic treat for friends, loved ones & colleagues !

RIB Charter


Ness RIB ( Rigid Inflatable Boat ) Charter is available throughout the Highlands and is the perfect day out for both Private and Corporate parties. Ribs are fantastic fun, extremely fast and manoeuvrable and offer the chance to do something a little bit different, something special.

Used by lifeboat organisations the world over for their ability to safely traverse serious seas, ribs are uniquely safe, exciting and fun.

Rib Charter offers the perfect day out for Private and Corporate parties 




The Highlands and Islands are blessed with some of the most spectacular scenery in Northern Europe. Historic castles, Abandoned Islands, Caves, Geo’s, Sea stacks, Towering Cliffs and of course the odd Monster can all be discovered on a RIB Charter.


Not only does the Moray and Pentland Firth offer beautiful and varied scenery, there are also several species of dolphins, whales and porpoises (collectively known as cetaceans) found here, including bottlenose, common, white-beaked and Risso’s dolphins, harbour porpoise, minke, pilot and killer whales.

Private RIB Charter

Through using a Private Rib Charter Service, you’ll enjoy a hassle free day and all the benefits of local knowledge from a commercially qualified Skipper. Our RIBs are fully trailerable and able to operate from most harbours, piers or slipways. Explore the Moray or Pentland Firth, Loch Ness or the Summer Isles in style and most importantly safety. All our RIBs are fully MCA coded for 12 passengers, immaculately presented and equipped to the highest specification. Everyone can have a drive under tuition and learn a little about high speed handling. Longer Charters can be arranged, leaving more time for going ashore, wildlife watching or just sitting back and admiring the spectacular Highland scenery.

A fantastic treat to enjoy with your loved ones, friends or family !
