Rib Rides and coastal trips
Having sold our rib we have looked around for someone to take over the enquiries we get.
We have spoken at length with Rachael at ‘Monty Halls Great Escapes Dartmouth and feel that people wanting an education RIB trip with some education about the shore line should give these guys a call.
Below is a snip from their WEB site
MONTY HALLS GREAT ESCAPES 4 MARKET STREET, DARTMOUTH, TQ6 9QE, IS NOW OPEN!
What’s In There?
We stock all of Monty’s natural history and expedition DVD’s and books. A lot of the time we stock Monty and Reuben as well, but only when they’re in town or not at sea (if you’re keen to say hello to them, give us a call beforehand and we’ll let you know when they’re around).
Boat Trips (1 hour):
We have an 8 metre Rigid Inflatable Boat moored on the river. With a top speed of 40 knots and a range of 200 miles, the coastline is very much our oyster. Whenever possible Monty or a local skipper will run wildlife spotting trips up the Dart and out along the coast. Look out for when these trips are happening on the notice board in the shop, on our website, or just give us a call if you want to book ahead.
The south Devon coastline is one of the most beautiful in Britain. The shore walk takes you along a section of rocky shore and sandy beach. The rockpools and strand line are home to a fascinating array of marine creatures, and our guide will reveal the wonders of this dramatic ecosystem. Ideal for families and particularly good for children (any age up to 100).
We are very fortunate to have worked with some award winning natural history film-makers and photographers. The courses we run give them – and us – a chance to pass on the tips and experiences that have taken a lifetime to accumulate. Training runs right from a basic package that will get you started, through to advanced courses that will equip you to present your ideas to broadcasters, make your own films, present a natural history programme, or take truly outstanding wildlife images.
Not a course as such, just an excuse to go diving. The package includes at least one days diving with Monty from the RIB, and a barbeque in the evening. Dive equipment not supplied, although air fills are available. Please call or email for prices and packages.
