Launch RIB/expedition

Enjoy the Jurassic Coast from the sea with a trip around Weymouth and Portland on one our RIBs (rigid inflatable boats). We have 6.5m RIBs and a Motor Launch.

Launch RIB isn't very active, so great for those that want to sight see from the water. If you are looking for a bit more of thrill, check out other activities.


You will meet at the centre to get kitted out. We'll then take a short walk Weymouth Marina where our boats are moored and you are off on an adventure. The instructor will then skipper the launch on a journey down Weymouth Harbour and out into Weymouth Bay. Weather permitting you will then head into Portland harbour.

Sessions usually last 3 hours.

What to bring

You won't normally get wet but if the conditions are rough we may ask you to wear a wet suit or waterproofs (which we will provide). You will need to bring:

  • suitable clothes for the weather
  • swimming costume or shorts (to where under wet suit if needed)
  • pair of soft soled shoes that can get wet
  • towel
  • packed lunch if you are here all day
