Great experience, good value.. very enjoyable
This week I’ve been talking to Annabelle from SeaDogz RIB Charter about their extreme powerboat experiences in Southampton. Whether you want to gather a group of friends and compete in a treasure hunt, or go on a thrilling ride round the famous Isle of Wight Needles, SeaDogz have something for everyone.
1) Please explain your journey as ‘SeaDogz RIB Charter’ so far.
All of our Skippers and crew members come from a background of working for Lifeboat charities, and so we have a strong interest in the safety side of RIB Experiences. Our aim as a company is to show you what these amazing boats are capable of in the right hands, when driven by highly trained and experienced skippers. All of our experiences are carefully planned to not only be fast, exciting and extreme- but also safe and affordable.
The best part of the job has got to be running the experiences- it’s hard work, but worth it when you see people enjoying the experience, hearing them scream and reading their reviews.
What keeps us interested? The customers- everyone is different and no two trips are the same! While we work hard to make the trips enjoyable, having a great group of people on board makes our job seem like a day out. The customer feedback helps us improve our experiences and develop new ones. We are always looking for new experiences and are constantly thinking up new ideas for charters and experiences.
2) What has been the biggest or most memorable event you’ve provided?
As a company no, but individually some of our Skippers were awarded the Queens medal in the Jubilee year for their services to lifeboats.
3) Is there any inside information you can give us?
Don’t wait for good weather to book! Rougher seas make for a more exciting trip and don’t worry about the rain- we will be getting you wet anyway!
To get the most out of the experiences charter a boat- that way we can fit the trip to you and make the experience exactly what you want it to be. If you have never been on a RIB before then we recommend the 60min RIB Taster- it’s a great way to show you what these boats can do- and will leave you wanting more!
4) Do you have any exciting plans for the future that you’d like to tell us about?
We are always looking to come up with different ideas for experiences- we aim to offer a wide variety at difference prices to suit different budgets. As the company grows we are adding more boats to our fleet and taking on new staff who come with new skills and ideas for us to develop.
Q: How much do the boats cost?
A: Our RIBs are custom made for our requirements and the current market value is around £120,000.00 per boat
Q: How fast to they go?
A: top speed is around 55-60knots depending on weather and sea conditions.
Q: How many people on a boat? Will we be on the same boat?
A: There is seating for 12 passengers, plus the skipper and crew. If you book at the same time then you will be on the same boat. (groups of more than 12 will be split across 2 or more boats)
Q: Are the any restrictions?
A: yes- the minimum age is 8 and all under 18’s must be accompanied by a participating adult. The experiences are not suitable for those with a bad back, neck or leg injuries and pregnant women. It is a high impact experience so you need to be fit and healthy. If you don’t like boats or the water then this is not going to be the experience for you.
Q: What do we need to wear?
A: Dress for the outdoors and appropriate for the weather. Waterproofs are recommended as you may get wet. You can either bring your own or hire ours. All lifejackets and necessary equipment will be provided.
Any other information you’d like to add.
We do exactly what it says on the tin. When we say it’s fast- it’s fast! When we say extreme, we mean it!
