REDRIB OFF-SHORE EXPERIENCE
Where the wind lives. That is where we go. Leaving from Helsinki we head off-shore for a dance on the waves. You will wear a top-of-the line Ursuit Survival Suit, a marine inflatablehelmet and automatic life vest to stay warm, dry and safe in any conditions. Safety is our highest priority and is never compromised. Speed and routes are due to weather conditions and passenger capabilities. On this journey you will safely experience the true nature of a rigid RIB.
We meet 20 min. prior to departure at Vironallas, the leisure boat port in front of the old Market Hall on the MarketSquare,Kauppatori. We can also pick you up at your maritime hotel pier. Here you will be given your passenger equipments for the tour. We will provide you with the best equipments available. A 100% waterproof Ursuit survival suit, neoprenebaclava and gloves, a inflatable marine helmet and an automatic inflatable life west are included. The suit has integrated welded rubber boots. After a extended safety briefing we head for the open sea south of Helsinki.
From Kustaanmiekka the driver reads the wind and the waves, and decide which way to go. Usually the route goes either directly south pass Harmaja lighthouse or towards the east. We open up the throttle and look for the optimal speed according to the conditions. You will experience the difference in riding with the waves or against them. Sometimes we follow the shape of the waves, sometimes we fly over them with the propeller in the air. On this trip you get the feel of the dynamics of a rough sea and how to safely drive in speed under such conditions that leaves most of the regular boats in shore. You will notice how a commercial RIB -boat works under these conditions and realize why this boat type is used in resque missions, by the military and the coast guard.
For safety reasons we take a maximum of 4 passengers on this tour. This tour has a higher difficulty level and is suitable for adults only. You do not need to be an athlete to participate, but you do need to have good normal physical functions, maritime experience and to be an outdoor/boating enthusiast to appreciate this tour to its full extend. If you never have been in a fast open boat before, please book one of our other tours. You need a long sleeve warm pullover in fleece or wool as personal clothing. Please do not use a cotton-college shirt with a hood. You can use an on-body waterproof camera like GoPro on the trip but no hand -held or phone camera can be used during the drive. We always drive according to actual weather conditions, not the forecast, and passenger capabilities.
