RIB to Nidingen or other islands & ports

Laughter and cheering howls are heard over the sea when the “Rev-Venue”, our RIB, is cruising between the waves in the archipelago on the west coast. The days when Kattegat is calm, it is quieter in the boat and the guests tend to pick up their cameras instead.
Whatever the weather, the experience and impressions will be something you remember for a long time.

How is it to ride in a RIB

Rev-Venue, the name of our boat, has six seats up front and six further back, which means that you can choose what suits you. In windy conditions it is more movement up and down for those who sit at the front, while it can be really wet for us in the rear of the boat when the wind pushes the water towards us.
If the weather is calmer, there is no big difference between the front and the rear.
We always adapt the speed with regard to the guests´ convenience and the baggage on board.

It is extremely rare that you become seasick in a RIB because it does not “roll” between the waves.

Most of the season we use floatation suits because they provide both buoyancy aid and warmth. The days when the sea is warmer, the air warm and it is not too “wet”, we use automatic lifejackets from Baltic.

  • Any food is packed in hard cooler bags eg.
  • Clothes etc. in soft bags
  • Floatation suits are warm
  • Life Jackets are available for 40 kg and up
  • Good footwear and casual wear that can withstand water is recommended
  • Sunglasses are advisable to bring
  • Smaller children sitting in the same seat as an adult, <40kg bring their own life jacket
  • Children under 1 year are not counted in the maximum number of 12 passengers
RIB on the west coast – why?

We have chosen to use a RIB for our trips and excursions to Nidingen for safety and experience reasons.
RIB is an abbreviation of the English words Rigid Inflatable Boat ……. The rigid hull floats without the inflatable tubes, but the tubes provide extra buoyancy if the boat is filled with water plus they make the boat much more stable when there are big waves.

RIB skipper with experience of 11 years on RIB in the Kattegat. Experience the sea in a safe way with us at Gottskär Hotell
