What is a RIB ?
The RIB ( Rigid Inflatable Boat ) is a kind of speed boat with a hull made of polyester . Around this hull is an air-filled tube applied. The low weight, combined with the rigid hull and a strong engine makes it a very seaworthy and maneuverable speedboat . RIBs are therefore referred to as the 4x4 of the sea .
How hard sailing RIB 's?
The maximum speed is around 110 km per hour . But as hard as that we do not not sail constantly , our aim is always that all guests have a good time. A little more about the maximum speed: This depends on the motor (hp) in combination with the length / weight of the boat, experience of the skipper , weather , currents and the number of people on the boat .
From what age can you sail with us ?
Under 15 years accompanied by an adult required .
am i getting wet on the boat?
While sailing you will not get wet , but a little splash you can always expect .
when is it not wise to sail with us ?

Are you insured during a RIB Adventure?
Yes , WaterWorld Adventures has a passenger insurance .
Do you work throughout the year ?
We sail all year, both for excursions as income support tasks at sea.
Can we drive the boat by myself?
This is the question we get very often from our customers . Of course it is very nice to sail itself and certainly the ' experienced ' skipper thinks it just to do . : However, there is a number of factors because of which we are not able to allow this:
- The sea is unpredictable and much experience is required.
- The boats have a lot of power and speed , a mistake can be easily made.
- For passengers insurance it is required that we have a licensed skipper at the wheel.
- Finally we have the responsibility for all passengers.
