Come and join us for an exhilarating experience as you take to the coastline waters of North Devon onboard our passenger RIB!

A skippered RIB ride from Appledore, near Bideford, you’ll have fun whilst getting to see the beautiful North Devon coastline and its diverse wildlife. Whether you’re looking for thrilling excitement or a relaxed tour around the coast, we’ll have something that suits.

Hello, my name is Ashley Clements and I have been skipper of a passenger rib, The Nightingale, on the River Torridge and the Bristol Channel for the past 15 plus years.

I first set up the business to work out of an activity centre where we took school children on school trips, but I am now offering specific trips and tours to the general public.

I have always been on the water, first taking my British Water Ski Federation Instructors Qualification 35 years ago. I also hold various qualifications in kayaking and surfing. I am a licensed skipper of the MCA offering The Nightingale from sunrise to sunset Category 4 coded.

I look forward to welcoming you on the The Nightingale for a pleasurable and memorable experience.
