To help cruisers get even more out of their holiday, Fred. Olsen Cruises offer some incredibly thrilling and invigorating RIB rides during cruises onboard Black Watch and Boudicca. A RIB - Rigid Inflatable Boat – can take you into the heart of the action in no time at all, enabling you to see some beautiful views and enjoy once in a lifetime experiences.


 

At the start of one of Fred. Olsen’s RIB shore tours, those onboard will be given a brief overview of what to expect, but the details and hidden treasures will be kept quiet to ensure that the adventure is full of exciting surprises. The trip will last between 60 to 90 minutes, during which you could be transported to a tranquil scene of hills and fjords, a dolphin playground, or to see an imposing glacier, to name a few possible outcomes!

 

 

Each individual experience is likely to differ from the next, with the driver of the RIB reacting to the surroundings. They might pause or travel slowly if approaching wildlife, or there might be chances to rev up and speed through the waters in an adrenaline-fuelled ride.

The RIB rides allow cruisers to get up close and personal with new destinations, exploring them in such a way that no detail is missed. Imagine being taken right up to a sparkling waterfall, or to the shores of what seems like an undiscovered beach. Or you could get close enough to luscious forestry to see eagles soaring and woodpeckers chittering away on the trees.

 

 

From 2019 RIB rides will be offered wherever and whenever possible onboard the two Fred. Olsen cruise ships, but the excursions will be subject to local weather conditions and port restrictions. It’s possible to book the tours at an additional cost, simply speak to your sales advisor when you have secured a cruise booking. Take a look at our range of Fred. Olsen 2019 cruises to find out where in the world you could discover next.
