Wild times on the water

Do a harbour tour with a difference and discover the Elbe’s most enchanting spots at high speed.

About us

For sightseeing with an adrenaline kick, nothing beats a harbour tour with RIB Piraten. We are the only speedboat operator allowed inside the Hamburg Harbour. Having Germany’s most beautiful and desirable location as our playground, means our staff and equipment have to meet the very highest standards. Which is why safety is our top priority. It starts with keeping our boats absolutely shipshape and extends to our skippers’ qualifications. Our pilots are either instructors with maritime authorities, captains with an unlimited licence whose primary professional activities are aboard ocean-going vessels in the Hamburg Harbour, or seamen with naval backgrounds.
In this way, we attain the pinnacle of safety in Germany.

Our boats

On board our RIBs (rigid inflatable boats), you’re in for a spectacular experience on the water.
Designed for offshore use, speedboats like ours carry Navy S.E.A.L.s and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society crews on missions out on the open sea. Powered by the latest environmentally friendly Yamaha motors with up to 300 horsepower, the boats measure just under eight metres in length and are light and agile. As a result, the vessels can reach speeds of up to 90 kilometres per hour when laden.
