“Had a great time, learnt new skills and had so much fun even though I capsized twice!!!!”

“Andy took us Sea kayaking today. It was totally brilliant! He was calm, professional, friendly and safe. He was fantastic with the kids (teen and tween) and they both had a blast. He was knowledgeable about the history of the area as well as the wildlife. It was a really great afternoon, we would highly recommend and would definitely do it again when we’re in the area.”

“We did the half day sea kayaking course and went out with Andy. What an absolute fantastic day we had! Andy was a fantastic guide, patient and knowledgeable, we got to see lots of wildlife and will definitely be back for another trip!”
