I took my 2 kids (4 and 6) onto the White Cliff trip and it was a fabulous one. I was a bit worried little ones would get scared or sea sick, but even my 4 year old, apart from holding me tightly, really enjoyed the fast ride, and 6 year old had a great time. Special thanks to Craig... More

Fantastic couple of hours on the seal safari. We took our kids 12 & 8 and they loved it. Prior to departing we were given a safety talk and all fitted with life jackets, and waterproof coats, which were a blessing as it gets mighty cold as you head out to sea. We headed up to the seal colony at... More

An excellent, educational and fun trip on a rib powerboat along from Dover to deal (and back). Great guide William and skippered by Craig. Weather was excellent, looking forward to another trip

The boat and the crew were really great--it is probably the best way to see the cliffs in Dover. We got a little history, some action with the fast boat, and saw the entire length of white cliffs. It was safe and comfortable the entire time, though we did have a calm day at sea.

The four of us had a truly wonderful time - a long drive from Hassocks and back afterwards to do it but so worth the long journey. My two guests were visiting from Zimbabwe so for them especially, a tremendous experience. Of course the friendly staff added to the fun. William the attached photo is for you - your challenge...

Completed the White Cliffs and Beyond trip with my two young sons (6 and 3). An excellent experience and thoroughly recommended. The trip includes some good local info and history with plenty of speed! The staff were excellent and really made an effort to look after everyone on the trip. Many thanks - planning the seal safari next time.

This was a fabulous experience and great value for money. A really exciting way to see the white cliffs of Dover....from the sea!! The staff were very helpful and clearly very experienced and knowledgeable. The commentary as we went along was excellent and the boat pilot made what could be a scary experience into a memorable, exciting and safe experience.... More
