Despite having walked the White Cliffs on a number of previous occasions, both my girlfriend and I were blown away by the view afforded to us during the White Cliffs and Beyond trip. The guides were both extremely competent, interesting and knowledgeable about the local area and it was just a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours.

Fabulous trip - would definitely recommend to friends and family if your looking for fun, adventure and history. The weather was lovely and sea conditions quite calm, we had the morning trip but noted that the afternoon was cancelled due to choppy waters! Before going on RHIB there are toilet facilities, places to buy ice cream and drinks.

Original bookings cancelled a couple of times because of weather conditions but the communication and rearranging was excellent. A comprehensive safety briefing without being onerous and very good equipment and expert operators. - - - - and it just got better - apart from the thrill of the RIB boat 'Stuart' provided an excellent commentary. My three friends couldn't rate... More
