How flexible and charming could any one bunch of staff be. The equipment is top-notch and health and safety are top of the agenda with staff in harbour to rescue any folk in difficulty. We did kayaking and paddleboarding and we must have been out for ages but they would not take any extra money from us. The wet suits... More

Had the pleasure of riding with skipper Craig on the White Cliffs coastal tour on Sunday. He and it were fun and informative - give it a try.

Something for everyone - but wrap up warm! Much more than the chug round the harbour we expected. An exciting power-boat ride which thrilled and combined with a great commentary by our driver Craig (a real Life Boatman) bringing the White Cliffs and Channel to life. Well worth it for both tourists and locals who want to see where they... More

Had an excellent afternoon out in the rib with Craig as a birthday present with my daughter. Craig certainly knows his stuff and the 1hr and 30 mins flew by metaphorically and literally as we sped up and down the coast at over 25 kts stopping every so often whilst he pointed out various sights, wrecks and phenomena. Have worked... More

The weather was good, which always helps, but they do have waterproof trousers, in case of rain. Craig, our guide, has been entertaining all along, sharing many stories with passion. The ride back is so enjoyable, speeding along the white cliffs. Great way to spend a couple of hours

I went on the seal tour in good weather, mainly to get a good look at the White Cliffs, but found the seal colony very enjoyable. James is personable, professional and really knows his stuff about the seals and the local area. His assistant Danni was lovely and just as professional. As it happens, James is the company founder and... More

Booked for a treat for 3 disabled young adults. Staff were brilliant from arrival to end. The boat crew were great, they trusted our judgement on what we wanted as a small group. They were keen to ensure that each of us enjoyed the experience and pushed our enjoyment to the limit. They continuously communicated with us as to each... More

Been on the Sea Safari today with my brother Tony and his daughter Naia, what a fantastic experience it was. The sights were great and the fast boat better than a theme park ride. The crew were very professional and courteous, would not hesitate to recommend the trip and did so in the pub afterwards. Been there done it and... More

Absolutely brilliant, lots of history along the cliffs, stunning views and fun on the bumpy waves. All the family loved it. Plan to go back to do the seal safari trip.

We originally booked a trip which was cancelled on arrival at the venue. The staff were completely helpful and apologetic, and re booked a new date. We were given the option of a refund, and car parking was paid. I am glad we re booked because we had a great trip out. The company were very professional with 2 safety... More
