Seamless from start to finish, Ali does an absolutely brilliant job end to end. We organised a 3hr wake and banana boat session for a stag and it was an amazing afternoon, 2 ribs, 2 bananas and 19 people. Everything is really really professional, from the quality of the boats to the instruction, but fun with it, which is really... More

I very strongly recommend Ali's Sea N Shore business - from training courses to rib rides. Ali is an exceptional teacher with a phenomenal capacity to pick up new skills and train others; and on the back of that has personally built a great business that can either teach you to enjoy watercraft safely, teach you to become a serious...

Booked this as a birthday treat for my partner, and it did not disappoint. Ali was very helpful during the booking process, and she was our pilot on the day; she and her 'first mate' were very friendly and knowledgable. For a landlubber, this is an exciting experience, travelling over the waves at 35 knots. The boat is powerful and... More

Visited 25th Oct as a family of 4, including boys of 5 and 10. It is very professional yet friendly, and the boat looked really smart. The ride was brilliant - fast and exciting. Definitely worth doing.

I went on an 007 fast rib ride out of Salcombe and along the coast to Hallsands with my two children (11 and 8). They said that the best bit was the fast turns, and they couldn't get enough of them. It was a brilliant way to see a beautiful coastline, with Ali,a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable host. We also... More
