The first challenge is to get in touch. There is no office, so you have to rely on a land line and a mobile phone. Messages, both voicemail and text, can go unanswered. Booking a trip is therefore a bit of a lottery. I was offered three options. I chose one which was not confirmed. On arrival in Salcombe I... More

Like Andrew's review we experienced a shambolic unorganised disappointment. Thankfully unlike Andrew no kids were involved! We were at Salcombe for 3 days and booked the week before via email for Tuesday 28th at 12. On Monday evening I had an email off Ali saying everything Tues would be cancelled due to rough weather at sea (fully understandable) could I... More

Out of this world. Fantastic activity whatever your age. Our party ranged from 17 to 52 and we all had the most awesome time. Ali was brilliant her coastal knowledge brilliant and her sailing awesome. If you do one thing in the south hams you must do this. Thank you so much. Memories are made of this.

We joined the RIB ride for the thrill of speed on the water but the wildlife and coastal history were equally as fascinating. We were able to enjoy the trip knowing that the safety was paramount and well considered. Very pleased to have been able to take the children on this great trip.

I have no doubt the Ali and her team are fantastic but we never got to find this out. My two sons, one of whom has learning difficulties were given a 'power boat ride' as a Christmas present form their Grandparents. We rang Sea-N-shore to arrange this and were told it was going to be too windy on the Tuesday... More

As a father of two very young teenagers 13 and 15 I was a bit apprehensive about them doing their powerboat course, but if you have a boat or hiring a boat in Salcombe then you have to know about the sea and the people that use it. The course is essential and both girls loved it and were looked... More

A fantastic rib boat ride with Ali! Great fun and very informative. We saw lots of Seals and a sun fish! A fantastic morning activity to do while you are in Salcombe. Would highly recommend.

Our family of four (all novices) have just completed this excellent course on our own (new) boat over two days in cold grey and then warm sunny conditions in Salcombe. Ali and Jamie were great from the (nervous) start as we departed Kingsbridge pontoon in less than ideal weather. They were patient, considerate, informative, fun, calm (a more than crucial... More

As a family of three we did the Powerboat level 2 course this weekend. Fantastic. Did it on our own boat through our choice. Our instructor was 100% passionate about what she does. It showed in everything we did. Amazing amount of knowledge. Extremely friendly and clear, patient and concise instruction. I can not recommend this highly enough and would... More

We chartered Ali's RIB for a 3 hour afternoon trip. Great fun and very informative. Went to see the seals, shipwreck, Halsands and some great waterskiing. Ali was really friendly, chatty, professional and fun. A great way to see Salcombe and the coastline from the sea.
