Coasteering in Howick

My 16 year old son tried this with his swimming club and loved it - jumping off cliffs in a wetsuit and bump cap great for the confidence and well organised - excellent .

This has to be the worst level of customer service I have ever experienced, from both Sarah (who must have though I was on hold when I heard her description of me to her manager) and Michael Curry (manager). I never write bad reviews but I would hate anyone to experience what I have today. I was continually talked over,... More

This company literally ruined my day! Everything was going fine until something went wrong and i had to contact customer service to make a complaint and arrange a refund. Everyone i spoke to didnt care at all using words like "not our problem" and also talking over me until i had to stop. They were really rude and eventually hung... More

We ordered two vouchers through Groupon back in May 2015 to go Sea Kayaking we have had 3 separate dates booked since and ALL have been cancelled. A few friends of mine have also booked to do the sea kayaking on different dates and theirs has also been cancelled. Our Groupon voucher code was also requested by this company prior... More

This was cancelled 3 times and was done so for safety reasons. We have no control over the wind speed or the sea state and I are not prepared to compromise mine or other peoples safety which much come for, staff or customers after all you are paying us for our knowledge and expertise to ensure your trip is safe...

My son and I are new to kayaking, but the pace was relaxed, there was plenty to see and our guide Paul has great stories to tell; we even saw salmon swimming upstream! My only regret is that I didn't bring the camera for fear of it getting wet. Needed have worried and the photos of the castle would have... More

Booked Sea Kayaking via a voucher firm. Adventure Northumberland cancelled twice with notification, and the last time on a sunny calm day, without notification, or if you believe them, they sent a text & an email but somehow I didn't get either. This meant that I wasted half a day and £20 petrol money only to find there was nobody... More

I am sorry you were disappointed with the cancellation of your activity. Cancelling is not a decision we take lightly, and do so if there is a risk to personal safety, which we are not prepared to take. We try to make the decision with enough advanced warning to allow people to make alternative arrangements, sometimes this is not possible... More

We all enjoyed a excellent afternoon coasteering around the Howick area. Friendly and professional staff, always encouraging and very knowledgable. Great fun.

We (the mother and myself) had an afternoon of kayaking on the river Coquet in Warkworth. We both really enjoyed the experience and have booked the coasteering at Howick - one of the most beautiful beaches on the Northumberland coastline. Getting back to kayaking though..... a quick safety debrief, wetsuits on and 3 hours of rowing, laughing, exploring the old... More

We booked kayaking for 4 children, two aged 15, one 12 and one 9 years old. We met at the river in Warkworth. The equipment and initial instruction was very good, the instructor was friendly. The kids went off in two-man boats and were gone almost 2 hours. At under £30 each this was great value and they all had... More

My partner and I had a fantastic coasteering experience with Instructor Paul. We were part of a group of 8 which was a great size so that when taking turns jumping into the water it didn't take too long. The parts of the coast we were 'playing' in were very interesting, and as well as being an enthusiastic and encouraging... More
