I booked for 6 people, originally to go kayaking in August, but hurricane Bertha put pay to that! Re-arranging the trip was no problem at all; the staff were very helpful in sorting out the re-arranged booking. We eventually decided to go at the beginning of September, we were lucky that it was a nice day, not too hot or... More

We had a great time on our kayak snorkelling trip. The tour leaders were friendly and knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. They adapted the tour to suit the ability of the group and the conditions on the day and explained everything brilliantly. Can't wait to go back.

We joined Dan for 3 days to refresh our skills and were not disappointed. The kit he provided was good quality and his instruction was spot on. He works very much with you to achieve your goals. We felt challenged but safe and it was a really enjoyable experience.

Booked a kayaking trip with Studland Sea School. This was our first time kayaking and we all had a great time and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I felt that 3 hours was a bit too long for my 12 year old daughter. On booking this trip it should be suggested at the time of booking to bring... More

My wife and I had a really enjoyable morning kayaking in Studland Bay and through the tidal race off Old Harry Rocks. Dan was most patient and gave us confidence - we were also impressed with his in depth knowledge of seaweeds! We're now both hooked on the sport and are buying our own kayaks. Thanks Dan !

For my sons 13th Birthday we had a coasteering session and I can't fault it. The walk down from the car park to Dancing Ledge was a long one but the scenery was amazing. All equipment was provided and full instructions were made very clear. It was a challenging and exhilarating experience and no pressure was made to complete the... More

My wife and I went twice on bespoke sea kayaking tours with Studland Sea School - one to Old Harry's Rocks and another around Poole harbour. We're not particularly adventurous so we embarked on our first trip with a little trepidation - but almost immediately we loved it. The guide was friendly and made us feel at ease. He made... More

Went on the Old Harry tour this afternoon. The team was great, equipment quite new and in good repair. The area around Studland Bay is beautiful, the sunny weather helped! Will go back again
