We booked a SUP lesson through Alex who was really helpful. We were staying in Chard but booked in Exeter as this looked a well equipped facility. I've had a little experience and have my own board, but my husband hadn't had the opportunity to try the sport so it seemed a good plan to book a lesson while we were having a few days break. Chris was our instructor, and he was superb. Husband was standing on his board within a few minutes, we both had a few dunks, but a brilliant experience which really made our few days break magical ..... A great facility with awesome staff - Thanks Guys !!!

Ben was superb with our daughter who was nervous about caving. He was patient, fun and professional. Our daughter came away very happy after initially being apprehensive.

What a fantastic location and we were assisted by excellent staff. 11 year old birthday party of caving (man made but great fun) and Abseiling. Friends are still talking about it and it was fab. We had a fantastic instructor as well which really helped. We WILL be back!
