Fabulous customer service from Rachel and the team at Reach. Our Guide Company booked for Summer 2020 way before COVID was a thought, the booking process was easy and well informed.
We then had to move our booking by a year due to GG restrictions etc - no problem for Reach they accommodated this very easily and willingly.
Now for a number of reasons we have had to cancel the booking altogether. Rachel couldn't of been more helpful on both occasions and we have been offered a full refund.
Fabulous customer service and we will be back in a couple of years when its our turn to visit Devon again!
I should also add that while researching water activities in the area - these guys came out top on both activity offering and value for money.

I contacted Reach Outdoors last month in need of some lessons for myself and friend. We both felt that we could do with some extra training to help develop the skills we already had and to build our confidence in exploring new areas and getting the most out of our boards this year. Rich was great over the phone and designed a bespoke session for us based on our ability and what we wanted to get out of the training. We covered so much in 2 hours: weather conditions, decision making, safety and self rescue; we perfected our paddle stroke (game changer in conserving energy!) and most importantly had an amazing time out on the water. I would highly recommend booking a one to one or group session whatever your ability.
We’re all very confidently looking forward to the season ahead in our beautiful bay!
Thanks again

Reach Outdoors and the Team have been fantastic in supporting young people with additional needs, struggling with their mental health and or physical disabilities. The team are inclusive, welcoming and have a can do attitude.

If you want to see the bay from the water, or leap from the coast, improve your outdoor or climbing skill I can't recommend them enough.

We had a fantastic time on our intro to kayaking trip with Jamie as our guide. The 2 hour session was just the right amount of time for us (me and my partner and partner’s dad) and as novices was at the right pace. Jamie took the time to make us feel comfortable before we got in the water and highlighted local landmarks and wildlife. Thanks for a great trip!

28 members of our Sea Scout group had a fabulous time on an afternoon's coasteering with Reach Outdoors. Kids and adults alike had fun and many pushed their comfort zone, but still felt safe and well looked after by the team. It was easy to book with excellent communication beforehand to make sure the group enjoyed an excellent session.

This was my first time coasteering and had a fantastic time! It was incredibly wet and windy, but it's a great activity to do when the weather isn't the best. Our instructors (Rich and Abi) were both really helpful and enthusiastic. They made the experience incredibly enjoyable! We jumped off various rocks which increased in both height and adrenaline as the session went on. The instructors were very supportive and gave you the opportunity to push yourself in a safe manner. You didn't have to do any jumps you weren't comfortable with. Overall I'm really glad I tried this out and would love to give it another go if I'm ever back in the area.

We went coasteering today with reach outdoors very professional and safe. Accommodated us last minute and the whole experience was amazing from start to finish. We went as a family of 4 with 2 girls 8 & 10 all of which have never done anything like this before. Reach outdoors made us feel really comfortable and safe throughout the whole experience.
Would defo recommend an experience not to be missed and they provided us with lots of amazing photos as a memory of the day.

Amazing three hour kayak tour of the coves and beaches around Torbay with the wonderful Rosie. She was helpful and informative without being overbearing and we felt safe and looked after the whole time. Also some great local tips for beaches to visit and places to eat and drink! Would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking to explore the area by sea

Take 4 moody teenagers and their older parents put them in wetsuits for the afternoon and give them ever increasing challenges- and the rewards are great. Aaron and Jamie were brilliant - right balance of encouragement and reassurance- despite the cool water and weather the wetsuits kept us warm. Short swims followed by scrambling over rocks and seaweed and exhilarating jumps. We had the best afternoon and really enjoyed every minute. Would definitely recommend and will be back when we’re down this way again.

Thanks to Azzie we could experience this amazing adventure as a family. She professionally instructed us to attempt thrilling jumps, as well as considering our needs as a young family. The children absolutely loved it and it was the highlight of our holiday. My son had a significant injury to his leg, but the positive support and guidance from the whole team made it possible for him to take part. We would highly recommend Reach Outdoors.
