I booked a 1/2 day with Ben for my girlfriends birthday. We had a great trip out, cursing along the coast and investigating coves and the rocky coastline. Ben is great company on the water with a fantastic relaxed manner. His equipment is top notch and you feel completely safe. A great experience all round, we are both thinking of coming back for a longer trip now.

Did 2 days of sea kayaking up Dartmouth Estuary and on day 2 out to sea.
Had only been in a canoe when I was 11 (now in 40's!) but Ben was so confident and put me at ease and I had no worries. Good briefing beforehand and really attentive whilst on the water. Great equipment and spare kit for us to borrow.
Very attentive to our needs and has local knowledge of where to stop for coffee and lunch etc. Took a packed lunch on day 2 and found a secluded beach to picnic on...awesome!
I would thoroughly recommend using this Company, a really nice guy. Thanks Ben, cant wait to bring the kids xx

A fantastic day out for all ages and experience. Ben is an extremely good host and enthusiastic company, being knowledgeable about the area and kayaking in general. His kit is 1st class, the kayaks being big and seaworthy filling you with confidence as you head out to sea, and the outfits keeping the worst of the weather off you. I spent a full day with Ben in a group of five paddling out of the estuary and back upstream for seal spotting and tea and cakes at Dittisham, in all covering 13 very relaxing miles. I would never have guessed we'd traveled so far.

I would recommend tying in a night wild camping just off the river, sadly though I never got to..maybe next time!?

I couldn't recommend a day out with Ben highly enough 5*

Had a fantastic half day out with my Father in Law and another group of visitors. Been kayaking on the Dart for a few years now. Ben is a fantastic host and really put the rest of the group at ease who hadnt paddled previously - especially considering the large swells on the sea. Very knowledgeable about the area and a great tutor.

We will certainly be booking up for the next time we visit Dartmouth.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!!!!
