Fantastic tutoring. I felt very safe and confidant at all times. I had a really enjoyable day and wish it could of continued. I came away having learnt lots of useful things to help my enjoyment of boating. Tim is an excellent teacher who kept things very relaxed. I shall certainly be going back. I would recommend Sea-N-Shore for their courses. I will no doubt be taking family back to have ago at some of the activities on offer. Don't bother with others enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Salcombe.

I took my family on the seal safari today, arranged through Ali via text. We met our tour guide Tim who explained everything we needed to know, he then took us at a leisurely pace out of Salcombe harbour (8 knot speed limit) pointing out the castle built by Henry the 8th then subsequently destroyed by cromwell. (Just to show I was listening). Once out of the harbour Tim increased the pace to just over 34 knots as we headed east along the coast. we took a couple of stops to look at ship wrecks then eventually found the seals we were looking for at Start point, just below the lighthouse, we counted at least 25. Then we went on to the lost village of Hallsands, which has been mostly lost to the sea over the last 100 years. After Tim's lovely assistant told us the tale of Hallsands where her grandmother used to live, we headed back through some big waves off Start point which was a big thrill as we got airborne a few times. Big thanks to Tim and the team at Sea N Shore, highly recommended.

I would so like to trade my office with Tim's. (When it's sunny and warm at least)..

We booked this last minute with Ali by text and it has been the highlight of our holiday! The ride out on the rib was really good fun, and our guide, Tim, was brilliant with our chatterbox children. We went from Salcombe via Start Point almost all the way to Bee Sands and we saw too many seals to count. Highly recommend this trip, but consider using the Park and Ride as parking in Salcombe is a bit of a challenge.

Just completed my Power Boat Level 2 Course. Ali and Tim are great instructors, easy to get on with and they make the complex stuff easy to understand and fun. Very enjoyable, can't wait to pay them another visit. Highly recommended.
