Had an unforgettable time in the caves! Gary and Robin knew so much about the rocks and the area we were kayaking in,... it was really special. All the staff are extremely welcoming and friendly and make it such a joy to go and kayak with them. I've gone for the last three years and every year it gets better. An absolute MUST for anyone in the North Devon area.read more

Hired three times this week as the kids (7, 4) loved going out in the kayak. Very friendly and accommodating staff who... clearly care about the safety and enjoyment of their customers. Equipment appears fresh and not "tired" which gives confidence. Interesting area to paddle around with occasional porpoise spottings. Recommended.read more
