Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Recently i attended the Kayak Splash session with my cousin.

And I can only recommend getting involved and booking this to others. We was greeted with a friendly welcome and with the wetsuits provided by Tackt we started putting these on about 20 mins before the session.

We was then briefed for the best ways to control the the kayak. Then set off. The setting and route was ideal, all within the Bembridge Harbour. (Due to some wind)

George the instructor was great. He ensured we was all okay in the kayaks and provided any assistance if help was needed. He set up some fun games for us, my favourite being the balancing on the kayaks, and trying to manoeuvre different body parts into the water without falling in.

George also offered some information about the local area, and was happy to take photos and send them to us after. This was a big help and some he even sent through some on Google Drive for better quality.

Overall the whole experience was great.

We booked a paddle boarding session with Tact-Isle and it was fantastic. Megan, our instructor, was wonderful - she kept an eye on us all and really encouraged us to try different things. Everyone at the HQ was also very friendly but we are so grateful to Megan for giving us such a brilliant experience.

A last minute sea kayaking splash booked by my son's grandparents and this 2 hour adventure was superb. You are introduced to sea kayaking which takes place very close to the shoreline and you can either use a single or double kayak depending on age and experience. You are given the use of a wetsuit and buoyancy aid (you need to wear appropriate footwear) and that is it, away you go. There is a bit of a walk from where you change to where the kayaking takes place but it's an easy walk. We were lucky as the weather was still, calm and warm and of course sometimes the activity can be cancelled if the weather is unsafe.

You don't need any experience for this and the 2 hour "splash" sessions isn't too demanding either.

The instructor called George was also superb with the group (mainly children). he is extremely experienced, friendly and professional and you are in very safe hands.

Ollie and the team delivered an awesome afloat day for our 60 young people and adults. The activities were imaginative, fun and a little bonkers which was exactly what the group needed after a busy week on the Isle of Wight. It was great value for money and filled an entire day.

The instructors at Tackt-isle have a great sense of humour and pitched the session perfectly at the age group whilst managing the safety and timings faultlessly. We really couldn't ask for anymore! Throughout the day kept the sessions engaging and made the day fun for all abilities. Thank you to team Tackt-isle for a brilliant end to our IoW week.

Thanks very much Tackt-isle for our Canoeing experience. George and Meg were professional, kind, friendly and very accommodating, especially with our son who has learning difficulties and autism. Both took a lot of time and patience and nothing was too much trouble to aid in novice canoeists. It was a most enjoyable experience, seeing the sights and having fun all the way on our 3 hour expedition. By far on of our best water based experiences we have had. Both my too children and my parents (in their 60’s) enjoyed this very much. Our most grateful thanks.

If you're in need of a water sports adventure that will leave you laughing and slightly waterlogged, look no further than Meghan's expert guidance. This was our second time with Meghan, and she never fails to impress. From sea kayaking to SUP stand-up paddle boarding, she's a friendly, physical master who knows how to entertain. Watching her do a gymnastic handstand on the SUP was both impressive and slightly intimidating, but she handled our middle-aged clumsiness with endless patience. And let's not forget her attentiveness to our 12-year-old son, showering him with helpful tips and tricks. Speaking of tips, Meghan's advice to "relax your feet" was a game-changer, according to my wife. So, if you're ready to embrace your inner water sports warrior, Meghan is the one to make it happen. Just be prepared to fall in and laugh until your abs hurt (if you have any).

Booked a kayak safari in advance - you can also hire equipment from them on the day from St Helens beach.
The trip was 2 hrs from St Helens beach along to the lifeboat station at Bembridge, then back to Bembridge harbour for a tour of its boats and bridges. There was a special skills test thrown in too but I’ll not spoil that surprise :-)
George was our guide and was knowledgeable, professional, and personable. He threw us some kayaking tips, some historical facts and some recommendations for the rest of our holiday. Cannot recommend highly enough - was a great afternoon. Thanks TacktIsle!

Really friendly staff from the point of checking in to the end of the session .

I'd not been kayaking in 20 + years, so was a bit anxious,i didnt know if my fitness levels after so long since the last time I did it would be good enough,as the distance was fairly intensive ( for me as it was a safari ) mainly because it was breezy, but I got around, but was really well looked after by the instructor ( Meg ) she was great throughout, checking I was ok as well as the other members of the group I was tagged along with.

All in all really enjoyable lovely staff recommended 5 star 🌟

My daughter and I had a fantastic two hour session of learning the basics of kayaking and then getting out on the open water under the supervision of the very knowledgeable and pleasant George our instructor. The whole experience was carried out in a very professional manner and we can thoroughly recommend it.
