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.

He failed to show up, wouldn’t answer the phone, pretty terrible situation tbh. Not impressed in the slightest. Clearly doesn’t value his business enough and just takes peoples money

We had a great trip today with John Wheeler as our guide. We kayaked down the River Avon out of Christchurch. John took us at our own pace and pointed out wildlife, flora and fauna en route. He was knowledgeable about the area and allowed us to take in the beautiful scenery. We would thoroughly recommend Aquatic Leisure as an enjoyable experience! Thank you, John!

It was very enjoyable and educational sea kayaking with John Wheeler along the Studland Bay. It’s the closest I’ve been to Old Harry Rocks, and it feels like travelling back in time, in million years.

John is the man to see for anyone who is interested in exploring the beauty and history of the Jurassic Coast through sea kayaking. I felt safe and would definitely do it again with Aquatic Leisure.

Can't recommend Aquatic Leisure enough! Was the perfect way to end our holiday, our instructor John was a pleasure to talk to and was a wonderful guide. John also has great knowledge of the harbour which made the tour all the more interesting when learning about the area we were kayaking through. 10/10 would definitely do again :)

This was a great way to see Poole harbour whilst getting some exercise. John was a great host and we all really enjoyed the experience.

A really lovely trip on the water from Christchurch out towards Mudeford. It was great seeing that area from water level along with the hundreds of grey mullet swimming past us. John was a great, helpful and calm guide, we would be extremely happy to go on another kayak trip with him.

We had a wonderful trip around Poole Harbour across to Brownsea and smaller islands on Wednesday 16th June 2021. John took great care of us, teaching us the ropes of kayaking and explaining points of interest about local history, the landscape and wildlife. Weather conditions were excellent and it was so peaceful on the water, plus a really great way to see the islands from a different perspective, especially wild birds close up - the Oyster Catchers my favourite! Thanks John for a fantastic and memorable trip!

We enjoyed an amazing 3 hour adventure with our expert and friendly guide John around Poole Harbour. We would definitely recommend this trip to others of all ages and experiences, and will be booking a subsequent trip later in the summer.

Had an amazing time! It was our first time kayaking and although the weather was a little rough we felt like we’d had great instructions and also felt very safe. 10/10 recommend.
