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.

Cancelled my experience due to not being able to obtain insurance.
Have tried emailing and calling to arrange a refund and have been consistently ignored!
Would never use again or recommend to anyone.
Customer service is awful.

I have been with Saberpowersports on 4 occasions now. My 50th birthday, work team building, mum’s 80th birthday and now my son’s 30th birthday. Each time the experience has been excellent. The weather today was wet and dreary but that didn’t detract from the amazing time we had on both the Honda and the Thunderbolt. Nadia and the team are always on hand to talk you through both the safety aspects and look after you during your time. Will definitely be back at some stage. Keep up the good work guys!!

Thank you so much Angela for your very kind review and it was great meeting your son, James :) Can't thank you enough for returning to us for the 4th time, we must be doing something right or you just love the adrenaline fueled rides, which I think is the case. Obviously runs in the family. I very much look forward to seeing you again in 2020. Thanks again Angela and enjoy your retirement.

Although it rained non stop today (12 Oct 19), it did not dampen spirits. The experience I had on the Viper was amazing and would do it again. Definitely worth a try if you like to do something different. The staff were knowledgeable and went out their way to make our trip one to remember.

Firstly, I am a relatively experienced powerboater and RYA licence holder so bear in mind when reading this.

Saber offer something you just can’t get anywhere else. My brother and I did the Honda race boat, the thunderbolt and the jet viper. All three are very different so rather than trying to choose, do all three! They are nothing like your normal motor boat, the change of direction and handling performance is razor sharp and just hilarious to be behind the wheel of. I personally liked the Thunderbolt, like a go-kart on water!

Nadine and Tony run a hugely professional and friendly set-up that I would recommend to anyone, regardless of experience. I don’t think you will find the variety and real hands on boating offered here anywhere else in the U.K. Many thanks.

I was given a birthday present of the Ultimate package - three power boats, including driving two of them.

Absolutely fantastic! I loved every second of it, even when I was being thrown all over the place and soaked on the Jet Viper. I also got lucky with the weather - warm but with enough wind to make the waves interesting!

Professional setup, very experienced and skilled skippers and every attention given to safety. All exciting, but the Jet Viper is the best theme park thrill ride you'll ever get.

Add to that very reasonable pricing and this has got to be the best day on the water ever. Could not recommend more highly.

My family did the Viper jet trip and loved it. My children are adventurous 11 and 12 and they had an excellent trip - it says you'll get and we did! - even with waterproofs! Although this added to the fun for us. We got to sit at the back and the front and both are good. Ramos, our captain, was really friendly and made sure we all had fun. Highly recommended.

I was bought as a present the complete experience which includes the jet viper, the formula 4 Honda power boat and a small black power boat the name I forget.

I was a bit nervous being a solo female but the sat nav took me straight to the car park, plenty of parking and the two young staff on arrival were super. My skippers were Ron and Ramos both seemed a little crazy but both were so lovely. Ron didn’t bat an eye lid when I tried to join a sailing race and break neck speed 🤣. All the staff came across with a real passion for what they do and an enthusiasm that’s infectious.

The experiences themselves were different but equally great. The viper was mega fast, thrilling but as it’s turns and stops in an instance you get very very wet. You get to drive the formula 4 powerboat and the other boat. Even though you probably only drive for 10 minutes each being in the back is just as fun. A little bit like a rollercoaster without the safety harnesses. You get thrown around at speed and I don’t think I stopped laughing the whole time. (Swallowing a fair bit of sea water in the process!)

There’s a little cafe that does a nice coffee, breakfast and lunch. If you takeaway there’s a nice place to sit overlooking the marina a few steps away.

My advice would be if you’re doing all 3 rides bring two changes of clothes and I mean complete changes of clothes including pants and a second set of shoes and make use of the hot shower at the end - the facilities were clean and comfortable.

I had a fabulous day and would recommend this package to anyone if you love speed and a bit of excitement!
