Peter is friendly and helpful, has a wealth of local knowledge and jokes about pirates. We went on the trip to Beachy Head, it takes about an hour. There was a slight mix up with my booking but they went out of their way to resolve what was probably my mistake. In the harbour and on the trip we were... More

A great way to see a view you never normally see and that is from a high speed boat. Just the trip out was great fun, skipping over the waves and the ride was actually very smooth and not a bone jarring experience. The trip starts with a friendly welcome, but be aware of the pirate jokes!! The craw provide... More

Beware that if your playful children pull the chord of a life jacket, you get hit with a £30 charge. This was neither pointed out in the paperwork and seems excessive as you can buy a new life jacket for £45. I was told on the phone that in order to have the children in front of me - to... More

What fun! A trip to the Sovereign Light Tower! We were issued with waterproof trousers and jacket.. I went prepared with a fleece underneath with a hood and sunglasses.. Apparently I sat in the worst seat (at the back )for the spray..! I needed windscreen wipers for my sunglasses, put up my hood to keep the spray and wind out... More

Went on both the Sovereign Light Tower and Beachy Head trips over the Airbourne weekend for something a little different and these trips certainly did not disappoint! The crew are really friendly and make the trips enjoyable and informative. Loved the Sovereign Light Tower...amazing to get so close to it. Like it's been said before, if you don't want to... More

Fab trip out to Beachy Head lighthouse. Great weather, brilliant added bonus of the air show and a little race with the lifeboat! Felt safe in the hands of the crew and a bit of excitement hopping the choppy waves!

What an amazing trip! We did the sovereign light tower trip and recommend it! If you don't fancy getting too wet I'd suggest sitting at the front. They supply waterproof clothing too. Friendly staff who know what they're doing. We are going to book the beachy head trip next!

Was lucky enough to have a trip to Beachy Head. Apart from a thrilling experience and amazing sights it was very informative and having lived in Eastbourne all my life I still learnt things.

I took my brother as one of his 'treats' for his 60th. The entire experience was interesting and fun from getting through the Marina lock, then out to sea at speed, and a wonderful close to look and talk about the Beachy Head cliffs and lighthouses.. Very safe and well looked after by the crew. Take a sweater even on... More
