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.

What a fantastic time I had, paddleboarding for the first time with Reach Outdoors. Richard explained everything clearly and I felt very safe! Being out on the water was so peaceful, he made conversation but also respected our choice to just enjoy! I attempted to stand twice and fell in twice (there was an easterly wind that was against me - honest!) When I fell in, Richard was there talking me through how to get back on board but was also there to help me if i needed it. All in all, I can't recommend Richard and his team highly enough! I was apprehensive to start but the support we all received was great - thank you Richard - I'll be back!!

My 17 year old daughter attended the Gold Duke of Edinburgh residential at half term and had a great time. She said the activities were all very well planned and well equipped, and included paddle boarding, archery, coasteering, gorge walking, climbing. The staff leading the activities and overseeing the group at the bunkhouse were all great. The office staff were also very helpful and responsive when I contacted them prior to the residential.

The Coasteering session was absolutely brilliant! Danny and Ross were fantastic guides and made the whole experience the perfect mix of fun and challenging. We had the opportunity to start small and then push ourselves as far as we could, with bigger and bigger jumps! I would 100% recommend the experience and will definitely be going again - thank you!

Another very positive experience with Reach Outdoors. I and my partner tried the 2 hours Paddle Boarding session yesterday at Goodrington. Michelle guided us through and took us out in the water. Although we have tried it before albeit briefly it was good to have a professional alongside us giving us advice and tips. You also learn much more about safety when on the sea and having the proper equipment to go out with really makes for a great experience. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to Paddleboard. Even if you have bought your own get a lesson first as well worth it.

Excellent Coasteering session. The coaches were fantastic - ensuring everyone was safe as well as ensuring they tailored the sessions to everyone's needs (there was quite a range of people in the group) and making sure everyone had great fun and enjoyed the session.

My son, his girl friend and myself went on a two hour session with Jamie, our tutor. The whole experience was brilliant. Jamie was extremely professional and a great communicator, getting the balance just right between informing us about the all important methods and techniques, and just having fun on the water. Can't recommend the company enough

I can not thank Richard, Louie and the Team enough for such an amazing experience for my husband and 3 children when doing the Kayaking & Paddle Boarding at Goodrington Sands Beach this week.
We had unfortunately turned up hours early on Wednesday morning (my fault I hadn't checked the change of time due to high winds Thursday our slot had been changed to Wednesday and I didn't check the times properly) and within 10 minutes Richard had immediately altered his plans to accommodate my family!
I couldn't be more grateful for everything they did and to top it off the family had an amazing time together and made fabulous memories to look back on.
They are incredibly professional and even when my 8 yr old daughter fell off her Paddle Board and was a little distressed Richard was amazing calming her down and getting her back on the board and enjoying the rest of the experience 😀.
I can not recommend this team enough and will definitely be back soon.

Thank You Richard, Louie and All Staff at Reach Outdoors for everything.

Claire Worthington.

My 17 yr old son Harry had an absolutely fantastic 5 days on his gold DofE week with Reach Outdoors.

All the activities were age appropriate, challenging and really exciting. He loved the coasteering, gorging and river gorging as well as the team work. The instructors were superb and very knowledgeable.

He really appreciated the photos that Reach sent him after the week.

I would 100% recommend Reach - all the communication was excellent. My 15 year old will be doing this week when she is the right age.
