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.

My Wife and I decided to try something different this year for our Anniversary and selected Coasteering with Global Boarders. Whilst it pushed us out of our comfort zone, Chris our instructor was fantastic. Heading out at Lizard point, Chris selected a route that was perfect for us beginners, whilst still stretching us. We also got to swim with the seals! It was truly a special day and an anniversary we will never forget. Our thanks to Chris and all at Global Boarders, next time we are in Cornwall we will try surfing lessons!

I had the best time an amazing kayaking session with a tutor called Rob who explained everything really well and got everyone straight out having fun.

An unexpected treat we spotted 7/8 Seals couldn't have asked for more.
Beautiful scenery and a great day, Highly recommend this tour.
Thank you

We had such a great time paddling boarding with Lizard Adventures at Hayle Harbour.
We were 3 Adults and 1 child (10yo)
Fran was fantastic, she was very informative and put us all at ease straight away.
We had a thorough briefing to start and then had a group practice before setting off up the estuary.
A special mention to India who looked after the 10 year old in our group, which allowed the adults to get to grips whilst he pretty much had a his own instructor.
2 hours was perfect amount of time for beginners.
Be prepared to get wet! Also make sure you follow the directions they send on email we followed Waze sat nav and ended up going the wrong way.

Our kayaking trip from Cadgwith Cove was brilliant. Adam’s instruction, additional information and optional challenges made for a fantastic experience and we’ll definitely be booking for other adventures!

My 3 teenagers (and one of their friends) had an amazing private beginners lesson with Phil Hickey. He was brilliant with them, going through the basics and getting them standing by the end. He made it fun, and all 4 remarked how supportive, kind, and encouraging he was. Gwithian is such a beautiful place to surf too. We then hired boards for days afterwards from them to practice the skills Phil taught them. Highly recommended.

Joined a group sea kayak tour from Mullion Cove led by Adam and Joe - the whole experience was amazing, and I will definitely be booking another trip in future. I joined as a solo traveller and would certainly recommend for solos. The group was very mixed in terms of age and experience, but both Adam and Joe managed this perfectly, offering an experience that suited everyone - felt safe and challenged throughout and the caves we went in were astonishing. It would be worth adding to either the website or details sent pre-tour how to access using public transport - there's an excellent local bus service and the location was less than a 15 minute easy walk from the bus stop - this should be encouraged as the local narrow roads were very busy. This trip was the perfect end to my holiday - thank-you!

Four, nervous complete beginners turned up at mullion for our first ever 3 hour paddle board session with lizard adventure. From kitting us out, to explaining what to do and safety, our instructor, Steve was epic! We all had the most amazing time and Steve's knowledge of both the sport and the area and it's wildlife, flora/fauna and patience was incredible! Special shout out to Steve too, for how he delt with our frightened and nervous 9 year old daughter half way through, after a tow she cruised back into the harbour standing up, solo and beaming! All staff were friendly, we had the best time and very much felt safe and our minds were put at ease immediately. Not to mention the secret cove and rock jumping. Thanks guys for a very special day and the memories we made. Magical. We will be back. Lisa, Leanne, Chris and Gracie.

Went coasteering with Global Boardriders and Chris with my two sons, 12 and 15. It was a private booking, so just the four of us. It made for a great day out and was tailored to our abilities. Loads of interesting info and a really unique perspective on the coastline. It was the boy's favourite day of the trip, and my youngest was very happy he'd made the jumps. Highly recommended, I would do it again.
