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.

    Joined Julie from Epic Life for a Pool practice session. Was absolutely fantastic. Great guidance and instruction from Julie and a really safe place to enjoy practicing step back turns and moving about the board without needing to worry about falling into cold water. Loved it. Will be back!

    Even if the weather had not been so wonderful, it would still have been fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The skipper, John, was great. He was cheerful, amusing and well-informed. I can most certainly recommend John's tours (have already passed the info on to other friends). Given the opportunity, I would definitely go on one of John's other trips.

    The whole experience was great, the fast boat ride was so much fun and the views along the coast were stunning. We all loved sitting and watching the seals playing, sleeping and popping up all over the place. We couldn’t believe how many there were and how close some of the more curious ones came to the boat. There is definitely nothing better than watching wildlife in its natural habitat. The twenty minutes watching the seals went far too quickly, we could have watched them all day but would definitely have loved some more time. I would highly recommend this trip but make sure you follow the advice to wrap up warm for the boat trip particularly if you go in October!!!

    I recently did the 2 day Outdoor First Aid course with Hatt. It was the 4th such course I have done for my MTA qualifications but the first with Hatt and it was by far the best one I have done. An experienced, informed and passionate instructor providing ample opportunities for questions and clarifications as well as realistic scenario based learning in the woods at Blacklands Farm. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a 2 day outdoor first aid course!

    We were a group of 10 rookies who barely had any fishing experience before. Jay did a wonderful job of creating a friendly environment for us to enjoy the 4 hour trip, caught many fish, and learned how to properly fish. Would come again and recommend to anyone to would like to try out sea fishing.

    We very much enjoyed the experience and Paul (the Skipper) provided very interesting and informative commentary during the Trip. With the benefit of hindsight, it would have been preferable to have gone on the Trip during Summer when the weather conditions were better. If attending later in the Year, it is sensible to wrap up warm. Nevertheless, we had a most enjoyable time.

    Enjoyable and relaxing stand up paddleboard experience. A touch of yoga. Plenty of wildlife seen. Tony was a friendly and helpful guide.

    A friend and I rented a couple of paddle boards for a couple of hours. Camber Kitesurfing were so welcoming and friendly. The whole day was made so much better with how accommodating and helpful they were. The beach was so close and we had the best experience! Thank you so much. See you next year! Joe B 🤙

    Booked a fathers day gift for husband who went with our 15yo. Both of them absolutely loved the experience, so much so we booked the seven sisters (the first trip was to the now absent sovereign lighthouse) 10/10 for music choice and adrenaline rush. Looking forward to doing this again in the summer

    We had a 2 hour paddleboarding session that had been arranged for a hen do. We all had a great time, all staff were welcoming and fun, they made the bride feel special and we played lots of games, it was a great way to celebrate. Would highly recommend!

    Took the powerboat level 2 course. As a relative novice I found our course instructor, Simon, to be very relaxed and unintimidating. He was clearly extremely knowledgeable and experienced and had some fantastic anecdotes to break up the learning. The weather was mixed so the tuition was flexed around this. Great experience and really pleased with everything I learnt. Simon was excellent!

    I went for a SUP lesson with Cliff on the sea. Before the lesson, it was overcast with a chance of lighting. Cliff was very conscientious, calling to ask if I wanted to rebook the session, monitoring the weather and keeping me updated to let me know the lesson could go ahead.

    The lesson itself was really fun. Cliff was great at helping me learn the basics, giving me tips on my technique and keeping the session fun and engaging. I would definitely recommend Epic Life to people who want to give SUP a try.

    Best thing to do in Brighton. The lagoon is an amazing place to try water sports with incredibly supportive instructors and a great range of activities on offer. I’ve been a member for three years and have learnt so much from everyone at the centre. The Beginners’ wakeboard course is a fantastic and well priced way to give wakeboarding a try. Couldn’t recommend more highly!
