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.

    I'd never been kayaking before so I thought I'd give it a go. The instructor (Andy I think) was a lovely guy and made you feel at ease straight away. Really enjoyed a relaxing hour kayaking in Itchenor. Only £20 which is amazing value

    Enjoyed a trip with my Grandchildren to see Santa. The event was put on really well and the volunteers made the event very special. It was a great pre Christmas trip and much enjoyed by all.

    I took my 2 boys on the half term special. We haven't been on the Loxwood trip before but had passed the signs many a times. The staff were very friendly and polite. The trip was a lovely calm tranquil experience. After our boat trip, we took in a drink and snack at the pub, which is alongside the canal.
    We would definitely visit again soon.

    This trip really exceeded our expectations! The crew on the boat were are very friendly and competent whist the guide was incredibly knowledgeable and interesting to listen to
    My wife and I aren’t birdwatchers, but he made the subject really interesting for a couple of hours as he talked about the birds we saw and used this as a ‘gateway’ to all sorts of other anecdotes.
    There are no refreshments on board so take your own (there’s a nearby cafe for take-away hot chocolate, coffee or tea) and if you go in winter I’d recommend a cushion or towel to sit on - the seats aren’t uncomfortable, but they can be cold or damp.

    Amy and Ian were fantastic! We were a group of family and friends of all ages (10+) who thoroughly enjoyed the paddle boarding experience. Some of the group were beginners, but Amy and Ian were able to quickly make us all pros! After an hour they were all playing advanced games and having lots of fun. Amy and Ian are also fun as instructors making it all the more enjoyable. Highly recommended and would do this again. Thank you.

    Another fantastic 4hr trip with Sussex sea charters. As usual Warren put us on the fish and the kids had a great time catching Congers, bream , bull huss and doggies and a very special Red Mullet!
    Thanks again Warren can't wait till the next trip!

    A group of students with additional needs had a brilliant lesson from staff who were very friendly, attentive, encouraging and flexible.
    Highly recommended!

    Don't let the mixed weather dampen your fun! We went here with the children, age 9 and above, thinking that if it did rain they'd be wet anyway! A brief thunderstorm didn't deter them either as they sat out and had a yummy hot chocolate!
    The team are so friendly and the inflatable park great fun.
    We went late afternoon and the children almost had it to themselves. If highly recommended it, just don't follow the sat nav to the left of the A27 on approach from Worthing!We came to a dead end but got back on track following signs to Chichester, coming off the roundabout at Pizza hut.

    Anya took us on a great marine walk for two families with kids. We all learnt so much and cannot recommend this enough- a must activity for any visit to Selsey!

    First trip back since pre-lockdown and the work from the new owners is clear to see.
    Lots of areas have been cleared making casting easier, but it has been done sympathetically enough to keep lots of spots for stalking.
    Plenty of stocked fish visible and some nice larger specimens but you do need to work to spot and target them which is how it should be!
    Only rated a 4 as there was a weed problem on one of the lakes (though stalking on that lake still produced a 4lb rainbow.)

    If your previous experience was disappointing pre-lockdown I would recommend you give it another go.
