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.

    We are hooked! My daughter and I went on the sea safari and enjoyed it so much. Seeing the coastal beauty of Torbay from the sea was breath taking. The crew were absolutely amazing and very knowledgeable of the history and heritage we had the privilege to see. The next day my partner and I went on the fish & chips sunset cruise, everything was perfect, best fish and chips I have had in a very long time, thank you Rock Fish! Once again the crew were fantastic. The week following my daughter and I went on the Round Robin again a really great cruise along the coast and then able to spend time in Teignmouth. Yesterday we went on the Super Moon cruise to see that last super moon of the year, the Harvest moon. It was spectacular, magical in fact, everything was just perfect, even the weather! Today we went on board again and did the cruise down to Slapton and Start Point where there is the most awesome lighthouse. The trip included a Devon cream tea which was really yummy. So I have done 5 trips in the past 4 weeks and am looking forward to what comes next! Thank you Skipper (John) and your trusty crew for making some of the best memories for my daughter and myself. See you soon!

    This Museum is a small local museum but is packed with information concerning the local shipping industry and also the effects on the community of the wartime period. With various other displays, including some relative to the former use of the premises and some which are interactive, it makes this small museum very interesting. Well worth a visit.

    This sea water pool just outside Brixham, on the road to Berry Head is so under utilised. Lovely views over Torbay. There is no charge for entry all they ask for is a donation. The pool has lifeguards and is ideal for families with young children. The bistro, Shoals on the lido is a wonderful place fresh seafood from Brixham well cooked and all served by friendly staff. The scallops and hake were so fresh they must have been caught that day. There is plenty of parking available.
    A definite place to visit again.

    We loved our experience of visiting the Strand Art Gallery. We were made to feel very welcome and the owner was very well informed about all the artwork and artists. We fell in love and bought a painting of Brixham harbour, which will always remind us of beautiful Brixham.

    We walked from Brixham and really loved Berry Head...the wild flowers within the battery were beautiful and a haven for bees. Great views of the Torbay and rocks. Well worth a visit.

    Great beach with onsite parking and bistro. The beach is pebble and when the tide is in it is a steep drop. One step and you are knee deep in the sea. It is a lovely cove and the breakwater makes it a great place to swim.
