“A brilliant find.”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

I was born and raised on the Isle of Wight, but moved to Devon 14 years ago. Every time I return to visit family, I am struck by the potential of the island for outdoor pursuits and have often lamented the fact that no-one seems to be capitalising on it. Well, now someone is! Tack-Isle Adventures hire out kayaks, paddle boards, mountain bikes etc and even have a couple of mountain boards available. They also offer kayaking and sailing instruction. The prices are very reasonable. For example, we hired a double kayak with buoyancy aids and wetsuits for £25 for 4 hours. I'm no expert on hire charges, but that seems pretty good to me. Mountain bikes are just £15 for an entire day, which is excellent value.

The facilities are good too, with changing rooms, a shower, a seating area where you can eat your own food and you can even have free tea and coffee after your chosen activity. This is a brilliant place and we will certainly return when we visit the island again. It really deserves to do well.

Thank you for your great review, positive feedback is always appreciated, it makes all the hard work worth while!
The reason we set up was that we too grew up in this beautiful area and were always surprised that there wasn't a centre offering a wide range of adventurous activities to the public.
I hope you will visit us again soon and take advantage of our excellent new activities and equipment as well as great value for money!
Many thanks
