TackT Isle is a great find. The team are really friendly and helpful. We were on the Island for three days, we did Segway on day one. The kids and my husband loved it and got very competitive. On the second day we went on a Kayaking Trip around the bay - a good opportunity to play battleships! On the last day I gave the kids the choice and they opted for more Segway. You could go seven days running and do something different every day. We would strongly recommend a visit to Ben, Becky and the team.

We wanted to go outside and do something active. The weather was too windy for sand sailing so we opted for a Segway experience. We had never done this before, so we all had a go. Great fun! The staff were very helpful and gave good instructions. The complimentary coffee was also very welcome. Inside we also had a go at table tennis. There are so many things to do. We will definitely come back to try one of the other activities in the future! Thanks for a lovely afternoon!

I visited Tackt Isle last weekend, and took my girlfriend. Having not taken part in many water sports before I wanted to show her some new activities; we tried sailing and paddle boarding and she fell in love with both. The beautiful harbour provided the perfect setting and the instruction was second to none. All of the staff there made us feel so welcome, it had a really relaxed family vibe.

We had a wonderful time messing around on the harbour, and my girlfriend a keen Pilates enthusiast is desperate to go back and try out the paddle board yoga sessions!

On the Sunday we took out some mountain bikes and cycled around the coastal path to Seaview. They catered for everything and the equipment was top notch.

I really can't recommend Tackt Isle highly enough. Booking my next trip now!!!!!!

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.

Hello!
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
Ben
