Great day for 2 families. Ben and Elisabeth were perfect hosts and guides. Half a day fitted so much in - all paddled to a smugglers cave, then on to a beach for toasted marshmallows. Icing on the cake was seeing a seal right in front if us. Would definitely recommend for experienced or beginners at kayaking.

Great people running activity. Really wanted to make our day, and did a great job. Would defiantly use again.

We booked through a third party, would be better booked direct. Hence value for money only 4 star.

We love to walk along the coastal paths on our holidays in Devon and be near the water. Ben took my son and I on a fantastic adventure out of the mouth of the Dart and to a nearby Mew rock where we got wonderfully close to the seal family there - coming and sniffing our boats and swimming around us. Being in a kayak really does make you feel close to the sea and the wildlife there. It was stunning to look up on the cliffs as we made our way there and back and see a completely different vista than usual. Stopping at one of those beaches that no-one else from the land can get to was also great. It is tiring, but definitely within the reach of anyone that wants to go I would say - Ben is great and sizes it all up so you won't be pushed hard...he also has a tow rope :)

We went for the park and ride, but Ben has a secure lockup for all the spare clothes and towels etc for afterwards. You just need clothes you don't mind getting a bit wet. You can do it without footwear if you forget your flip-flops or sandals. There is a small toilet block very close that can be used for changing, but only a tiny basin for washing afterwards...good enough for face and hands though

Amazing!! Ben and Tom were great, learnt so much! We saw seals and birds of pray. When we stopped for lunch we always had a laugh, finding a rock to jump off, it was so much fun. Defo recommend it to anyone, the instructors always cater for everyone:)!

We went out on a half day trip with Tom as our guide. I was the nervous one of the group & so shared a double kayak, it was no hassle to Tom to change the kayaks to help me feel calmer. We were given clear instructions & shown how to use the equipment. Tom took us out of Dartmouth river, around a couple of headlands to a beach along the coast where we stopped for snacks. During the trip we explored some caves & although I sadly missed it, most of the group saw a seal. Tom was a lovely guide, very friendly, experienced & full of enthusiasm. We all had loads of fun, it was an exciting experience & left us wanting to do more, I would definitely recommend sea kayaking with Sea Kayak Devon to others & we will definitely go back when we get the opportunity. Thanks to all the team!
