“One of Dover's highlights. Brings inspiration to a town that really needs it”
Reviewed 28 June 2011

Went with pa and my brother. We had a great trip and saw our locality in a new and interesting way. Good staff – friendly, knowledgeable and they made us feel like part of it as opposed to spectators. Highly recommended.

“Great fun for all the family”
Reviewed 27 June 2011

Our friend's had arranged this for us when my husband and I visited at the weekend with our (almost) 3 and 4 year old. I was a little anxious about safety and suitability for the kids but the crew were fabulous and put us at ease. The boys loved it and kept asking when there were going to be more 'bumps' and they loved the speed. The crew were great and asked if everything was ok, should they go slower, faster etc and they had a lot of local knowledge which made the trip even more enjoyable. Would definitely do it again.

“to coin my 6 year old, ''is this cool or what?''”
Reviewed 19 June 2011

A completely off the cuff decision for a Fathers Day outing - and a completely fantastic one! A trip with my husband and 6 year old daughter which turned out to be an amazinrg experience we all enjoyed. The crew, James and Nicola, were friendly, informative and genuinely committed to ensuring we had a great time. It was a thrill to see the seals but the real highlight was the amazing speed and thrill of zipping across the coast in a rigid inflatable at what seemed like, crazy speeds in crazy swell. We are locals but to see our our shoreline from this perspective was incredible. Scarlett (my 6 year old) didn't stop screaming with laughter and dear husband got a good soaking. We felt safe but exhilirated and would really recommend these treat - not just for Father's Day but for any day you can justify treating yourselves to a safe but high adrenalin treat that was great for all ages. This is a great set up with great people and we will definitely be back for more.

Fantastic! We love hearing the responses from the Kids as they are totally honest with their innocence. Glad to hear you big kids also enjoyed it.
Hopefully we will see you in the future.
Many thanks
