Review of Coastal Voyager

Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: Life's a blast on Coastal Voyager! Trips to suit all from high speed, adrenaline fuelled sea blasts to gentle river trips with a stop for dinner. We also offer a three hour round trip to see the seals at Scroby sands and the wind farm before returning to Southwold. Keen skippers can also have a go at driving the Voyager under the instruction of our experienced skippers, a great gift or way to celebrate a special occasion. We also offer private hire and tailor made trips as well as taking commercial bookings.

Took my daughter of 10 and although slightly concerned prior to departure due to the speed of the boat we both had a fabulous time. It's not cheap but you know it's been worth it when you are still talking about the experience days and then weeks after.

Thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Really exciting! Also found the talk very informative. The addition of music is a superb idea. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

We will DEFINITELY be back. Just hoping for a day when the sea is rougher so that we can jump more waves!!

Great way to spend time in Southwold. A definite must. This was my second trip. Loved the addition of music to the trip. I think the short chat that the skipper gives is a fab idea, learned a lot about bones!! And it gave us an opportunity to swap seats and just confirm everyone happy. Well done skipper. Took a 6 year old, 12 year old , 15 year old and adults, all thoroughly enjoyed it. £ value (although of course we'd prefer it to be cheaper)

Whilst we recommend this high speed boat trip there are some issues to be aware of:

1. It isn't actually a 30 mins speedboat ride - in that the boat stops out at sea and the skipper of the boat gives you a 5 plus minute lecture about coastal erosion and wildlife....is this really necessary and is this what we booked ?

2. You are with other groups of people potentially and of course this may mean that you have some people / kids on the boat who don't like the fast ride - so the skipper slows down and doesn't do the crazy fast stuff....perhaps they should try and book adult only / family trips and try and keep the groups separate where possible ?

3. If the boat tips over - would you be ready for an emergency exit ? With hindsight - we didn't all think that we would have coped with getting out of the seatbelts. Perhaps more instruction and practice would have been useful to ensure safety.

Don't let the above comments out you off but we hope this will help them improve and for you all to enjoy the experience more.

After all - it's not cheap !!

We did the 'Blast' half-hour trip on a high-spec RIB. It's fast, bumpy and the boat takes off over the waves so you feel like you're flying, stomach up in the air, before coming down with a bump. The friendly skipper talked to us about the wildlife and coastal erosion in the area, and we had a fantastic view of the Southwald sea front. Highly recommended for a reasonable £26pp.
