“Amazing way to explore Devon”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

We visited Sea Sports twice during our stay in Teignmouth.

The weather was lovely and Sea Sports always looked buzzing so we decided to hire a couple of kayaks to explore.

It cost us £10 for a single for an hour or £15 for a double. We took a couple of singles followed by a double as a fair few of us went out.

Was great to venture out to the Salty where the shallow water enables you to get out and collect shells or mussels. The channel is quite busy, deep and has a strong current but we didn't feel in any danger at any point.

The staff are great at making sure you're enjoying yourself and regularly have a nosy out to ensure you're safe. We did make a member of staff zip out on a rib as we tried to tow a member of our party on some kayaks - comforting to know that they actually do take safety seriously. Must have looked as though we were in trouble.

Lots of other activities on offer too such as training courses, paddle boards etc all at reasonable prices.

We did a 3 hour introductory sea kayaking trip and it was ace! Our instructor - Mark - was great, really competent, encouraging and gave us some great tips. We really got the feeling this place will go the extra mile - they made us a nice cuppa after our session, let us have a quick try out of a paddle board (it was a quiet day, don't expect this all the time I guess) too. And then, on the way home owner Sue called us to say we'd left a bag behind. She then offered to send it up with some relatives who were driving to near where we lived. Like i say, these guys go the extra mile! A great time, we hope to go back soon!! Thanks.

“Great Fun Paddle-boarding”
Reviewed 25 May 2012

Just had an afternoon learning to paddleboard with Sea Sports, Sue was a fantastic teacher, 2 children picked it up immediately, I took a little longer and my husband managed it eventually. Really good fun for a family activity. We're hoping to go on an expedition up the river next time. Can't wait! Thank you.

“Watersports Training”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

I did my windsurfing instructor qualification with Sue and Tim. It was a great week, good fun but loads of learning too. They run a really professional operation that's female and newcomer friendly - none of that macho nonsense you sometimes get with windsurfing etc. A band happened to be playing in the square outside their place when I was there which was a beautiful setting by the water.
Highly recommend to anyone wanting to take to the water in a new mode of transport - or those looking for serious training - Tim knows his stuff.
