Great experience. Check in was quick and easy. The cliffs are a short walk from the premises. Safety was a top priority. I felt safe at all times and in no way rushed. The cliffs are challenging for a beginner but I managed 3 x...More

Was very disappointed with this event. The food was tasty but very minimal in serving size. For the amount paid I didn't think it was good value for money. We would have done better to make our own party just a few metres up the...More

Very Dissapointing Night 15/09/18. Inadequate briefing, unsafe access to kayaks, too many paddlers for one event! Spent more time floating and waiting whilst people capsized and were far behind. Got hit in the head, pushed, pulled which made the experience quite unsafe and uncomfortable. BBQ...More
