Reviews and feedback


“I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic 1.5 hours we had on Saturday. Firstly it was lovely that it was just the 3 of us and so we could learn, have fun and relax together as a family. Very special. It was so reassuring that the instructor (Kate) kept a very close eye on our 11 year old throughout. The location is fantastic and the little facts about the ships and the dock was also an added bonus. Thank you for providing the sunshine too…..we will be back!”

“Did the session with my best friend and her 16 and 14 year old daughters, didn’t stop smiling the entire time! Nick was our instructor and was great, clear instruction and a lovely calm manner, gave us all confidence. It was a great, fun and highly enjoyable session and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!”
