We went today for kayaking, having never been kayaking before I was a little apprehensive, however I was put at ease almost immediately by Dan, his professionalism was paramount, exceptional knowledge of the area, taking the trip that one step further! Highly recommended!

Despite booking 6 months in advance, we were disappointed to have our kayak foraging tour cancelled because Studland Sea School prioritised sending their forager to Bestival over honoring our booking. This proved especially inconvenient as we had also booked a non-refundable hotel solely to attend...More
