Our Approach

We operate under Boat trip Ltd

We started under Oyster Coast Watersports which is a RYA training centre based on the Long Beach to the East of the harbour. They will still use our boat for RYA advanced lessons. They rent out kayaks stand up paddle boards as well as small dinghies. We have now branched out by ourselves and bought our new 12 seater craft. Please come and experience a fantastic trip. Did you know our team won the presitigous "Trip advisor" top ten percent trips in the world.
