We have recently returned from our 9th visit to Outdoor Adventure. Every year we are impressed with the facilities and catering but, above all, the excellent instruction our children receive from the experienced and dedicated staff. Our children are still buzzing from the amazing time they had. Past students even still talk about what a great week they remember at... More

Our daughters had the best time learning to surf with one of your instructors Lewis. Esther actually managed to stand up and 'ride' the waves. The whole experience was definitely one we would recommend - the booking was so easy, the beach was wonderful and our instructor was superb - he even managed to carry on the lesson after treading...

What a fantastic experience with Lewis and Dan Coasteering in Bosinney bay. Attention to detail was superb. A great bunch of people with whom we had such a laugh. Both Exhausting and Exhilirating at the same time. The washing machine experience was fab. Thanks again for a great morning. Jacqui & Will

Our children aged 12 and 14 took part in a surfing lesson and also a coasteering adventure. The booking process was via a simple phone call with confirmations by email. The surfing instructor, Lewis, was brilliant - encouraging them and helping them to put his advice into practice. He seemed genuinely thrilled for them when they succeded! The coasteering intructors,... More

Went with 2 15 old girls, one of whom had never done anything like this before and totally loved it. Top tip, bring a flask of hot chocolate for afterwards, you will be very tired and the... More

Booked surfing lessons for two teenage boys who hadn't surfed before. Booked online a week before and this was a really simple process which was followed up by a reminder text from them.

Outdoor A, Manager at Outdoor Adventure Residential Activity Centre, responded to this review

Dear David I am sorry that you were left disappointed. Our booking system automatically generates an email on the morning of the event to remind our customers, however I can see why this would then be frustrating to have a cancellation call 10 mins later. We will look into this further. Due to the nature of the activity and changing... More
