Faced with organising a team building day for 60 NHS workers I got quotes from several companies. I chose Newquay watersports Centre and am so glad I did. From the first moment they gave me confidence, kept in contact, understood our requirements and organised the day brilliantly.
It was fantastic!! A morning of brilliant strategic team building games on the beach with the incentive of winning a team prize to contribute to a raft build. Engaged, enthusiastic and plentiful instructors helped and encouraged people to step out of their comfort zone. Then a well organised and tasty lunch catering for a variety of dietary needs. A hilarious raft race around the harbour followed but also catering for those that different want to get wet with those being part of the design team.

Mid afternoon saw people having the choice of activities including SUP, Giant SUP, Kayaking and coasteering as well as archery. The encouragement of Sam and his team meant that 45 people were in the sea and the smiles and laughter was heartwarming.

My whole team loved the whole day and we went back to work the next day with a glow and a spring in our step, I can't thank Sam and the whole team enough for a really wonderful day. I am not sure we would be able to top it in the future!

A couple of the things that made this a great trip were down to luck: the weather was fantastic and the group which I was joining didn’t show up- so I got a 121 tour at the Standard price. But that shouldn’t detract from how well Duncan guided me around the headlands Of Newquay, providing interesting local info and some useful sea kayaking tips. Had a delightful morning exploring coves and spotting seals basking in the sun before paddling back to base. On the practical side, all equipment was provided (apart from shoes) and a full safety briefing was included.
A great way to spend a couple of hours

Thank Andy M

Excellent morning with Josh, a great tutor who gave me the confidence to enjoy a new venture and had me paddle boarding in a very short time. Highly recommend Josh as a trainer, he has lots of patience and an excellent approach who is very knowledgeable about his professional and surrounding environment.... Also great value for your money.... Keep up the good work and looki g forward to more paddle boarding

I was lucky enough to come back to this area and spent 4 days doing activities from this centre.
Sam, Duncan, Scott, Josh and Grant were all phenomenal instructors - great at teaching what we needed to know and really encouraging when we were in the water. They made every activity great fun while pushing us out of our comfort zones at times to make the most of every activity. They all know the area and the local wildlife incredibly well and are happy to pass on their knowledge and use it to ensure that we got the best experience possible.
All kit except towels and bathers is provided and it was all great quality and in good condition.
I cannot recommend this centre highly enough if you're in the area.
