I did the Half Day Old Harry Rocks Kayaking Trip (3 hours) with Josh and the team. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Felt very safe. Would certainly consider booking something else in the future with Studland Sea School.

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!
