We booked 2 x boats as a hen do activity and it was just the perfect day. Whitestrand were absolutely fantastic and extremely helpful. We had a brilliant day and when I’m next in Salcombe I will definitely be using them again.

Very friendly service and really flexible with making bookings. The briefing was excellent prior to going out in the boat and the boat itself was in very good condition. Overall a lot of fun and highly recommended.

Not being boat people, the key thing was that everything was explained helpfully. The lady at the desk was fantastic, and I would thoroughly recommend Whitestrand for those who want to see the estuary but are not boating regulars.

Fantastic friendly staff, very helpful and knowledgeable. We rented a boat for 4 adults and 4 children. We didn't pre book, but managed to get a slot later in the day, as they were were busy. Good to prebook in the summer to ensure you...More
