"We had a private group surfing lesson (one adult and two teenagers, all total beginners) and had an amazing experience from start to finish! The instructor was brilliant - we all managed to stand up, it really made our summer!"

"Mum booked us a lesson with these guys and we had a brilliant time. Our instructor Dave was great, we did a warm up first, on the sand techniques and her was in the water with us all the time, encouraging and supporting. Lots of surf schools there but would recommend wavhunters "

"My partner and I had a 2 hr private surf lesson. I had only surfed 2 times before and he had never surfed. Alex our instructor was brilliant and had us confident and standing on the boards within no time! He even took footage on our gopro which was amazing. All the guys at the surf shop were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend using wavehunters whether you're a beginner or need your technique fine tuning! We had an awesome time and are already looking forward to joining again. Thanks guys! "

"One hour sea safari with my three grandchildren,fabulous, we saw dolphins which played around the boat for ages. The ride itself was thrilling and the two guys fun and knowledgeable. Highly recommended. "

Sue H, Thu 1st August 2019

"Spent a brilliant 2 hours out on a safari trip today. Lucky enough to see seals basking, a dolphin, lots of birds, although sadly no puffins. Thoroughly great way to see wildlife, and skipper and newly-qualified Matt made the trip really enjoyable. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic team. Would highly recommend Wavehunters."

Kay J, Wed 22nd May 2019

"Cheers wavehunters, had a brilliant afternoon out after winning a seat in your instagram competition. Cannot thank you enough. Thoroughly well planned and executed sea safari. From the moment we took to the water I knew all of us where in for a real treat. Once out of the estuary your guides showed us many of Cornwall’s sea birds and costal wildlife. Well worth the trip. Will be bringing the entire family out soon. Know my sons would absolutely love to come. Keep up the good work"

"The most amazing 1 hour safari today. Life long ambition to see wild dolphins accomplished. Wonderful staff, would highly recommend! "

Tabitha Robinson, Tue 30th October 2018

"Fantastic sea safari from Rock. Loads of wildlife including seals and a school of dolphins which was very special as they spent a good 20mins with the boat. Rob the captain was particularly knowledgeable and made the trip very enjoyable. Would thoroughly recommend it."

Michael, Sarah And Harriet, Tue 21st August 2018

"Our 2 hour sea safari with Simon as our skipper was excellent value for money and an absolute highlight of our annual trip; Simon was charming, knowledgeable and could not have been more accommodating and we were blessed with numerous fascinating sightings including dolphins. Will definitely book again. "

"Took a 2 hour paddle board lesson .friendly and thoroughly fun ,but most of all completely professional across the board .If your ever near Polzeath please try them out you will not be disappointed. "

Steve Clark , Wed 8th August 2018

"Polzeath Wave Hunters has such a great bunch of people - happy, chatty and cool (cool is the quote from my 12 year old daughter!). We had 3 family surf lessons with Dave and Issac and they were brilliant. Both guys did an amazing job at tailoring the session to adults and kids and we all succeeded (some more than others!!) On the last day Issac really pushed my daughters taking them further out into the sea and their summary of our holiday was ‘best surfing ever’ thank you Wave Hunters! "

Jo F, Fri 27th July 2018

"Millie's SUP Yoga class was such an incredible experience. I've done Yoga before but never on the ocean so combing my two loves really worked. It's the ultimate core work out and ideal for mindfulness. "

Lauren W, Fri 20th July 2018

"2 hour Sea Safari Sept 19th was a fabulous experience,we saw a small pod of Risso Dolphins,Gannet,Manx Shearwater,Bathing Seals.Personnally I would have been happy to pay £39 for the informative guide to the area we visited and the sheer exillaration of the trip.Thank you Wavehuters"

David Ransome, Sun 24th September 2017

"The weather was not great for yearly Cornish trip, but the Wavehunters team really kept us going, what ever the weather these guys were super up beat. we loved our surfing and our sea safari, we even went twice. great fun thanks"

Jack Walston, Mon 14th August 2017

"August 2017 Did the 2 hour sea safari trip with my husband and 15 year old daughter, she loved it!!! We saw loads of dolphins which swam next to the boat and sun fish !! It was magical even with the choppy sea! Rich our guide was great it made our holiday Thanks wavehunters x"

Sally D, Mon 7th August 2017

"Went out two consecutive days this week and saw dolpins both days as well as a seal and a blow hole in a cave. I think the skippers name was Rich and he was very knowledgeable, interesting and friendly. He also knew that the Dolphins were what people wanted to see and was happy to let us have a long watch. We previously went out with Andy in May and he too was knowledgeable and friendly. Wouldnt go out with anyone else now after having been with Wavehunters. Thank you. "

Debbie Childs, Thu 3rd August 2017

"Without doubt a highlight of our holiday in Cornwall. My two boys, aged 11 and 17, loved it. The sea was choppy but this added to the trip and we felt safe with the expert and knowledgeable Andy, who did his best to find some wildlife for us. Who knew Sunfish visit U.K. waters? This is a must do for any visit to the area. "

Stephen O'connell, Fri 28th July 2017

"Thank you Max ,and Issac an absolutely brilliant experience paddle boarding yesterday.Kids and adults thought you guys were fantastic."

Victoria Tucker, Wed 26th July 2017

"My boyfriend and I were slightly nervous about surfing as we hadn't done anything like it before but thought we couldn't come to Cornwall and not try surfing. We had nothing to worry about, the instructors were fantastic and really explained the basics well. Before we knew it we were loving our time in the sea and within one lesson could stand up for a whole second. We cant wait to get back out into that sea after our muscles have stopped aching, its a great fun way to work out your whole body."

Sara, Wed 19th July 2017

"Had a beginners surf lesson on the 26th of June 2017 courtesy of a birthday present from my Wife (58 already !). The two instructors, Jo' and Tamsin were excellent, not only covering all elements of how to get up on your board (which all of our group managed) but some good knowledge of how waves form, the potential danger of rip tides and overall safety advise. They stayed with the group whilst in the sea and were on hand to give advise and recommendations to enable us to at least get a real taste for the sport. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience."

Pete Mcg'., Tue 27th June 2017

"We were nervous when we arrived at the surf school, my wife is not a strong swimmer, the guys put as totally at ease and we even managed to stand up (for a second!) we booked for one session and upgraded to the three day course. So much fun and such a great location."

Martin Jones, Tue 13th June 2017

"We went out on a 2hr boat ride, which was an incredible experience that we would recommend for everyone. Beautiful, dramatic coastline and lots of interesting snippets of local history as we pulled up into stunning little coves and old ports on the way. We were lucky enough to see 3 seals sunbathing on rocks and bobbing in the sea, which was lovely. Also the ladies that were organising the tours, could not have been nicer and went above and beyond to ensure we all got to go out together. Highly recommend that you don't miss out on this incredible experience. 10 out of 10!"

Oliver M, Tue 6th June 2017

"Andy and his team are legends!!! We come back for more and more every year. Best beaches and surf team I know!!"

Sarah Hay, Sat 20th May 2017

"Our boys (7&5) have been learning with Wavehunters for the last two years and have loved it. They can't wait for half term so they can get back in the surf!"

Tim Marshall, Sat 20th May 2017

"Our daughter had her first ever surf lesson and experience of surfing....... something she loved so much, got her standing up on the board! Great instructions and guidance from her instructor. Great value for money. Gave her confidence and an amazing experience. "

Katie J, Church, Tue 28th February 2017

"The surf lesson was great fun! Johnny was friendly and full of energy, which helped me feel confident and enthused about the experience. There were seven of us in the group which felt like a reasonable number of people to be teaching at one time, and the two hour session made me feel much more positive about attempting it alone next time."

Tom Shilton, Sun 26th February 2017

"Brilliant two hour sea safari today, the wonderful weather and calm seas helped, but also felt totally relaxed as the rib raced across the water. Our guide clearly knew the local area and coastline, full of interesting information, and we did indeed see puffins, Dolphins, a seal, and even a bizarre sun fish! Highly recommended. "

Alistair M, Fri 24th February 2017

"Our skipper for the trip was Andy, also a helmsman at the Port Isaac lifeboat station, who has a wealth of knowledge of the marine environment and local area. Andy took us out for a two hour trip where we saw a lot of bird life but sadly no dolphins (each of the other trips that day had been lucky). The trip was peppered with stops to hear stories of the land and people as well as the sea, which our kids (age range 3-6 ish) loved. One of your younger ones fell as sleep despite the chop. Loved it!"

Robbie B, Tue 14th February 2017

"Andy and the team had all our kids standing up within 30 mins of the lesson starting. Our kids (range 5-8) enjoyed their relaxed style and their use of other games kept everyone warm and engaged throughout the two hours. I watched from the beach with my 3 year old but would have preferred to have got stuck in with some of the other parents who either took part in the lesson or were just getting involved. I didn't think my five year old would stick it out but she did - thanks wave hunters! "

Andy M, Mon 16th January 2017

"Jack and his team were brilliant. Jack managed to engaged the various ages of our family: from a reluctant teenager, enthusiastic adolescent, unsure 10 year old and middle aged mother. We all were able to enjoy the waves and thinking of coming back for more. Even my 70 year old mother enjoyed chatting to the 'guys' in the hut and playing with the surfing spaniel Lola. "
