My daughter, who is twelve, had a whale of a time on the Buzz Cuckmere Adventure week.  She had a great time kayaking, den-building and orienteering and particularly enjoyed stand-up paddle-boarding.  She said that the staff were really friendly and enthusiastic, and wanted to go back for more, so that we ended up sending her to another session of kayaking the following week.  When she got there for the second time she was very impressed that the staff remembered her name and welcomed her back.  Again she had a great time and I think she will want to return again in future holidays.  Thank you very much to all at Buzz Active!



“I wanted to pass on how much my 8 year old son enjoyed the Half term Taster Sessions. This was in large part due to the wonderful staff and the friendly, professional and supportive atmosphere that you and the team create. The sessions were astonishingly good value for money and provided a high standard of safety and quality equipment.”

Katharine Finnigan, Parent

“Just wanted to pass on our thanks to Buzz – especially to our coaches, Craig and Hannah – for our paddleboard session. It was brilliant fun. We all really enjoyed it and it was definitely a highlight of ‘Helen’s Hen Day’”

Claire, 'hen party organiser’

“My two boys (aged 12 and 14) did some joint private sailing sessions. They LOVED it! Their coach, Harrison, was ‘the best’ and they’ve both come on leaps and bounds.  So thank you Buzz, for the fun, excitement – oh, and the sailing!”

The Telford family

“The offsite visits service is excellent. It’s great value for money and help is always forthcoming and quick. We highly recommend it.”
