Activities

Do you need to know about medical conditions?

It is essential that you let us know about any medical condition or injury when booking and that you also let your instructor know on the starting day of your day. This information will remain completely confidential but is essential to allow us to tailor our activities to suit you and to ensure the safety of other group members.

How fit do we need to be?

Because of our personal approach we will discuss your experience and fitness levels with you. From this we will be able to advise you on suitable objectives and deliver a day which suits everyones ability.

If someone can’t swim, can he/she still take part in watersports?

Yes, all watersport participants wear buoyancy aids. If anyone has difficulty with swimming 50m unaided, we do ask to be told this in advance so that our instructors can be made aware and can offer that person additional supervision and support.

Is previous experience necessary for some of your more specialised activities?

No previous experience is necessary. All our staff are fully qualified through UK National Governing Bodies and they will be able to make sure everyone is learning while having loads of fun!

Each activity is different. We will provide you with a full kit list when booking. All technical clothing and equipment is provided.

The cost of your activity day will include all instruction and technical equipment. If requested, we can also provide breakfasts and packed lunches.

Whats not included in the price?

Where will we get changed?

We do not operate from an activity centre or building. Please be aware that this may mean you will need to get changed in the outdoors. This may mean in your car, behind a bush or in private behind a towel.

Where will we meet the instructors?

We do not operate from an activity centre or building. Your instructor will either meet you at your activity venue or at a local cafe with all of the equipment needed for the day.
