Activities are subject to change, depending on weather and other factors, so please contact us in the week before to confirm details. We start all sessions with a safety briefing, a demonstration and a chance to practice.

If your child is aged between 6 and 8 years-old you should arrange to visit the centre before booking so they can try on safety equipment, such as buoyancy aids and harnesses.

Adults accompanying children must stay on site – why not buy a ticket to take part too?
