School Tours

 

Our School Tour Programmes have proven immensely popular with Primary and Secondary Schools and offer a unique experience in a fun and safe environment.

For groups of 10 or more students we offer a mix of activities from our range of kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, sailing and windsurfing. The activities that we will arrange for your group will depend on the weather conditions on the day but please do let us know if you have preferences.

Together with our partner Wakedock we can also include cable wakeboarding as an activity in your session which will increase the price per person slightly. If you are interested in the wakeboarding option, you can have a look at this Wakedock video on Vimeo As an alternative to wakeboarding and more suitable for bigger groups we can offer ‘ringo rides’ on the zipline for up to 3 people at a time.

All activities are easy to pick up and do not require any previous experience and we will teach your students through games and fun. Our No. 1 goal is to make sure that your students have a really memorable fun day out!

We offer two different types of sessions, a half day (3 hours) or a full day (5 hour) event.

Sample itineraries of what students can expect on each type of programme are outlined below:
