Common Questions

What ages are the school tours suitable for?

We start teaching children from age 8 upwards and the activity is perfect for children that can swim (with a buoyancy aid on). No other experience is required. We organise a lot of school outings for 5th and 6th classes and develop school programmes over multiple weeks for transition year groups.

We have children with special needs in our class. Can you accommodate us?

Our team of instructors have extensive experience working with children with special needs and bringing them out on the water. If a child or children in your class have special needs and you are wondering whether they would be able to participate in the activities, send us an email with your enquiry or give us a call on 01-6683945 and we are happy to help.

How much time do we have to plan for our trip and what start times do you offer?

For the half day event you need to plan 3 hours (half an hour for check-in and to get changed beforehand and another half an hour afterwards to get ready to leave. For the full day event you plan to be with us for 5 hours.

Full Day tours usually have an arrival time of 9.30 or 10am. Half Day Tours can run either in the morning with a similar arrival time or in the afternoon starting around lunchtime. We can plan this around your preference.

What do we need to bring and what are your facilities?

We have separate boys and girls changing rooms, toilets and showers on site. We also have lockers for valuables, but as we don’t take any responsibility for lost, stolen or damaged items, we recommend not to bring anything of value on your trip with us.

Participants needs: swimwear, a towel and an old pair of runners that they don’t mind getting wet.

We will provide them with wetsuits, buoyancy aids and helmets.

Do we need to sign a waiver?

Yes, all participants have to sign a waiver before they can go on a session with us. We offer a digital waiver that can be shared with parents by Whatsapp/Email or we can send you a pdf of the waiver to print out for the parents. Children without a waiver cannot participate in the activities. Here is a link to the text of the waiver (link to ts and cs page) (or better still we attach the pdf here and let them download it if they wish)

We are using public transport. How can we get to you?

We are located a 10 minute walk from the Grand Canal Dock DART station and a 10-15 minute walk from The Point LUAS stop. Bus routes that stop close by on Ringsend Road are 1, 15a, 15b, 15d, 47, 56a and 77a.
