One of the best places to take children or adults for water activities, take my brownies & guides each year, the team are amazing.
Took 25 cubs and scouts dragon boating and had a great time. I found the information before hand great and the staff on the day were very good. Well worth it!
Good time for little ones and big ones, katakanuing, sailing, wobble boarding and dragon boating.
We take our guides & rangers for evenings & courses. I've done my powerboat licence & love going there, instructors always helpful & very supportive of the children.
Great place to go for various water activities. For absolute beginners with equipment to suit to increasing your skills and abilities in a vast amount of different water activities, volunteers are really skilled fun and professional, great atmosphere.
