family fun & frolics - summer holidays!

Some snapshots of the exploratory coasteering session yesterday, with emphasis definitely on fun!!

The rock colours and caves were fantastic, and a little bit of swell to make things exciting! :)

Plenty of squeals of delight, echoeing out of the caves and especially on the jumps...

Sea Kayaking Trip for absolute beginners - taking in the West Coast of the Isle of Man at a leisurely pace...

Our activities are popular with visitors to the Island, often relatives over for short breaks, using adventures with us as means to view the Isle f Man from a different perspective.

Its terrific to see so many folk having fun, in safe healthy and active pursuits, and many thanks for all your kind feedback :)
See you on the water again soon

School Enrichment Week - Adventure Sports

Coasteering with the group was an amazing experience today - just to watch the group dynamics change from the start of the sea kayaking trip to the end of the cave exploration section.

kayaking in thunder... Isle of Man

Last nights Evening Paddle set off from Fenella Beach at 7pm in perfect conditions. Flat calm and sheltered from any wind. It was the first or second time for the students, many of whom joined the Discover Sea Kayaking Course this month. The course id flexible to use the best conditions and provide varied experiences over the 4 session course.

Look forward to seeing you all on Sunday morning for the next part of the course :)
