Family Rafting

Our family rafting activity is available throughout the school holidays and is suitable for the whole family. Each raft carries up to 6 people and we can lower the water level and speed so that the rapids are suitable for kids. This is a wonderful activity for the whole family to attend as it involves teamwork and lots of fun! (age 6+)

2. Family kayaking


If you want to learn the basics of how to kayak and canoe we have paddle taster sessions throughout the summer holidays. This session is suitable for parents and kids and is a great way to learn a new skill. All our taster sessions take place in a flat water pool, so you will have peace of mind that the activity takes place in a fun and safe environment.
