When completed they rafts were launched to great excitement and boarded after being kitted out with life jackets and helmets. All aboard for a race around the island. Great... More

Can't rate the customer support highly enough as we were bought the lesson as a gift 2 years ago, but I fell pregnant so they allowed us to keep postponing it after complications, even past the expiry date. The instructor, Sophie, was a great teacher and made the lesson really fun with some games. I'd recommend the archery to anyone... More

The activity we did was Archery. We were a party of ten adults (of all ages and abilities) and the weather was a bit damp, but we had a great time. The instructor Lee was great at explaining what to do and the safety aspects. He was very calm and patient. He devised games and competitions to do as teams... More
