What the Instructors and Kids say about the courses...

Summer Course Structure

Students are assigned to groups according to their age, as years of experience has taught us that the children get the most out of the course when training with their peers. Students are grouped as follows 4-6 years, 7-10 years, 11-14 years and 15-17 years. Within these groups the students are then sub divided according to their experience. We provide all essential gear for the course, boats and buoyancy aids, while wetsuits can be hired by the week. In addition our instructors are very experienced, we have a clubhouse facility with changing rooms and we are fully insured. We have an excellent safety record and pride ourselves on our superb reputation.
