Please note we have currently stopped ticket sales for our face to face events until May in light of the current Covid 19 situation. We are still operating but on an online basis where we have lots of training opportunities. Please follow us on our social media feeds. We are also instigating new approaches to training which may be of interest. This is a rapidly changing situation so please drop us an email to discuss the availability & current situation for future courses later in the season.
The idea of these sessions is to give you a taste of what you’ll experience during a course. Maybe you’re not sure about boating, maybe you want some time to prepare for a course, maybe you just want to get afloat in the Harbour with a friend or family member trying a new activity. These are relaxed, no pressure sessions and you’ll be able to take the helm under the guidance of a qualified instructor if you wish.
These sessions are usually booked by 2 people so bring a friend along and have a dedicated boat & instructor to yourselves. Occasionally we do offer individual spaces – if you can’t see what you’re looking for please contact us to discuss. If when you try to book it does not show availability for your ticket type, then it is likely we have sold out already but please do contact us if you’re keen on a particular date as we may be able to run an extra boat.
This particular session will last 2.5hrs and you should anticipate being afloat for approximately 2 hours. Depending on the weather, tides and the choice of the group we will explore various routes around the harbour exploring the channels round the back of the islands. Please note there is a speed limit within the harbour which we will abide by. If you’d like to see something in particular please speak to us in advance to ensure the tide will make it possible. As these sessions are aiming at beginners they will be wind dependent.
These sessions have been introduced as a way of providing access to boating for those who have not been afloat before and therefore stay fairly local. If you wish to leave the harbour, go faster or further afield please contact us discuss but it is likely you will be pointed to our RIB charter options.
Before booking: Please be aware that powerboating does require a certain level of fitness. Please check our website for further details on the boat used to ensure suitability. If either person in the party are under 18 please contact us to discuss. These sessions generally take place on a Wed.
Upon booking – you will receive an email from us to confirm availability – if this is not received you must contact us before turning up!
