About your activities
Get ready to see your students blossom. Our outdoor adventure activities provide challenge, excitement and a huge sense of achievement. From learning to stand up on a paddle board to leaping into the sea on a coasteering session, these experiences provide massively rewarding outcomes. We provide schools with a full programme of activities for the duration of their school trip.
About your instructors
You're in safe hands. Land & Wave instructors make sure you have a safe, enjoyable time. You'll notice they are very experienced and tend to be more mature than some staff you find in bigger activity centres. We pay our instructors well and only employ lovely humans.

About the kit
It's important that you feel safe with us. Rigorous kit checks and careful maintenance are a daily occurrence and we update our boats, ropes and paddle boards regularly. We provide a well-fitting wetsuit and buoyancy aid for every watersports activity.
What to bring
For activities on dry land, wear comfortable layers and sturdy footwear such as trainers or walking boots. For water based activities, we recommend wearing swimwear under your clothes to make getting changed nice and easy. Bring an old pair of trainers to wear in the water - Crocs are REALLY not suitable.
