Terms and conditions - please read before booking your sessions:

As we're sure you can appreciate we have introduced several changes to ensure both client and staff safety.

• A minimum 2m distance will be kept between the instructor and participant at all times, where possible. Around the Centre signage and markings will be in place to assist with distancing.
• All sessions will be a maximum of 6 persons plus the instructor, we will also stagger session times to minimise overcrowding.
• All payments are online and in advance of the session, with all participants submitting full medical details and contact information. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate walk-in bookings or cash payments at this stage. We will be asking for details of all participants to assist the NHS Track and Trace service if required.
• Participants must be able to put on/take off a wet-suit and a buoyancy aid unassisted.
• If you can, please bring your own wet-suit. We will continue to provide wet-suits.
• We will provide everything else needed to get afloat including buoyancy aids, spray tops and watersports equipment which will be cleaned before and after the session. Please note that as a temporary measure we are introducing an upper weight limit of 120kg or 18 stone for participants. Participants must be able to be accommodated in our largest buoyancy aid.
• Please note that currently there is no access to shared changing facilities, including showers. There will be toilet access and bag storage so please only bring essentials with you. Please arrive in your beach wear.
• We have introduced a new hygiene regime; your instructor will ask you to sanitise your hands before starting the session and we will be cleaning equipment and vessels rigorously between sessions.
• Finally, please be respectful of the steps we have put in place, our staff members and other clients. Individuals choosing to not comply with these steps will be required to leave the activity session.
