Summer Activity Holiday Notes
While the activities, dates & timings for all our summer activity holidays are given in good faith, they are subject to change for both operational, safety and weather reasons as certain activities (especially water sports) are highly weather & sea conditions dependent. We cannot therefore guarantee that any one activity will always be on any one particular day, but will always endeavour with regard to the conditions at that time to re-schedule in order to safely accommodate everything as best we can – If this is not possible an alternative will be offered.
Please note (especially in off peak season) that provision of some activities are subject to minimum numbers.
