All our instructors are well-trained, experienced, enthusiastic and passionate about their sport. Our dedicated team will help you to learn, progress and enjoy your time on the water which ever activity you choose. The majority of our water sports team are local to Scilly or have done several seasons with us previously. So they have a wealth of local knowledge to act as your guide and tutor.

Whether you wish to “just have a go” in one of our taster sessions, perhaps a refresher or require a structured course with certification from a national governing body. We can tailor make a package of sessions to suit your needs and fit around your holiday plans.

We offer one-to-one tuition for a private bespoke lesson to fast track you through the skill levels. Group sessions are an excellent way to meet like-minded enthusiasts and have fun whilst learning from each other’s triumphs or unexpected swims.

We are a Royal Yachting Association recognised teaching establishment and so offer RYA certificated courses in:

The RYA scheme follows a national syllabus, so you can continue your progression through the scheme at another RYA centre. The RYA syllabus is divided into sections, which are signed off when completed to achieve a specific certificate. Attendance of a course does not guarantee certification; this will depend on each student’s ability and progression.

We are also a British Stand-Up Paddleboard Association (BSUPA) recognised teaching establishment.

For kayak taster sessions:

We operate a strict instructor to student ratio both for your safety and to ensure a high standard of instruction throughout the course. We take customer safety very seriously and have a fleet of safety craft ready to give assistance if required.
