We Offer a mixture of 3 and 5 night activity and educational breaks in the middle of the Pembrokeshire Coast, Britain’s only coastal National Park. Our Base is in St Davids Britain’s smallest city and home of the magnificent 12th Century Cathedral. Being on the most westerly tip of wales we are surrounded on 3 sides by water, which has its own unique and fascinating tidal flows, islands and community.
The area is not only visually stunning with its crystal clear water, blue flag beaches, hidden coves and magical villages it is also steeped in history, is of geological importance and array with unique aerial and marine wildlife.
We use this natural beauty as a playground for an adrenaline packed activity break that will leave any young person with a positive experience and memory for life.
Whether you are taking part in a Rib ride, surfing lesson, Kayaking, Rock pooling or Coast path walking our guides will not only make it enjoyable but educational with the children (and group leaders) learning about the history and legend of the area, water safety such as how rip tides work and how to keep safe, the migrating, breading and feeding habits of the wildlife and even what fauna you can eat and not! To name but a few.
This information and learning is very much interactive and built into our fun sessions in a way that many young people react to better.
