Start – Instructor led activities

Our START instructor-led activities are categorised into ‘Active’ and ‘Pool’ sessions, which isn’t to imply that the pool-based activities are anything other than super-energetic. Whichever session you book, you’d better be ready for action…

Pool activities

Our aquatic activities include some of the following:

Sea Scooters (1hr/ 1.5 hrs)

Sea Scooters are a great way to have fun in the water. In this session you’ll learn the basics of using a Sea Scooter, which is a handheld device that propels you through the water.

Sea Scooters are not suitable for non-swimmers and can only be used by those aged nine years old and over.

Inflatable canoes (1hr/1.5 hrs)

Have fun in the pool while learning some basic canoeing skills. There is no minimum age for these sessions.

Water Walkerz (3-5 mins on the water)

Can you stay standing as you bob around on the surface of the pool inside the Waterwalker? There’s only one way to find out.

For this activity each participant books a 15-minute time slot, in which they will have 3-5 mins in the Waterwalker.
