Each tent comes with electric points so you can charge your phones and cameras to capture the memories of your adventure.

We will head out on to the water where we will give you some coaching covering basic skills kayaking forwards backwards sideways and the brace stroke to help you from capsizing . Once you feel confident on the water we will head off to explore the Jurassic coast. Swanage bay is over 3km in distance with an old and new pier to explore . We have resident dolphins and seals who show up during the summer months so keep your eyes out as they come over to play.
At the end of Swanage Bay we head towards the white chalky cliffs where there is a series of caves and stacks to explore with nesting sea birds including peregrine falcons. Our Jurassic coast sea kayaking trip takes you to the UNESCO world heritage site of Old Harry rocks with its giant archway carved through time. You will get the opportunity to stop at the landmark to explore . This is a great place for your photos to capture your memories forever.
Depending on the groups ability we can carry on to the sandy beaches of Studland for lunch and a break before making the trip back along the coastline to Swanage. This trip is 16km in distance so you will need a reasonable level of fitness to complete the day .
Once back at the campsite, where we have hot showers and toilets, we will start the evenings' entertainment and a BBQ with an Axe throwing competition and camp fire into the evening.

On arrival at the beach, we will receive some coaching on sea kayaking skills before heading along Ringstead ledges and kayak our way along to Durdle door. On route, there are lots of arches and cave to explore. This stretch of coastline is perfect for rock hopping.
