The Adventure Centre

Open 7 days a week our centre right on the seafront in Minehead offers a range of brilliant activities right out of the front door.

From here we run 1 hour Give it a Go sessions in Kayaking, Stand Up Paddleboarding, Outdoor Swimming, Beach Challenges and Kite Sports, as well as 2 hour Coastal Tours which you can do either on a Kayak or Stand Up Paddleboard.

On the water
Our Give it a Go sessions are an exciting introduction to Stand Up Paddleboarding or Fatyak Kayaking based around games, challenges and fun activities. These brilliant sessions will take place just off the beach in front of the centre, so even if you're not taking part this time you can watch from the beach and get some great photos.

Our 2 hour coastal tours are perfect for those want to see the historic harbour town of Minehead and the beautiful Exmoor hills from the sea. A few activities to learn to control tour craft and then it's off. There's stops where you can take part in activities and challenges or just back and keep a look out for local wildlife.

On the beach
When the tide is out we run 1 hour beach challenges and kite sports. The beach challenge is a fantastic range of activites designed for all the family, it's fun, engaging and interesting. Some challenges will make you think, some will get you out of breath and some might get you a little wet, but they are all great fun. Our Kite Sports is an exciting introduction to the fundamental skills and knowledge needed to safely fly a two line power kite. Both these session take place on the beach on Minehead seafront so even if you're not taking part you can get some amazing photos.

All of our 1 hour Give it a Go sessions are £15, this includes equipment needed for the activity; wetsuits, buoyancy aids etc. Our 2 hour sessions are £30 and again include all equpiment. All of our activities are lead by instructors.
