Whats the aim of the Activity?

The aim of the raft building activity is to build a raft using planks of wood, barrels and rope lashings, to make a safe, floating platform which will carry your group on a lake or other open expanse of water.

What does the activity include?

The activity includes all specialist equipment including a buoyancy aid, instruction, and waterproof clothing and wetsuits where required.

Where does the experience take place?

We have venues throughout the north west of England, mainly in The Lake District, Cumbria

What should I wear?

We supply a wetsuit (where required) and jacket but on top wear something warm like a fleece, preferably something old and loose fitting. Footwear should ideally be canoeing type shoes or boots but trainers with grip will do.

How long should I allow for this experience?

Our half day sessions last for 3 hours from start to finish including setting up and derigging time.

When does the activity take place?

We are available 7 days a week for raft building all year round.

Are there any restrictions?

There are no real restrictions, for individuals with disabilities we will choose a venue to suit your needs and extra staffing can be made available on request.

What about the weather?

The weather would need to be really bad to stop our sessions; if it turns bad on the day we would try to have an alternative activity on hand.

Can I bring spectators?

You can bring spectators; we would give them a safety talk and advise them of a safe area to view the activity. Once the session is running it is sometimes difficult for spectators to follow the activity as you will be moving around the lake.

What else do I need to know?

We are happy to advise you and give answers to any questions on anything you need to know before making a booking, please give our friendly staff a call on 01257474467 or e-mail us at [email protected].
