School programme

We have products available to help Wellington school students experience a range of ocean sports.

Experience sailing, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding.

We have two keelboats, eight stand up paddle boards and fifteen kayaks specifically set up for children to experience ocean sports on Wellington Harbour. You can choose just one ocean sport. Or a combination of sports with all sessions based out of the Wellington Ocean Sports Centre in Oriental Bay.

Flexible participation options

You can choose to spend two hours, half a day or a full day experiencing ocean sports… the choice is yours. You can choose just one session or two sessions.

Depending on numbers you can split your group so some students try one ocean sport while others try another or alternatively everyone can do the same sport.

Safety and wet weather gear provided

We will proved your students with a set of wet weather gear and a lifejacket. Students need to bring polypropylene and fleecy type casual clothing and soft soled closed toe footwear. Students are not permitted to wear jeans or track suit pants for kayaking and Sup boarding. Please wear shorts or sports type clothing for these options. All students are required to bring a complete change of clothes as they tend to enjoy falling and jumping in. Students may bring a wetsuit if they have one, but this is optional.

Risk management taken care of

We have risk management plans for each of our sailing, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding programmes. We will provide you with the appropriate RAM forms for whichever of the options you choose.

Delivered by experienced instructors

At all times students will be under the guidance of one of our ocean sport instructors. All our instructors are qualified with their respective sport.
