We are based in the South West on Bristol city’s harbour side. As a result of that we are very used to working in challenging water environments such as the Bristol Channel and the River Avon. We also work regularly on inland waterways such as canals and fast flowing rivers.
We can create bespoke training courses to suit your needs depending on what type of craft and skills you want / need.
We have a variety of locks, inland or coastal river access and sheltered waters to train in.
