What you’ll need to bring with you…

All specialist equipment is provided for your adventures – but there are afew bits and bobs you’ll need to make sure that you bring along.

If you have a waterproof camera, bring it along – it’s great to have stuff to post on facebook to show everyone how brave/amazing/photogenic you are!  Alternatively we sell disposable waterproof cameras at the lodge.  We sometimes take our camera along on sessions and post the piccies up on our blog if they’re good – keep a look out for your mug on the PV blog.

All of the downloadable info sheets regarding ‘How to find us and what to bring’ can be found here.

What you’ll need to bring for adventure days, adventure weekends and sea kayaking courses:
