After nearly 30 years of adventuring, we are proud of our excellent safety record

Safe adventures, great kit at Preseli Venture

We’ve been taking people adventuring on the Pembrokeshire coast for nearly 30 years, and your safety is always our top priority.

An important part of our safety management is being part of and accredited by UK recognised bodies who issue guidelines, inspect and certify activity providers as providing safe adventures in the outdoors. We are proud to be accredited by these organisations:

Adventure Activities Licensing Service (AALS), Learning Outside the Classroom (LotC), British Canoeing, and Adventure Mark.

In addition to the above we also have Public Service Vehicle (PSV) qualified minibus drivers who safely drive the short distance from the eco lodge centre to the activity venues nearby on the coast.

Preseli Venture hold full public liability insurance of £10 million and just ask if you require a copy of this certificate.

The Preseli Venture safety statement

So safety is our first priority, followed by care for the natural environment and oodles of fun for you, that’s what we are all about.High energy natural environments such as the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park are constantly changing; wind, rain, surf, ocean swells, gravity, wildlife and multi-tactile surfaces combine to produce an environment from which risk can never be totally eliminated.  We at Preseli Venture assume that our clients understand that there is always some risk involved in the activities that we provide.

The exhilaration of exploring such environments is what Preseli Venture is all about. We seek to minimise and manage these risks by providing relevant equipment and experienced, qualified guides who are supplied with up to the minute weather forecasts, trained in risk assessments and operate according to governing body best practise for each adventure and our in house procedures.  It is up to you to listen carefully to what they say, and to act upon their instructions.

We believe that adventure, in all its diverse forms, is an essential component of many people’s lives. Listen, stay safe and have a fantastic experience.

My friends and I spent the weekend at the Preseli Venture Eco Lodge and participated in three of their activities and it was super awesome! It was an unforgettable weekend, the vegan conscious employees were superb. I’d recommend this place 100%.
