Please note: 

    • The time for the first session is advertised on the booking page.
    • It is important that you come to the first session.  This is because it  includes the main safety briefing and you will learn some key skills that we will then develop during our other sessions.   Before you book please check you are available to make the first session, otherwise we hope you can find another month to book onto that works for you.
    • Times for the rest of the course will be discussed and decided between the group and the instructor to take into account the tide times and what is easiest for the majority of participants on the course.
    • Course sessions are not transferable to another month, for example it is not possible for you to book onto a course in September take 2 sessions and then take the remaining 2 sessions in October.
