Due to our coastal location on the iconic Isle of Wight, watersports activities are extremely popular. All of our watersports sessions are carried out by qualified instructors. Weather, tides and sea/river conditions may restrict watersports' availability. During the week in high season (May to July) Adventure Choice will not include watersports unless the upgrade is booked. In low season we aim to programme watersports where possible but they are subject to availability due to high demand unless the upgrade is booked.
