Isle of Wight Adventure Activities are an established and independent private organisation run as a ‘not for profit’ company with the aim of promoting the outdoor adventure activities of the Isle of Wight to everyone. All of our profits go back into developing and supporting access to outdoor adventure activities for all.
Our visitors include individuals, families, groups, local and national companies and local authorities who are looking for adventure days, activity holidays, outdoor experiences and team-building events on the Isle of Wight.
We have forged links with only the best independent providers of outdoor activities on the Isle of Wight and offer a free information service from our booking centre where visitors to the Island can book all their outdoor activities direct through us.
As a part of our support and commitment to the Isle of Wight, every year we offer a place on a one year apprentice scheme where a young person from the Island can work with us to develop skills, qualifications and experience.
We have been inspected and are approved by the Adventure Activities Licensing Service (L6477/R1574) the British Canoe Union and many more bodies – This guarantees high standards of safety and delivery – Our Director, Owen, acts and is recognised by AALS and the BCU as technical advisor for other providers and he works with both small and multi-site national organisations advising on technical matters and training staff.
Owen has trained the staff in all the local centres; including, Liquid Logistics, PGL, UKSA, Woodmill, Calshot, Weymouth Outdoor Centre and Christchurch Kayaking to name only a few. He regularly runs courses and expeditions for the Royal Navy, and advises them on paddlesport related matters.
Isle of Wight Adventure Activities is approved and recognized by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority, the British Canoe Union, the National Navigation Scheme, the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and the Institute of Outdoor Learning.
