Get Afloat in partnership with Rockley Watersports


Looking to dip your toes in the water? Then check out show favourite, Get Afloat, run in partnership with Rockley Watersports.

Try your hand at single or double handed dinghy sailing, grab a friend and try out the double kayaks, have a go at stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) or step aboard the XL SUP with the whole family.  It’s great fun.

All the kit and equipment you need is provided, including wetsuits and buoyancy aids, and the dedicated team from Rockley Watersports are on hand to make sure everything is perfectly safe and provide first timers with top tips to get started or help sharpen up existing watersports skills for more experienced visitors.  You just need to bring a towel and lots of enthusiasm!

Get Afloat is included in the price of your show ticket, each session runs for 1-hour and is available to anyone aged eight and upwards.
