school adventures blue oceanWe provide outdoor activities in Wales, for Schools, Colleges, Universities and Youth Clubs. We offer a fantastic variety of experiences tailored to your individual needs and budget. Activities in South & West Wales, include: Canyoning (aka Gorge Walking) , KayakingRaft Building and many more.

“As part of our Year 8 leavers programme we enlisted the help of Blue-Ocean to organise some land based activities and Gorge Scrambling. The professional standards displayed by Neil and his team instilled great confidence in our pupils and staff. The children were challenged in an exciting environment yet constantly monitored and cared for by the Blue Ocean Staff.  The sense of achievement by all the pupils was certainly visible on their faces at the end of the day. We will certainly be using Blue Ocean in the future.”   Chris Coleman – St john’s on the Hill Prep School.

 

‘A fantastic time had by all. Both students and staff found Canyoning with Blue Ocean an exciting and challenging experience. We found their staff to be encouraging, patient and most importantly for us safety conscious (with a group of seventy 16-18 year olds under our supervision). On a personal note I have worked for many years with various providers of outdoor activities and find that Neil and the Blue Ocean team are always professional and a pleasure to work with. A big thank you to the Blue Ocean team from the staff and students at the City of Bath College.’
