Wet and Wild

If you get a real kick out of having fun on the water, then Wet & Wild is the action-packed holiday that’s right up your street!

What’s it all about?
If you get a kick from fun on the water, then Wet & Wild will float your boat! The Isle of Wight is a mecca for watersports and here you’ll try waterskiing, wakeboarding, power boating, knee boarding, sailing, banana boats, kayaking and canoeing.

Can I do other activities as well?
Yes – every day you’ll also enjoy half a day of dry land activities from our brilliant multi activity programme, plus different entertainment every evening. So you can pack in loads of other new experiences too!

What will I learn?
Wakeboarding, like snowboarding on water, is one cool way to take to the water. Then try waterskiing – with two skis to control, you’ll start on a training bar alongside the boat, but will soon progress to a long line.

For powerboating, we have boats with engine sizes from 50–90bhp; plus we have Wave Slayer inflatable’s to tow you behind! Weather permitting; you’ll also spend half a day sailing to Cowes, home of British yachting.

Do I need any experience?
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a dab hand at watersports or a complete beginner. If you’re looking for excitement and are water confident, then this is your holiday!

Do I need any specialist equipment?
No, we provide everything from wetsuits to lifejackets, plus personal tuition from our fully trained instructors.

Just be ready to get very wet!

Afternoon Activities Waterskiing and Knee Boarding
Dinner Time to eat again – a different menu each day (and did we mention, often evening meals come with a hot pudding too – or you can stick with fruit if you prefer).
Evening Ents Talent shows, campfires, quizzes and much more – your evening entertainment programme gives you the chance to get together with everyone else in your age group and have some laughs.
Bedtime Bedtime. The younger ones go first whilst older groups have time to chill out and chat or watch a DVD. Then it’s lights out and time to sleep ready to do it all over again tomorrow!

Many of our log cabins have recently been updated and refurbished. Most rooms sleep 4–10 and have their own bathroom. The cabins are grouped together in small villages. 7-10s usually stay in our cosy Woodland House, situated in the grounds with en-suite rooms.
