  • Mediterranean Watersports Trips for schools

Let the sea inspire

You’ll bring back confident, positive students who have enjoyed a packed itinerary of watersports off superb beaches in France; students who have benefited from the opportunities to learn new skills and experience a new environment; students with a real sense of their own achievement who understand how perseverance leads to success; students who have learned to believe they can.

When you choose a watersports course with us, you'll get an action-packed adventure in the most inspiring surroundings.

Activities

Excursions

One day of your itinerary is set aside to change the pace. You can opt for the thrills and spills of a water park or take the opportunity to visit a local town – or both! Most groups staying at Mimosa include a day trip to the beach at Le Grau du Roi and the ancient, fortified city of Aigues-Mortes.

Fun-packed Evenings

The fun doesn’t stop when the day’s activities are over. Our centre teams lead evening entertainment to keep your students occupied, including a nightly disco.
