Spoilt for choice with our school trips

UKSA offers a unique blend of challenging and rewarding water-based sports and activities which develop life skills and build confidence and resilience.

Many schools opt for our popular multi-activity programmes which are based around watersports and team-building activities for all ages and abilities.

Alternatively, visits can be tailored to work towards RYA and BC qualifications.
