Surfdock School Programmes & School Tours

Watching students grow in confidence as they master new skills on the sheltered waters of Grand Canal Dock is one of the great rewards of running Surfdock. You can choose a half or full day of activities including stand up paddle boarding, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and cable wakeboarding
(check out what cable wakeboarding looks like in our video).

All activities are easy to pick up and do not require any previous experience and we will teach your students through games and fun. Our No. 1 goal is to make sure that your students have a really memorable fun day out!

Surfdock offers certified watersports programmes customised to suit the schedule of a School, ranging from once-off School Outings to a modularised series of lessons run over a number of weeks.


Celebrate the end of term or take your students for a taster session to try out a combination of watersports. Our school tours have proven immensely popular with primary and secondary schools and offer a unique experience to schoolchildren in a safe and thoroughly enjoyable environment. Such programmes can be offered as Full Day (5 hours) or Half day (3 hours) activities in autumn, spring and summer.


This is our most popular Schools Programme, and focuses on students attaining competency in several watersports disciplines over a series of lessons. Programmes are customised to the schedule of the school and can run from between 2 and 8 lessons, lasting three hours each. Typically a school will schedule the lesson as once per week over the duration of the course at a set time.Lessons can be run for any three hour period during daylight hours Monday to Friday and teachers go free.

This programme is particularly popular with Transition Year groups.

Our half day school tours are available to groups of 10-70, the full day can be booked for 20-70 students. Surfdock provides all necessary safety and watersports equipment and is fully insured. We have changing rooms, showers and lockers for valuables on site. We believe that our superb safety record, excellence in teaching, competitive prices and central location offer the ingredients for a memorable fun day on the water.
