Scheduled & School Holiday Programs

We offer a wide variety of community programs, both regular scheduled events and school holiday programs in partnership with the Gold Coast City Council (Get Active Gold Coast) and Brisbane City Council (Active Parks and Chillout).

Sailing and Kayaking

Our water-based program can include;

  • Four catamarans, each under the supervision of a skipper, with room for 2-3 participants depending on the boat size. Participants are encouraged to take the opportunity to learn the basic skills for sailing.

All team members and participants involved with water based sailing and kayaking activities are fitted with PFD1 safety jackets prior to taking to the water. Participants are encouraged to be wear sunscreen and a marquee is pro
