The normal maximum capacity per event of 8 people still applies. Staff leading these events will be wearing PPE.

Event specific information

Bespoke Rock Pool Safaris

  • We are open for these bookings. If households are not in the same ‘bubble’ then they will be required to maintain 5 metres distance from other participants during the session.
  • Your rock pool guide will wear PPE and practise social distancing where possible. All equipment provided will be cleaned and sanitised before the event.
  • Should anyone involved in the event develop Covid symptoms then they and their ‘bubble’ should not attend the event. In such circumstances, a 100% refund will be given should you decide to cancel the event.

Public Events

  • Our October public session is now on! This will operate under the same protocols as described above for the Bespoke Rock Pool Safaris.

Beach events for Schools & Educational Groups

  • We are currently taking bookings for the Autumn 2020 term.
  • Bookings for beach events will therefore be restricted to single classes.
  • Should future restrictions prevent the running of booked school events, the event will be cancelled and schools will be offered a choice of either a 100% refund or the opportunity to rebook at a future date.

Mobile Rock Pool Visits

  • For school visits, we are currently taking bookings for the Autumn 2020 term.
  • Mobile Rock Pool visits to schools will still be able to cater for up to four classes, with each class visiting the mobile rock pool separately throughout the day as per normal.
  • Should future restrictions prevent the running of booked school events, the event will be cancelled and schools will be offered a choice of either a 100% refund or the opportunity to rebook at a future date.
  • Mobile Rock Pool visits to other locations are dependent on the restrictions in place for those locations. We are happy to discuss practicalities, so please do get in contact. Social distancing is difficult around the Mobile Rock Pool and therefore everyone viewing the rock pool at the same time must be in the same ‘bubble’, under current restrictions.
