The beaches in the South West are the ideal outdoor learning environment and our expert guided activities provide hands-on educational fun for children of all ages. Our experienced staff have taught hundreds of children about marine wildlife and conservation. With a huge selection of suitable locations in Cornwall and Devon, we can arrange trips at a site convenient for your organisation.
