Brilliant place for open water swimming. Well managed and friendly atmosphere for any ability. Woke me up better than any coffee or yoga session this morning.

A great place. For large and small groups. I've taken my 9, 10 & 11 year old with friends over school holidays and a whole class of 30 for their leaving celebration. They've done paddle boarding, rafting, kayaking and more. The price is great for all day and I have no worries leaving them, the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. There are wet suits and changing facilities. A basic shower. There is also a cheap tuck shop which the kids love too. Highly recommended.
