Cardiff International White Water
If you're looking for fun for the whole family, why not book an activity that everyone will remember at Cardiff International White Water (CIWW)?
We offer Family Rafting sessions, where we lower the level and speed of the white water rapids, so that children as young as six can enjoy the course.
They can also try out indoor surfing, canoeing, kayaking and lots more at our site, so they won't need to go to the beach to get their watersports fix. And if they're not fans of water, they can get harnessed up and take on the high ropes Air Trail course that towers above the site.
Or if your kids want to learn a new watersport, we have that covered, too. From our 5 Day Surf School to Youth Multi Activity Weeks, there's something for all budding watersports enthusiasts out there.
So come and join us at CIWW and start your exhilarating family adventure! CIWW provides all the necessary equipment for activities, including wetsuits, wetsuit boots, buoyancy aids and helmets. Participants just need to bring swimwear to wear underneath the wetsuits (in cold weather you may wish to bring an additional non-cotton layer to wear underneath the wetsuit, eg a thin fleece), a towel and a £1 coin for the locker.
Height and age restrictions apply on certain activities, so please see through the DOWTK link for further information. You'll also find a full list of our prices and opening times.
