My 14 year old son and I went on a 2 hour kayaking and canoeing taster session last weekend and had a fantastic time. Alan was extremely professional, calm, very competent and had a great sense of humour. Safety was of paramount importance and Alan made the 2 hour session informative, educational and fun. As neither of us had been... More

I met Alan in New Mills, he was a good instructor, gave clear advice enabling me to pass the BCU 2 star qualification with ease. He went some way beyond the 2 star level, which should make passing the next level easier. I enjoyed my time doing the course and would recommend it to anyone!

Alan is calm, responsive, with a good sense of humour, but most importantly exceptionally and ideally suited with great confidence, and competence. You feel in safe hands from... More

We spent an hour learning technical skills, followed by an hour of climbing and descending instruction, then two hours of a navigation team challenge. The whole day was really well organised and the instructors were encouraging and knowledgeable. Our team had a mix of experienced and... More

Really fun learning to lead! Basic overview of core skills and some crack climbing techniques. Instructor was great - tailored course to my specific needs. Much more confident now, thanks!
