We've made it our mission to offer you the most engaging white water experience that North Wales has to offer. Body Boating is a revolutionary water sport that combines elements of surfing, kayaking and swimming. The boat is designed to be used either lying down, on your knees, or seated. It is a fresh way of experiencing the water without the need for a paddle!

Three of us went on the trip as we'd done white water rafting before so fancied something different! It was amazing, Ant was really helpful and funny and made the whole trip that much better! Definitely worth doing as it's so different!
