A real gem of an activity centre. A great welcome from the start of our adventure. We went on the sofa first and then the banana boat. The lady driving the boat ( sorry forgot your name) was great fun and made the 30 minutes go so quickly. The kids had great fun and then went on the big paddle board. So well organised and such a great set up. Thankyou 👍🏻

We were slightly late in booking something in advance for my brothers birthday this week, when I made an enquiry with Action Watersports Sports to check availability for the Aqua Park and it was fully booked Janet got to action! I was called back within the hour to say that Janet had kindly offered to stay on late with Charlie their lifeguard so that our party could come at 6:30 after closing to come along.

We arrived and the welcome was so special, all precautions in place and we had the whole place to ourselves! Needless to say my brother had the best birthday and it was all down to Janet and Charley’s kindness.

I’d recommend Action Watersports to anyone - an absolutely brilliant time had by all - I just wish my muscles were as happy about it today as I was yesterday.

Izzie was wonderful.
We brought along 5 children, K the youngest has been to rounds of swimming lessons etc, but still a nervous wreck. Izzie got him floating in the water realising his buoyancy aid could work, she took him out on the water with her kayak and he is now looking forward to another visit.
Brilliantly run place x

What a fantastic experience! We had the best time and the staff were incredible.

Being on holiday we thought we would try something a little bit different and were not disappointed! Not only were the staff friendly and helpful, but the area was clearly marked out and sanitiser etc were conveniently placed around so COVID regulations were adhered too! The jet ski instruction was easy to understand and made fun by the guy doing the talk, and he made a genuine connection with our group and made sure everybody felt comfortable and at ease. The facilities were amazing and the value for money was second to none! The length of time on the jet skis was absolutely perfect, and the jet ski's themselves were easy to handle and well maintained!

The staff helped to find a seat for my mother (whose in a mobility scooter) so that she could see the jet skis whilst we were there.

Natalie was very helpful, making sure that we not only had the forms to fill out (which I had forgotten🙈) but also so that my sister could join on the jet ski with my partner!

If anyone is thinking about jet skiing this is the place to go!

If you want a great introduction to getting active on the water. This is the place to go.
We had a fabulous day learning to water ski as a family. The coaches Janet and Kevin were brilliant with us. Very encouraging, great teaching cues, patient and successfully got all four of us standing and skiing to the bottom of the lake and back.
The atmosphere at the centre has a feel good positive vibe and it was a thoroughly enjoyable activity and unforgettable experience to share as a family. Such a great holiday activity to do. Thank you.

We also had a go at paddle boarding which is also all about getting the technique right. Again instructors were available to help out and giving coaching tips.

One suggestion would be to offer a photo service. As we were all on the water we didn’t have the opportunity to get photos of each other, which is a shame. We’re always have the memory but it would have been great to have an action shot of each of us.
We wish the centre many years of continued success. Thank you.

We visited the aqua park and had an amazing time. Our family ranged from 7 to 59 we all had great fun and it was very well managed. Social distancing and covid restrictions were adhered to and did not impact on a great day out we would all go back and thoroughly recommend it.

We went to Action Watersports last Sunday to have a go at waterskiing, a tow on "The Screamer" and the children then went to play on the Aqua Park. We had the best day of the year! The attention to Covid restrictions were in place and organised, as were the activities. A special 'Thank you' to our on shore instructor Janice and our speed boat operator and instructor Kevin for making this a great experience and a wonderful memory for the boys. I recommend Action Watersports for anyone looking for a fun day out where you can also learn a new sport!

Yet another fantastic day of wakeboarding at Action Watersports today, feeling as welcome as ever by the professional and knowledgable staff.

It was great to see families enjoying the aqua park, inflatable rides and beginner waterskiing sessions.

Everyone needs a little bit of respite in the crazy times and the Covid response put together means that everyone gets to have fun safely.

So we visited yesterday with one of the complex needs children I work with, the staff went above and beyond to make his experience amazing. They asked about him , asked what they could to help. Gave us the safety guidelines to take to the car so we could relay them in a way he could process. Made sure everything flowed well and they wasnt alot of waiting about. They addressed him (you'll be amazed how many places go through us carers and not him as a person) they took pictures and videos for us as memories because all carers were supporting him in the way.

Top day, he hasn't stopped talking about it, thank you for your support and making it possible.

We had a fantastic morning at Action Watersports. We were fortunate enough that we were the only ones booked for the aqua park and paddle boarding and the team were super lovely and attentive. If you can book an off-peak day in the morning, having the whole place to yourselves feels great and (they may even let you have a bit longer or start earlier like us!) Would highly recommend if staying at Parkdean Resort in Camber. I would say that the walk from the nearest bus stop is closer to 20 minutes rather than 10, as stated on the action watersports site but the walk is absolutely fine. We had such a lovely and fun morning and will definitely return in the future and recommend to friends/family.
