Every one of our core team members & seasonal instructors can’t wait to meet you & give you a fantastic experience out on the water/land.

Our dedication in providing quality sessions will allow you to walk away, not only having had the best time, we also would love you to learn something while challenging yourself.

With his knowledge & hands on approach, 2023 is THE year for OUTDOOR LEARNING!!

Seasonal Instructors

Bry & Mali

Bry & Harry (chief instructor) studied Outdoor Pathway together & today their paths still cross.

This summer Bry joined us a as permanent member of staff, which we absolutely loved.

Mali was a nice surprise for the team, when Bry adopted her. We love you both.

Poppy & Jacob

At the start of the summer, both Poppy & Jacob completed their L3 – Outdoor Pathway Course at Weymouth College.

Lucky us, they decided to spend most of their summer working for us.

Poppy is now a qualified swimming teacher & Jacob is heading to the states to begin working as a deckhand.


A familiar face around the academy, we made Ed more permanent this season & he was a huge asset to the team.

At the end of November Ed is heading to France for seasonal work, where he starts a new adventure along with his girlfriend. Exciting!

Luis & Jenson

Our man for climbing. Luis is a in – demand free lance instructor, for his knowledge & experience. The fact he has Jenson, is a bonus.

Luis maintains our climbing equipment & kit & is also very handy with the camera, providing us with content. Thank you.

Recently he went on a cycle tour around France.

Harry C

Recently Harry left his position at Weymouth College, where he was Student Services Assistant and is now at university. Hopefully, without seaweed on his face…

He loves climbing & bouldering, travelling around the UK to challenge himself.

Josh (Shep)

Shep is what he goes by at WPA. The children love him as he makes kayaking & raft building his own – adding his own spin on the sessions.

A huge gamer & unless you offer him chocolate….. well, we’re still not sure if he eats anything else…
