Accreditation & Safety

Colwyn Bay Watersports are dedicated to providing a safe and accessible environment in which people can feel confident to learn and enjoy watersports.

As such we pride ourselves in operating within the guidelines laid down by the Royal Yachting Association. The Center is also licensed by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority, which is required by anyone providing adventure activities for young people under 18. We in fact received a 2 year License in our first inspection which is good for newly established centers. Safety procedures and risk assessments for all activities at Colwyn Bay Watersports are continually monitored.
