COVID-19 Policy at Adventure Sunderland

We hope to be back open offering 1-2-1 private lessons and family unit sessions as soon as the national lockdown ends (05/01/2021).

Further weeks of lockdown and travel restrictions will no doubt leave you with a thirst for Adventure! 

However as with any business there are certain government guidelines that we have had to adopt to minimise the risk of transmission of Covid-19. These procedures have been put in place, using the government’s guidance as well as guidance from Sport England, to keep you as safe as possible, particularly with regards to hygiene and social distancing.

We will be monitoring any additional ongoing guidance from the government as well as taking feedback from our guests and staff.

To enable Adventure Sunderland to comply with government advice and to protect our clients and staff we politely ask you to follow the this guidance:


Covid-19 Refund Policy

We are taking bookings for July 28th and onward. If you are unable to attend for one of the 2 reasons below then a full refund will be issued (unless you want to reschedule your booking for a later date)

– If the government advice changes restricting travel, meaning that you are unable to travel to us and take part in your activity.

– You have symptoms or have been in contact with anyone with Covid-19 in the past 14 days

You must contact us at least 24 hours before your activity.

Our standard booking terms and conditions apply otherwise.

Before your Activity Lesson

All lessons must be booked and paid for online or on the phone- All participants must complete an online consent form which is available to down load. Any Covid-19 related medical conditions must be included.


On Arrival

Please ensure you arrive 15 minutes before your session, please keep to our times to enable us to keep everyone apart. Please head to our reception (Roker Beach front opposite the Pier) and there will be a hygiene station as you enter the building, To ensure the appropriate distance is kept between yourselves and our staff please follow the signs.

You will be issued with a sterilised wetsuit and safety kit. All our wetsuits and equipment will be cleaned/disinfected and dried after each session and will be rotated so there is a minimum of 48 hours between uses. Hard equipment will be wiped down with antibacterial sanitiser.

If you, or a member of your household show any symptoms of Covid-19 you must not take part in a session or visit our Centre.


During Your Activity Session

All safety briefings, on land coaching and demonstrations will be performed with a safe distance from participants.

As a group activity we require guests to make an effort to remain 1 metre plus away from each other during the session. We do understand that the sea is a fickle place and the waves and currents can move you about. We do ask that you keep an eye on the instructor and fellow Adventurers and you move or paddle away at the first instance.

The instructor will work on a 2 metre guideline from the participants, they will ensure they are in the best position to assist if required – this will not impact on your experience and they will communicate clearly. If assistance is required the instructor will be ready to help but contact will be kept to the minimum.


After Your Activity Session

We do ask that used water sports equipment are returned and placed into the buckets provided so that we can ensure they are cleaned properly. 

Adventure Sunderland would like to thank everyone for their co-operation during this time, if you have any concerns please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
