a little bit about inflatable rides at Camel ski school…

Our inflatables on the Camel Estuary can be a wild ride. We stick to the centre of the estuary where the water tends to make the experience more enjoyable. Our drivers are fully qualified and have to have at least 3 years teaching behind them. They also attend a separate inflatable towing course that ensures you get full enjoyment and maximum safety; the things that matter the most to us.

Our inflatables include: Banana boat, Donuts and the Pancake


How long are sessions, and do I need to book in advance?

Session lengths depend on which inflatable ride you go for - banana boating is a 20 minute ride for 4 to 6 people, donuts and the pancake are both 10 minute rides. The donut takes two people and the pancake take up to 3 people. As with all activities we strongly advise booking in advance to avoid disappointment as we are often fully booked in the summer!

Who can do it?

For banana boating anyone over the age of 7 can have a ride, but anyone under 11 must be accompanied by and adult aged over 18 years old. For the donuts and pancake riders must be over the age of 14.

Can I make a group booking, or can my family come and watch?

Group bookings are recommended for these activities for the ultimate fun. We can also take 2 or 3 extra people on the boat that tows the inflatable, or drop spectators on our island so they can watch the action with a coffee!

Are there changing facilities?

Yes! We have both female and male changing rooms, each with a hot shower and toilet. You can leave your belongings in the changing rooms, but please be aware we don’t have any lockers. Any valuables can be kept behind the desk during your session.

What about equipment?

We have absolutely everything you will need to enjoy your time on the water with us, we have a huge range of thick C-Skins wetsuits and bouyancy aids - all included in the price of your session. Just bring yourself and some swimmers!

What happens if I need to cancel, or the weather is bad?

We will only cancel sessions if the conditions are dangerous - rain won’t stop us! For our full cancellation policy click here.
