Customers will be required to arrive 'beach ready' and arrive no earlier than 10 minutes prior to their booking slot. 

Our Changing Village will be available for customer use; whilst adhering to covid safe cleaning measures.

Lockers will be available to store customers' belongings; please avoid bringing any valuables with you during your visit. Please ensure you bring a £1 coin or trolley token for the lockers. Please be aware we no longer accept cash within our centre.

How long do I have in the water?

Each session is 60 minutes.

What will happen after the session ends?

We ask that all customers vacate the water when instructed by our lifeguards. 

You will then have 20 minutes from the time your session ends to when you need to vacate the Changing Village.  (This is to allow us time to clean the area before the next session starts).
