Family Raft Build

Why not give raft building a go as a family? it’s a fun activity where you can work together to build a solid enough rafts out of plastic barrels and wood to be able to paddle down a beautiful stretch of river for about 1 km. Raft building really is a fun and hands on activity where you get to learn how to lash and tie various knots, perfect for the scouts and guides and in the family. Once your raft is built you all actually get to go on a little journey as well down the river Dee, there may even be a few little rapids so make sure you’ve tied your raft together tight!

More Info...

We can offer a fantastic raft building session which incorporates not only the challenge of building a raft that floats and holds together, but also a journey from a country mansion on the banks of the river Dee taking out about 2 km downstream.

This is a fantastic opportunity to raft down a river, on a craft built by your own fair hands. There is no access on this stretch of the river to the general public and it's a SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) to boot.

Raft building sessions last approximately 2 hours depending on group sizes.



Watch the fun!

Been here several times with family & friends. Everyone has thoroughly enjoyed the High Ropes experience and even for people like me who are unable to take part there is a thrill and pleasure in watching those you love have a great time. The staff were patient and encouraging when my daughter lost her nerve at one point enabling her to complete the course and feel pleased with herself at her achievement. Well done Get Wet and thank you. We will be back.
