Time for Adventure
Barrier-free boating for all disabled people
Our Jersey boat is the only one able to run trips at the moment, with all others restricted due to the lockdown but we will review this when the Government provides an update on what measures will be in place after this current lockdown ends.
We hope to be back out on the water again soon - please visit the website or our social media channels for the latest news and updates.
Wetwheels provides the opportunity for all disabled people, including those with profound and complex disabilities, to access the sea in a safe, stimulating and rewarding way on board specially-built, fully-accessible powerboats.
The design features of Wetwheels’ accessible powerboats enable people of all disabilities to participate in the activities. These design features include wheelchair access to the boat with a ramp to the steering position and adapted steering controls to suit people with reduced mobility. The boats have space for family, friends and carers to share the experience with our disabled participants.
In addition to the design features, one of the unique aspects of the Wetwheels experience is the training we give to our skippers and volunteer crew. All receive our bespoke disability awareness in a maritime context training, which helps all our participants feel safe and confident to take the helm and drive the boat.
By offering the opportunity to experience the sea – not just as passengers, but as active participants – we build confidence and improve physical and mental wellbeing.
The Wetwheels concept was developed and pioneered by disabled adventurer, Geoff Holt MBE DL, and is proven to be highly successful.
"Had the most amazing time on board today. My son who has severe autism no speech and limited understanding was given the opportunity to have a little drive. The expression on his face as he drove was heart melting and priceless . Thank you"
