You'll spend the majority of your time on the beach ensuring the Voyager Adventure programme is delivered safely and to the high standards, our customers expect.

The local winds are renowned for their unpredictability but the local knowledge we provide means you'll be able to ensure each group is kept active throughout their stay.
Plenty of days on the beach (in the sun) will include hard graft and a lot of expended energy. You'll finish the season fitter, stronger and wiser about activity and staff management, and group activity provision. You'll also get to entice the staff team into activity days and make the best use of where you are by getting out and active whenever possible.
