Cardiff International White Water Rafting

Catching Family Thrills at Cardiff Bay

If you're looking for Welsh fun for the whole family to enjoy, book an activity at Cardiff International White Water during your visit to Wales.

Seriously, this place takes fun to a whole new level, and you really will be hard pressed to find any activities quite as exhilarating as the ones on offer at this incredible attraction.

From rafting to surfing to canoeing to kayaking, the big and little members of your family can all enjoy the thrill of these exciting activities with children as young as six being allowed to take part.

Whether you are a water sports enthusiast, or you just want to try your hand at a new adventure, this is the place to be to create unforgettable family memories.

There are even opportunities for you to learn and become a dab-hand at a new water sport during your visit to Wales. From the centre’s 5 Day Surf School to Youth Multi Activity Weeks, there's something for all budding water sports enthusiasts at CIWW.

Top Tip: Try the Indoor Wave

Like the idea of riding the curve of the waves but don’t like the idea of hitting the unpredictable ocean? You’ll love FlowRider® at CIWW!

This nifty indoor wave simulator is a firm family favourite and is absolutely perfect for when the Welsh weather is misbehaving (which it sometimes does!)!

Here you can ride side by side and show off your best moves alongside your friends and family as you get to grips with riding the jets of water. And for those not adventurous enough to give it a go, there’s a dedicated viewing area where they can watch you in all your glory. Experience is irrelevant, but a sense of fun is essential!

So are you ready to add a bit of va-va-voom to your trip to Wales? You won’t forget a visit to CIWW – that’s a promise!

CCIW will provide you with all the necessary equipment for activities, including wetsuits, wetsuit boots, buoyancy aids and helmets. All you need to bring is swimwear (in cold weather you may wish to bring an additional non-cotton layer to wear underneath the wetsuit, such as a thin fleece), a towel and a £1 coin for the locker.

CIWW is located in the cosmopolitan Cardiff Bay which you can get to by following CF11 0SY on your Sat Nav.
