“Best time I’ve ever had in neoprene….. We (family of 2 adults and two children) spent an exhilarating, energetic, kinetic, wonderful watery and strangely relaxing time at Preseli Venture. All the guides were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable… For each activity we felt safe, learned new skills and had an immense amount of fun. The food was also delicious. Looking forward to coming back” – Warren Williams
