Why donate to Cardigan Bay Watersports?

Founded in 2003 and a registered charity since 2006, the Centre supports a wide variety of school, youth and other groups, many of which are charged at little more than cost. 

We have a loyal group of volunteers who give up their time to help on and off the water, but with a very short season to bring in cash the Centre depends on securing grant monies to replace worn-out equipment and fund staff training.

A growing number of our young instructors have gone on to find full time year-round work helped by the experience they gained working at the Centre.

Many of our students have gained real transferable life skills following their time on our courses.

The Centre has become a valued resource for Ceredigion as a whole, not just New Quay! 


With your help we can be more confident about the future of the organisation.

You don’t need a PayPal account to donate; on the PayPal page there is an option to ‘Use your credit card or bank account (where available).’ Just click Continue and you’ll be able to donate by card.

We have a wide range of opportunities available for all ages and all skill levels. You don’t need to be an expert in any of the watersports we provide. We can offer part-time volunteers opportunities for:

  • School-age youngsters looking for work experience
  • Experienced watersports enthusiasts
  • Those with instructor tickets


We are recruiting Kayak tour guides.

The role would suit individuals with a knowledge of the local wildlife who would lead visitors on a paddle down the coast.  No prior experience of paddling is required as we will train you.

If you that appeals getting paid to spend time on the water sharing your knowledge then email info@cardiganbaywatersports.org.uk.
