Building on this success, Ocean Elements is proud to announce that summer 2014 will see the opening of their new watersports centre at the Hotel Nautica, Porto Heli, Greece. This will continue Ocean Elements’ strong reputation for well run, well equipped, safety conscious, and above all good value activity holidays.
The new Porto Heli watersports centre will feature the same high quality equipment found in our existing centres. This will include Sailing equipment from Laser, RS, Hobie and Topper, with windsurfing equipment from Starboard and Tushingham. In addition there are Stand-Up-Paddleboards from Starboard and RED, kayaks from Ocean Kayaks, and mountain bikes from Kona and Specialized.
Ocean Elements concentrates on the personal service afforded by small to medium size centres, a market left behind by those companies who now concentrate on the ‘super centres’. This has meant that the company is able to offer a very high standard of service and attention to detail. Our holidays are open to all levels of ability, fitness and age, which is particularly important for group and family holidays where not everyone wants (or is able) to do the same thing. With beachfront hotels close to their watersports centres, those who want to stay by the pool or beach are not cut off from their friends, family or the action – it’s going on all around them!
Ocean Elements’ extremely popular, and free, Kids Clubs cater for 4 to 12 year olds (Sea Urchins 4-7 years, Sea Tigers 8-12 years). The programme offers an exciting and entertaining mix of activities including: raft building, windsurf taster sessions, sailing joyrides, football, bike rides, art attacks and scavenger hunts. The Youth Squad is the place for 6 to 12 year olds who are more committed to their watersports. For 5 days they receive 2.5 hours of dedicated windsurf and sailing tuition by RYA instructors, coupled with such fun as Swimming Pool Olympics, bike rides, sailing simulator and pizza & film nights.
Tuition is available free to all of Ocean Elements’ guests, and follows the internationally recognised RYA (Royal Yachting Association)
