- Our Story
Wetwheels improves disabled people’s wellbeing by providing active, participatory, therapeutic outdoor sea- going adventures on our specially adapted, fully accessible power
catamaran. All disabled people can benefit, even those who are often marginalised or excluded due to the severity or complex nature of their impairments or conditions.
All the disabled people who join us are
active participants, rather than simply passengers, with the opportunity to steer the vessel and learn seamanship alongside their peers, friends, and families. Adventures last 90 minutes, easing everyone in with a harbour tour before heading out to the open water. With specialist adapted controls, all participants have the opportunity to take the helm and drive. By providing new, ‘out of the ordinary’, fully inclusive, sensory experiences to disabled people, we build confidence and improve aspirations.
