What we're about

Hi and thank you for joining Jurassic cast adventure weekends. I'm lucky to be able to call Dorset home and have experienced some amazing adventures while being here. My meet up group is to show you ll the amazing things that can be seen and done while visiting the Jurassic coast.

With miles and miles of coastline the walking is the best I've seen so much history from the Dinosaurs to a deserted village that was fled during the war still intact to this very day. Rugged coastlines with 12 century churches ready for you to explore. With nothing better than a picturesque Dorset pub for Cider and a pastie to refuel along the way.

The sea offers us so many potential adventures. Sea kayaking from Swanage to Studland beach is a favorite of mine which offers the perfect view of the Coastline and the mighty old Harry's rock where you can kayak through its giant archway in the waves. My Poole harbour weekend will see you exploring the nature reserve finding the abundance of birds and wildlife that inhabits the area along with the Harbour's very own seas which do make an appearance on many occasions . Join me for a nights camping on Brownsea island home to Baiden powell the founder of the scouts along with history throughout the ages.

Alongside the weekends I will be arranging local get together's including night biking, Local walks foraging walks in the hills, Fitness sesson's plus much more to keep you all entertained

With so much to do I will provide the accomadation for you right in the heart of Swanage providing all the camping equipment and even the food with a fully catered event you only need worry about having the best weekend of your life.
