Joint Adventures was set up by Adam McCluskey in 2004. With 20 years teaching experience under his belt, and almost the same number of years doing outdoor stuff, Adam decided it was time to indulge himself and develop what started out as a hobby and after school activity sessions, into something more. Joint Adventures was born so that he could take people out and share the outdoor adventure (to make it a joint adventure).
Adam is now very ably assisted by a team of instructors who each contribute a mix of skills and a lot of experience and make Joint Adventures successful.
Myself and my partner booked canyoning and gorge scrambling last minute. Adam replied to my email very quickly to let me know that he had availability just two days later which we were very happy about. The centre on Lake Road was really easy to find, we arrived early and Adam was there to greet us and made us feel at ease straight away...
