> History

The charity currently known as Adventures Offshore has been around in various forms since it was founded in 1964 by the late Ken Wright, MBE, who was a key player throughout much of the scheme’s history. Shortly after retiring from the scheme in 2001, Ken wrote the story of the organisation looking back over the 37 years he had been at the helm. Recent updates by John Meggitt and others.

In memory of Ken Wright, MBE.
