Coasteering

WHY IS IT CALLED COASTEERING?

In recent years, Coasteering has emerged as one of the most sought-after adventure activities in the UK. While informal coasteering activities have been enjoyed for many years, with individuals exploring the waterways to access hidden coves or to return from secluded beaches, the term itself was officially documented in a climbing guidebook for Devon. Its origins stem from the fusion of mountaineering and orienteering, resulting in coasteering.

The term "coasteering" was initially coined by Edward C Pyatt, who cleverly combined "mountaineering" with "coast." The concept of delivering coasteering as an activity session is said to have been first delivered by Andy Middleton in Wales in 1985.

Coasteering is perfect for kids of all ages. For our group sessions, we ask kids aged 8 and older. For younger children our family sessions welcome kids 6+

Coasteering is really accessible and doesn't require you to have any previous experience or any special head for heights. We’ll teach you all the techniques and guide you along the way.

We love coasteering in the rain. With warm wetsuits on and since we’re wet anyway thankfully the rain doesn't stop play.

We’ll only run the session if the sea is safe to do so. We keep a sharp eye on the forecast and will be in touch if we need to move or cancel your session. We’ll always endeavour to offer you another date or activity, a voucher or a full refund if we can't go deliver the session because of the weather.

We’ve found the perfect amount of time for a session is two hours. This doesn't include the time it takes to get changed or check-in. Expect to be with us 2.5 hours.

You won’t need to do all the jumps - We start small and work our way up and help you jump correctly. Jumps are an element of our sessions and not the main theme. You won't have to do anything you don't want to do.

Yes, we do require you to swim for our sessions. Although you’ll have a buoyancy aid on, you’ll need to be comfortable in deep water and swim a minimum of 25 metres. One of the first things you’ll do is enter into deep water and swim a small section. Coasteering is a journey along the coastline, linked by small swimming sections.

We supply all the necessary equipment for your adventure. Simply bring swimwear, old lace-up trainers that can get wet, and a towel with you. You’ll get changed at our shop and so can leave your belongings with us whilst you are out on the session.
