Our Coasteering session’s give us the perfect activity if and when the surf is flat providing guaranteed smiles for miles and exhilaration.
We’re still really excited about this growing dynamic sport which is quickly becoming our most popular outdoor activity and offers the ultimate adrenaline rush even when the sea is flat calm. The feedback from customers is incredible and we look forward to showing you what our coastline really has to offer.

The sport of coasteering is a combination of adventure swimming along sea cliffs, exploring gullies, caves, cracks and different rock formations created by the sea and traversing the lower level sea cliffs by foot, above deep water and then finally climbing the cliffs to different jumping locations. Cliff jumps can range anywhere from 1 – 10 meters in height so there’s something for everyone with different routes to suit personal ability and different groups.

Due to the nature of the local chalk cliffs and lack of clay and sediment both water quality and visibility are quite incredible at our Coasteering location, with a little Sunshine it could well be the Mediterranean and if you visit early summer you will be treated to an abundance of nesting Puffins, Razor Bills and Guls.

Coasteering entails wearing a specialist full body wetsuit, recreational buoyancy aid, whitewater helmet and suitable footwear. We provide all the required equipment, all you’ll need to bring is swimwear a towel and a sense of adventure!
So regardless of if you’re a family looking for a unique way to explore the coast, work colleges on a team building exercise or a 20 strong Stag / Hen do looking for an adventurous activity we’ve got it covered and you might be surprised to see what our coastline has to offer.

All our Coasteering courses will need to be pre-booked in advance, although you are welcome to contact us and check availability for an upcoming weekend or dates of your choice. We offer Surf Lessons as a secondary activity if there’s too much surf to safely Coasteer, so whatever the weather we can provide exciting activities and an experience to remember.
