What is Coasteering?
Travelling/exploring the coastline at sea level. We swim around coves, scramble across the rocks while checking out the wildlife, jump off rocks, climb back up, jump off again, get washed around in the swell, or just float about and take it all in! We will cater your Coasteer to the ability and desires of the group.
Nothing is mandatory apart from getting in at the start and getting out at the end.
We won't ever make you do anything, but we will certainly encourage you to push your comfortable boundaries.
How old do you have to be?
We dont like to say no and we dont think someones age should determine what someone can or cannot do. So, if you fit in the kit and the weatehr is appropriate we will take you on an adventure!
If on the day of the activity the conditions are unsuitable then we will have to look at rearranging the activity date or activity.
What shoes to wear?
Coasteering - Old lace-up trainers, NO water shoes with pull cords or elastic or velcro!
Must be closed-toe! Crocs don't count!
Surfing - water shoes or wetsuit boots
Kayaking - No Crocs! water shoes are OK but old trainers are advised as with Coasteering.
SUP - Old Trainers
Climbing - Lace-up Trainers, we also have climbing shoes available.
Why old trainers and not water shoes?
The best shoes for Coasteering, Kayaking and SUPing are lace up trainers.
This is because they offer a nice thick cushioned sole to keep your feet comfy when scrambling over rocks along the coast. (More so with Coasteering but there is always a chance when Kayaking and SUPing along the coast!)
They also lace up so we have less chance of losing a shoe or two!
And finally trainers, especially running trainers, have ample water drainage so that you aren't walking around in puddles!
