COASTAL EXPLORER

The perfect full day excursion, kayak, coasteer, wild swim and snorkle your way around the stunning Pembrokeshire Coast

Coastal Explorer with TYF

During our coastal explorers you will be sit-on-top kayaking, coasteering, snorkelling and you can even try your hand at fishing. You’ll discover hidden coves, explore secret caves and sandy beaches, and wonder at the wildlife above and below the water. 


The sit-on-top sea kayak is a user-friendly craft, easy to control and very stable, designed for gentle exploration and suitable for all ages and abilities. The open cockpit allows you to work on your tan while the changing vista of caves, bays, beaches and headlands unfolds before you.


There’s no strict timetable, so we can stop wherever and whenever we want!During your coastal explorer trip you will experience the sport of Coasteering, a breath-taking combination of rock scrambling and cliff jumping (if you fancy, although the guides will do their best to persuade you to give it a try).You’ll eat your lunch on hard to reach beaches or cove, exclusive dining the TYF way! During the day you are more than likely to have some interaction with the local wildlife especially seals, they don’t seem to mind us being there as long as we don’t make too much noise!

What is coasteering?

Coasteering was invented by TYF in 1986. It is an exhilarating blend of scrambling, leaping and traversing along the coastline, where the sea meets the land. There are spots to jump, stretches to swim, caves to explore and waves to navigate.

What equipment do I need?

You Bring

  • Swimwear

  • Old shorts (to wear over your wetsuit)

  • Towel

  • Old trainers

TYF Provide

  • Helmet

  • 5mm winter wetsuit

  • Buoyancy aid

  • Wetsuit socks, gloves and hoods in the winter months 

What if I can't swim?

When coasteering you have to wear a buoyancy aid, so being able to swim is not a requirement. We run these sessions at a small ratio of 1 guide to 8 participants which enables close support and supervision. 

TYF have been taking our customers out on the clifftops of the St. Davids Peninsular for over 30 years. In that time we invented coasteering, started the world freestyle kayaking championships and had lots of fun!


To this day coasteering and kayaking remain our two most popular activities and our family and adult coastal explorer sessions are a great way to combine the two activities with an exhilerating day of jumping, swimming, climbing, snorkelling, wild swimming, deep water soloing and all round adventure.
