Half day coasteering sessions are run daily with sessions in the morning and afternoon run throughout the year.
Morning coasteering sessions generally start at 0900 and aim to finish between 1200 and 1230, with the afternoon coasteering sessions starting at 1300 and aiming to finish between 1600 and 1630. However we do aim to try and be as flexible as possible so if your group should have a journey ahead of them prior to the session and you think you may find it hard to make it for either start time then please let us know this and we will endeavour to help where we can.
Each coasteering session generally gives you between two and a half to three hours in the water, (depending on the group's ability and weather conditions).
After the general meet and greet it is then time to get kitted out into a wetsuit, buoyancy aid and helmet, before the fun begins.
At the beach you will be given a full safety brief prior to the coasteering session starting.
The Coasteering session itself is basically a journey along the coastline above the intertidal zone where you will find yourself scrambling along the rocky coastline close to the sea, exploring the rocky sea cliffs and caves, adventure swimming, whirling in whirlpools, spinning in the stoppers and of course becoming acquainted with the local marine – seals, porpoise and dolphins are often spotted whilst out on a Coasteering session.
Where it is not possible to scramble along the rocks, you will jump into the water and swim across to the next section, jumps range from anything between 2ft and 35ft however they are not compulsory and there is always an alternative route, jumping is an individual thing where you are challenged by choice, so if you are happy jumping from 3ft up and the next person happy jumping from 30ft up then the sense of fulfilment should be the same for both members of the party.
