What is Coasteering?

Coasteering is an adventure activity that treats the coastal environment as a giant natural playground. Participants manoeuvre along a stretch of challenging terrain by using a variety of different methods to explore the impact zone where the sea meets the land. These techniques and methods include sea level traversing, rock climbing, sea swimming, body surfing, caving, rock jumping and even belly flopping!

What we offer

High tide (HW) Sessions – from £45

An adrenaline filled adventure you won’t forget in a hurry! You will be introduced to a world of hidden caves, secret beaches and stunning scenery.

Upon arrival you will be kitted out with a warm winter wetsuit, a buoyancy aid and a helmet. You will then be taken on a bespoke 2 hour guided expedition.

During the session our guides will teach you all the different techniques required to complete each section safely, whether it be sea swimming, rock climbing, cliff jumping or caving. Every feature and obstacle on the route is optional so if you don’t like the look of something we will always offer an alternative way round.

Group Format

Public and Private groups welcome

Open to anyone aged 12 years old and above who can swim a minimum of 100m confidently in the sea and has a fair level of fitness!


Low tide (LW) sessions – From £30

Our low tide sessions are a gentle alternative to the intense high tide version. It still involves a two hour guided exploration of the hidden stretch of coast, but it will require far less physical exertion. Open to a wider range of ages from 8 years old and up. Participants will still be fully equipped with winter wetsuits, buoyancy aids and helmets. During the session our guides will show you how to navigate the rocky terrain via rock scrambling, caving and the odd bit of sea swimming but their main focus is to help you learn all about the unique history, geology, wildlife and potential foraging opportunities of this extraordinarily beautiful area . 

Group Format

Public and Private groups welcome

Open to anyone aged 8 years old and above




Coasteering is a very safe adventure activity when conducted by a professional guide. All our guides are fully qualified beach lifeguards. Safety is paramount and we will constantly monitor the tide and sea state both before and during your session for potential risks and hazards. All our safety equipment is checked daily and will always be sized appropriately. Freshwater Bay Coasteering holds an AALA license (Adventure Activities Licensing  Authority).
