What is Coasteering?

Coasteering is an adventure sport that treats the natural environment as a giant eco playground. When you Coasteer you navigate and manoeuvre along a stretch of coastline using a variety of different methods to explore the high energy impact zone of where the water 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

Upon arrival you will be kitted out with a warm winter wetsuit, a buoyancy aid and a helmet. Our Guides will ensure you have the appropriately sized and fitted equipment. You will then be taken on a bespoke 2 hour adventure. During the session your guides will give detailed instructions on how to complete each section. Every obstacle and route is optional which means that depending on your confidence and the conditions we will tailor the session to your requirements and always offer an alternative.


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).
