Barefeet Coasteer

No two Coasteer sessions are the same. Every single one is different. The conditions, the tides, the people, all mean that each Coasteer is a unique experience for you, your group and for us.

After you are ready, kitted out and briefed we’ll explore our way along the coast looking for exciting places to make your adventure even more breathtaking.

Imagine swimming through a 50 metre long cave in crystal clear water, climbing into a blow hole chamber, spotting a seal just a few metres away or simply stopping on a ledge to watch the gulls flying by before you leap up to 30 feet into the sea below. This is a typical Coasteering experience.
