HOUSEHOLD COASTEER

This product is just for phase 2 of lockdown where bookings are restricted to households . June 24th-July 9th.

Coasteering is a super fun family activity and will be organised subject to tide and group dynamics. If we have younger families for example we will pick easier routes and offer a gentle introduction to coasteering with more snorkelling, wildlife introductions and smaller jumps. For households with mainly adults or teenagers that are confident we will look at  bigger tides and variety.

Please note that are COASTEERING takes place 15mins walk from the centre – so please add 30 minutes to estimated class times. Coasteer classes normally run in most conditions however in extreme conditions we offer surf sports as alternative on the day (if big swell) or the ability to re-schedule or receive a voucher for a future date.

Please note these lessons are currently subject to the following government restrictions

  • Local only bookings from June 24th – July 2nd (you must have an address within 5 miles of Dunbar to book at this phase)
  • Bookings outside local area July 3rd- July 9th (please see normal lessons from 10th July)
  • Two households maximum per lesson (max 7 customers per session)

A full list of our procedures and expectations are on our CV19 page.
