This product is specifically for families from the same household and is limited to a maximum of 4 households per lesson.

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 20mins walk from the centre – so please add 40 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

  • FOUR households maximum per lesson (max 8 customers per session). If the customer is from a different address they need to book as a second household.

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