JUNIOR COASTEER

Junior coasteers is for individual youngsters plus friends aged 7yrs to 17yrs.

Coasteering is a super fun activity and perfect for juniors learning to build water confidence and environmental knowledge. Our coasteering offers snorkelling, wildlife introductions, climbing and jumps. Bigger tides and surf add variety.

Juniors must be confident and be able to swim a minimum of 50m.

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 positive government restrictions

  • 13th July Juniors can create activity bubbles, allowing close contact games and activity to return in class time.  Once the class is over 12yrs + must socially distance again – Sports Scotland.
