Our two low tide coasteers zones offer more variety, with jumps of all sizes, channels, caves, surge zones (if surf), good climbing, open water swimming and snorkelling all while exploring the coast!

The low tide sessions are good for older juniors/more confident adults but we can cater for mixed ability. Excellent for building water confidence, pushing personal limits or as a team building experience. Even more of a buzz in surf!

Coasteering starts in May and runs to end September.

We are also approved by the Adventure Activities Licensing Service.

” I had a brilliant morning of coasteering in Dunbar. There was a good swell in the sea, which added to the excitement. The instructor was great - observant, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the marine creatures we came across. We did a number of exhilarating jumps. Overall I had a great sense of achievement and would recommend it. ”
