Coasteering

Coasteering

Coasteering is an activity ran by many providers around the Welsh coast, most popularily on Gower and in Pembrokeshire. The activity consists of jumping, plunging, traversing, climbing, swimming, cave exploration and marine life watching, it is a great activity for all age groups!

Instructors who take coasteering are very knowledgeable of the sea and how it works, we know where to go and where not to go to make sure that a fantastic time is had by all in the safest possible way!

When you come Coasteering with us you will be provided with a wetsuit, buoyancy aid and helmet!

And you will need to bring your swimsuit (to go underneath the wetsuit), a spare pair of strong shoes to wear in the sea, some shorts to go over your wetsuit to avoid bum scuffs! Also always good to remember a towel too :)

Waves and Tides

Waves and Tides

Fun Facts

Did you know that ocean tides are created by a combination of the gravitational pull of the moon and the sun combined with the rotation of the earth!

Most places have two high tides and low tides per day

There are times during the earth's rotation that the moon and the sun are on the same side and this causes larger tides, these are known as Spring Tides.

The important stuff..

Whenever you head to the beach always check the tides, you may get to the beach and it will be a high tide and the beach will not be accessible. 

Always be cautious about when the tide is going out or coming in, be careful not to get cut off by the tide.

Waves are not safe environments to play in, the sea is very unpredictable and what looks like fun could end in tragedy with bigger waves taking you out to sea.
