As a sport coasteering has boomed in the last decade this sport goes hand in hand with our other passion in life surfing. Spending so many hours in the sea surfing it’s only natural to look for other pursuits in the same environment offering a similar adrenaline rush experienced whilst surfing hence the passion for coasteering was born.

We work very closely with King Surf who provide the best surf lessons in the land! In our eyes this is the perfect activity to go hand in hand with each other King Surf has been running for 15 years now and has grown year on year and is now a leading surf school provider in the county.

The beauty of coasteering is that anyone can do it! Due to our in-depth local knowledge of the coastline and a decade of working in the industry, we can tailor any of the coasteer routes to suit the needs of the group, making the session a truly accessible and memorable experiences for everyone; the young, the old, the curious, the nervous, the brazen and the bold. Being among a plucky few to have tried the UK’s fastest growing adventure sport makes you part of a unique clan of adventurous souls who have coasteered. If you know, you know.

Push your limits, break down barriers and enhance your life with an experience like no other. When you coasteer with King Coasteer, you’ll find yourself on the edge of the world (sometimes literally!).
