“I can’t recommend Coasteering in Dorset enough. The trip was interesting, professional and best of all fun. We all felt safe at all times, although there were some challenging sections to explore should you want to. The area was simply stunning, clear water and hidden coves. It made a nice change to view the famous coast line from the sea. I can’t wait to embark on another tour!”

Coasteering in Dorset - Jumping inMore about coasteering……
Coasteering is a physical activity that encompasses movement along the inter-tidal zone of a rocky coastline on foot or by swimming, without the aid of boats, surf boards or other craft. It is difficult to define the precise boundaries between, for example, rockpooling and ocean swimming. Coasteering may include all or some of the following:
Swimming or Adventure Swimming: in calm water; rough or white water; and/ or tidal currents. Dressing for swimming in the sea (wetsuits, buoyancy aids etc) is an integral part of Coasteering; even on routes where it is possible to stay dry. A route, or activity, where the group start out with the intention of staying dry – whether through route choice or the use of ropes and harnesses – is not coasteering.
Climbing, scrambling, canyoning, sea level traversing: the very nature of the coastline that is needed for coasteering demands aspects of these activities. Ropes, as security on rock, are not used. Any climbing activity usually takes place above deep water, with safety spotters used where appropriate. There is a similarity to the sport of deep water soloing, but this would normally be carried out by experienced individuals not wearing equipment suitable for coasteering.
Coasteering is never a dry, climbing activity. Jumping and Diving: are often seen as an appealing and exciting part of coasteering – these activities actually make up minimal content of a coasteering session. A defining factor of coasteering is the opportunity provided by the marine geology for moving in the “impact zone” where water, waves, rocks, gullies, caves etc, come together to provide a very high energy environment.
