What people say about us
Just back from a day with Stevie and Adrian. Both are masters of there trade. Making sure everyone was comfortable and understanding the terrain. I felt in very safe hands on my first winter mountaineering day out with the boys. I would highly recommend Ocean Vertical to everyone thinking of winter mountaineering in Scotland. Both guys’ are very knowledgeable of mountains and the surrounding areas. I’ll definitely be back out with Ocean Vertical very soon!
Just had an amazing morning out climbing with my friend at Ocean Vertical. I didn’t know you could do real rock climbing in East Lothian.
I don’t have much experience but I felt safe and the guys really knew what they were doing. I feel a lot more confident now and it was even sunny! We will be back!
I went on a coasteering session in East Lothian yesterday and absolutely loved it!!
I would recommend this to anyone who has a sense of adventure… it’s definitely an experience you won’t forget and Stevie, Adrian and Gavin were super experienced and knowledgeable. What an amazing thing to do in East Lothian.
Exhilarating, Stunning, Nerve-wracking, Challenging, Body rush…
What an adventure…
Spent Sunday afternoon coasteering in East Lothian with the fantastic team from Ocean Vertical round the craggy cliffs at Dunbar.
Stevie, Gav and Adrian were so knowledgeable about the area and they and made you feel very safe whilst encouraging you to push yourself. We jumped off rocks and dived through the swell increasing the difficulty as we went.
If you haven’t done it before, go for it, you will love it.
Thanks, guys for an amazing day.
Five stars. Had a brilliant paddle board session with coach Stevie. The advice helped so much, in particular, the video analysis I would recommend, it made a huge difference to my technique.
I’d highly recommend Ocean Vertical if you want to go paddle boarding in East Lothian. The coach made me feel so positive and able to try harder skills than I thought I could. So patient with me.
Love the knowledge and skills I gained and will be back for sure.
Thanks so much.
What a day! Spectacular weather and views. Lots of snow and it was freezing! First time with an ice axe and crampons. The guys at Ocean Vertical were brilliant. We talked about planning, decision-making, navigation and how to use our technical equipment – I now know how to fit a crampon! Huge thanks and will be back!
First time with an ice axe and crampons! What a day in the Glen Coe mountains with Ocean Vertical. It was absolutely breath taking with amazing views and lots of snow! Feeling a lot more confident after this trip and cant wait to get out again….. Brilliant!
I went out paddle boarding at the stunning Seacliff beach in East Lothian with Ocean Vertical last week, superb evening on the water, great tuition, the weather cleared up and we were joined by a grey seal and puffins!
Adrian and Stevie are both full of enthusiasm and you all need to give it a try 10/10.
Fantastic day out with Stevie and Adrian today climbing Stob Ghabhar. Scottish winter mountaineering at its best! These guys really know their stuff and I felt in very safe hands for my first venture up to this height in winter.
Amazing experience and I learned to use an ice axe and crampons! to be repeated! Highly recommended!
Ocean Vertical is brought together by people who live and breathe the mountain and outdoor life to the full extent. I have spent an absolutely amazing time with Stevie and Adrian and Ocean Vertical climbing in the Scottish mountains.
The practical and technical information they pass on to people is truly their passion, and it is felt on the journey, in the mountains and their lifestyle.
The way they would like to educate people about the outdoors is a remarkable and first-hand experience, it feels as if you are talking to the mountain itself, getting answers from the direct source.
They will take you perhaps to your great unknown and leave you with the feeling that you have accomplished something, learnt something new and that now you are a part of a community where you can always return to.
I thoroughly enjoy spending time mountaineering in Scotland with them and cannot wait to learn more from and with them! See you on the next adventure!
Sunday Funday!! Coasteering in East Lothian today with the incredible Ocean Vertical.
Didn’t even realize an experience like this was possible and it’s right at our doorstep! Embarked on this adventure today with the amazing Lizzy – Stevie Boyle and Adrian Boot coached us through it and led the way – they are top class! Highly, highly recommend this! Check out Ocean Vertical and get yourself out there!
We went coasteering in Dunbar with a group of friends and had an amazing time! Swimming, climbing and jumping off cliffs in impressive and wild scenery.
We were with a small group and were impressed by the quality of the equipment and excellent guides. I would definitely recommend this activity to everyone who’s looking for a memorable outdoor activity in East Lothian, Scotland!
