Why everybody should try Coasteering

Why you need to try Coasteering.

Coasteering - an exhilarating outdoor activity that combines elements of swimming, climbing, scrambling, and jumping into the ocean from coastal rocks and tidal islands. It's a thrilling adventure that everyone should try at least once in their lifetime

Why, you ask? Well, let us tell you about the incredible experiences you'll gain while coasteering, here in the United Kingdom.

Coasteering and marine wildlife.

One of the most captivating aspects of coasteering is the opportunity to experience marine wildlife and explore this usually inaccessible marine environment.

The UK boasts a varied coastline, teeming with marine life, from playful seals and dolphins to a multitude of colourful fish and unique bird species.

By immersing yourself in the ocean and navigating along cliffs and tidal islands, you'll be able to witness first-hand the beauty and diversity of the UK's marine ecosystem. It's a chance to connect with nature in a way that few other activities offer.

If you are coasteering with Ocean Vertical in East Lothian there's a huge diversity of wildlife you can expect to see. You will be looking out to the Bass Rock which can have up to 150,000 gannets nesting on it! You will also see puffins, terns and eider ducks.

In the rocks and kelp beds you will see star fish and sea urchins, along with great seals, and the occasional dolphin.

Coasteering – a personal challenge.

Not only does coasteering allow you to experience the wonders of the marine world, but it also presents a personal challenge that can be immensely rewarding.

Scaling cliffs, traversing rocky outcrops, and leaping into the open water require a combination of physical strength, mental fortitude, and calculated risk-taking.

Overcoming these challenges fosters a sense of accomplishment and builds self-confidence. Plus, the adrenaline rush you'll get from conquering those fears and pushing your limits is truly addictive!

Coasteering is also "adventure by choice". There are always options from the more challenging, to easier routes as the group moves around the coastline.

We all have a different level of adventure which is why coasteering is so accessible. Anyone can do it, and decide their own limits with the professional coasteering guides.
