We booked the new HQ facility for an office social. Really can’t recommend it highly enough. We had teams of people doing the coasteering, paddle boarding and a Wellbeing Experience so there was something for everyone. I tried the paddle boarding and the quality of the tuition and the gear was great.The facility has a great set up and the after-activity BBQ in the courtyard was a great way for everyone to catch up before sitting down to a very nice dinner. Everyone who I have spoken to thoroughly enjoyed it.
I spent a brilliant afternoon Coasteering with Ocean Vertical; climbing, swimming, scrambling and jumping off rocks into the sea by Dunbar in East lothian. I was able to disconnect from the busyness of normal life and enjoy a magical couple of hours exploring a totally new environment, scrambling over inaccessible tidal islands, connecting with local marine wildlife and having serious fun. Adrian and Stevie nudge you safely out of your comfort zone, jumping 25 feet into the water or going through underwater passes is not normal for me! After playing rugby professionally nothing provides a buzz quite the same but this came very close.
Our team of 20 had a fantastic corporate activity day at Ocean Vertical! The selection of activities offered to the team suited both the thrill seekers and those in need of some R&R. Staff were amazing, the location was stunning in East Lothian, and the food, BBQ and drinks in the evening were just fantastic. A good time was had by all – Thank you Ocean Vertical!
Amazing corporate day out doing coasteering, with colleagues also participating in paddle boarding and mindfulness in East Lothian. This was topped off with an amazing dinner and drinks in the evening in a beautiful venue – I will be going back.Thanks to everyone at Ocean Vertical
A new twist on a corporate day out – Coasteering: scrambling, swimming and jumping into the sea in East Lothian! Along with paddle boarding and mindfulness sessions. Was a brilliant shared experience, would definitely recommend. Staying on for a BBQ and beers in the courtyard was a fantastic way to reflect on and embellish stories from earlier in the day! 5 stars.
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!
Very enjoyable, we really enjoyed seeing the coastline from another perspective Coasteering in East Lothian, as well as meeting some of the local sea faring residents (sea urchins, starfish and seals). The session was great fun mixed with a good kick of adrenaline; Stevie is a skilled and experienced guide and we felt safe and informed throughout our experience.Thanks Ocean Vertical!
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. That you Ocean Vertical – 5 stars :]
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!
We had the best morning with Ocean Vertical. We booked the 3 hour surfing session in East Lothian. It was absolutely brilliant. They provided everything we needed. Their facilities, from changing to minibus, were super. There were 2 amazingly knowledgeable instructors and only 6 participants in the group so we got lots of personal support and feedback. The instructors were so friendly and encouraging. I would highly recommend Ocean Vertical and can’t wait to go back. I will be telling all my friends and family to book some fun activities! Thanks for a fantastic morning Ocean Vertical!
