Coasteering Cardigan

Prepare for an exhilarating adventure like no other with Cardigan Bay Active’s Coasteering experience. Dive into the thrill of exploring the stunning coastline of Cardigan Bay while immersing yourself in the natural wonders that await. Get ready to embark on a unique journey filled with excitement, adrenaline, and unforgettable moments.

What is Coasteering?

Coasteering was born here in West Wales, inspired by the rugged coastline of West Pembrokeshire. Coasteering is a journey along the tidal margin which combines a mix of swimming, scrambling and jumping. No two coasteer's are ever the same— the wind, waves and tide are constantly changing the sea conditions so you’re always guaranteed a unique journey.

Coasteering is an active journey along the tidal margin which presents challenges along the way. Using a mix of climbing, scrambling, leaping, traversing, swimming, sliding, ducking and jumping you will experience our wild coast through the zawns, gullies, caves, cliffs and reefs of the Pembrokeshire and Cardigan Bay coast.

Why Coasteer with CBA?

Cardigan Bay Active provides both family and adult coasteering sessions which allows us to cater for all the needs of your group.

Our qualified, local instructors will lead your group into areas of the coast which would be inaccessible unless you give it a go, giving you the opportunity to see spectacular geology and marine life in untouched habitats.

We split our coasteering adventures to cater for family groups with young children and the older and perhaps more adventurous to ensure that nobody is pushed outside what they feel comfortable doing. This provide a safe and enjoyable experience, no matter your age, ability or experience.

All of our coasteering trips return to the same location.

Can we do coasteering in the rain?

Yes - Coasteering in the rain is fine, personally I love heavy rain when swimming in water watching the rain drops land and erupt.

What happens if the sea is really rough?

Rough seas can make the coasteering more fun in most cases, however, it is really rough we will contact you prior to the session to make alternative arrangements. This could be a different location which is protected from the rough sea or an alternative activity if they sea really is unsafe to be in.

Can we change our activities?

Yes, you would just need to let us know in advance, and the more notice you give us the more flexible we can be.

Can I wear contact lenses or glasses?

Yes: people do wear contact lenses coasteering and say it's ok.

Glasses can be worn but it's best to have a leash attached. If they fall off or get broken we cannot be held responsible. If they are important to your driving, think wisely before taking on session or bring a spare pair to be on the safe side.

What group sizes can you accommodate?

Large and small groups can be accommodated for coasteering sessions please contact us for more information.

Do we need to be able to swim?

No it is unnecessary for any of our coasteering sessions. We provide you with enough floating kit that all you need to do is move your arms to move around kind of like making snow angels. 

Do you have equipment to fit all sizes?

Yes - we have a wide range of sizes in all of our equipment. Before you head out on your activities, our coasteering instructors will ensure that all equipment fits correctly and they'll make any necessary changes where needed. Our adult buoyancy aids go up to size 4XL.

What if I have a medical condition?

Our Instructors are trained to deal with different situations, so we can easily accommodate people with diabetes, asthma, mild epilepsy, autism and more. Please contact us if you have any questions. If you require a waterproof container to bring medication please let us know in advance.
