What is Coasteering?

Coasteering is an adventurous activity, taking you away from the surfing paradise (and our home) that is Great Western Beach to the rugged and truly spectacular cliffs, in the area known as The Gazzle.

After a safety briefing, armed with full safety equipment and buoyancy aids and under the guidance of our expert team, you will tackle The Gazzle’s awesome cliff faces, jumping off into deep coastal pools, and swimming through caves. And with a bit of luck, you’ll also catch some of our stunning local wildlife, including seals and seabirds.

Coasteering is truly a memorable activity like no other.

We schedule our coasteers around the tides. We have a weekly coasteer scheduled on Sundays. If you’d like to enquire about a coasteer on another day of the week please either phone us or enquire through the contact form on this page.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What safety precautions are taken?

    All of our coasteering guides are fully trained and have hundreds of hours of experience between them. They are also Life Guard trained and First-Aid qualified.

    On top of this, we provide bouncy aides and helmets to help those who are less comfortable in the water and for extra protection when climbing through caves.

    Will I go on the same route if I go again?

    Every Coasteer is different. We have many different locations which all vary depending on the tide, so it’s unlikely that you’ll do the same route twice in a row!

    If you’re unsure, you can always mention which route you have done before when making a booking and we’ll suggest a good alternative route to your previous route.

    Alternatively, if you had an amazing time on your first time around and want to do the same again, we can try to get back to your favourite areas!

    Do I need to know how to swim?

    It helps to have some swimming experience. Everyone is given a bouncy aid which will keep you afloat. If you cannot swim more than 50 metres, you will need to make this known on your Activity Waiver.  Please also confirm with your instructor before the start of your Coasteer.
