Well, it looks like summer has finally arrived – at least here in Devon! The sun is shining and we couldn’t be more excited to get out and sharing some awesome activities with our customers at Rock and Rapid Adventures! We’ve got an amazing summer ahead, full of climbing, watersports and fun days out in the South West.
But one activity that really is perfect for this time of year is coasteering. This popular extreme sport is a mixture of scrambling, wild swimming and jumping, and is the perfect way to get out and about in the sunny months.
So what’s it all about? Here are our top five reasons to try coasteering this summer!
It’s several adventurous activities in one!
If you’re not sure whether you want to try out climbing, wild swimming, cliff jumping or hiking this summer, then look no further, because coasteering encompasses all of these activities in one! Whilst coasteering, you will get to experience a range of fun pursuits, beginning with hiking to your starting point on the coastline, before scrambling across sea-level boulders, then jumping into the sea and wild swimming back to dry land. This means you get to try out elements of rock climbing, watersports and much more. So, if you’re a real adrenaline-seeker and can’t choose just one activity to test out this summer, coasteering will certainly fulfil your need for thrill.
Anyone can do it
What’s so great about coasteering is that it’s an activity that anyone can try out! There is no previous experience required to take part in a coasteering session – besides being a confident swimmer and comfortable in the sea. This makes it the perfect activity for people of all ages and dispositions. So, whether you’re planning a stag or hen do in Devon, looking for a family activity, planning a school group trip or organising a child’s birthday party, coasteering is a great choice. Just bring along some old trainers and an adventurous spirit and you’re good to go!
You get to explore the Devon coastline
There’s nothing like a bit of sunshine to remind us how lucky we are to live in this beautiful corner of the world than a bit of summertime sunshine. And what better way to make the most of it than getting out coasteering on the North Devon coastline? We hold our coasteering sessions off the shoreline of beautiful Croyde, an idyllic seaside village popular with surfers, watersports fans and beachgoers alike. But don’t just settle for a sunbathe and paddle – explore this unique coastline in an exhilarating way, climbing across the rocks and jumping into the clear waters on a coasteering adventure.
It’s good exercise!
Whilst coasteering is primarily all about having fun, an added bonus is that it’s also great exercise! Coasteering combines several different kinds of cardiovascular exercise, from hiking to your start point for a nice warm-up, to the full-body workout of scrambling across rocks and swimming in the sea. Plus, the adrenaline rush of the jump will increase your heart rate! This means that coasteering will help keep you fit while you’re having fun. Perfect!
Make the most of the weather!
Believe it or not, coasteering is a more or less all-weather activity. We provide wetsuits, so whether the sea is toasty warm (unlikely) or its usual nippy temperature, you’re all set for the day. However, it can’t be denied that any outdoor activity is all the more enjoyable when the sun in shining. So why not make the most of it while it lasts with an unforgettable coasteering session? We promise you won’t regret it!
