If you arrive later than 10 mins the session would have started without you and you have to rebook - get up earlier!

 

Coasteering:

 

LOCATION IS AT postcode - BH19 3HG (which is along Durnford Drove road) follow road until you get to small turning circle

Follow a small road slightly uphill for 120m passing LANGTON house on your LEFT 

Follow bumpy track another 120m, there is a small grass car park at the end) Wait in this car park for your Instructor.  Arrival 10 mins prior is fine.

DO NOT USE THE POOLE / SANDBANKS CHAIN FERRY as you'll end up in a queue.  Even if you miss it and your at the FRONT (Unlikely) of the queue, you'll wait another 20 mins for the next ferry

 

1.  Selected dates can only work if there are a minimum of 8 persons to make it work

 

2.  KIT -  Whilst your Coasteering you'll wear one of our wetsuits.  You need to bring to wear underneath your wetsuit:

Swimsuit / trunks

Long sleeved high collar thermal top or rash vest

Wetsuit socks OR Thick woolly socks (Mar - Sep dates only)

Trainers you don't mind getting wet in (no crocs, Riva flipflops or wetshoes as these fall off in the waves!!)

Board shorts (Rugby shorts or leggings) - to wear over your wetsuits to protect our 5mm £150 wetsuit...)

Some simple cheap gloves (£2.99 from B&Q perhaps - not required in months of Jun -Sep)

 

Bring in car -

Flip flops to wear after you've taken off your wetsuit at end of session

Towel

Warm clothing

Waterproof jacket

Pint of wine or Procesco..... joking !

 

In a small daysack to carry down with you -

Woolly hat and gloves (subject to weather)

Water and chocolate bar

500ml water

In summer months of Jun - Sep only bring water down

 

We provide 5/4mm Tiki wetsuits, Buoyancy aids, Helmet and sometimes wetsuit socks and skull hats to keep your head warm. (Winter months)

 

3.  Under 18yrs must be accompanied by one of their parents, who can watch from the cliffs for 80% of the time - good photograph opportunities.

 

4.  Min age is 9yrs (or over 130cm) and max is 69yrs, however, you must be no larger than 6ft 5" and 110kg/17st. as they don't make wetsuits in the Tiki, Circle ONE or Crewsaver range bigger than this....

 

5.  If you are late the sesion starts without you.

 

5a. Contact lenses - a few times last season participants with contacts lenses wore either swimming goggles over the top.... OR dependant on their sight they swam closer to the instructor.  Its all dependant on the waves.  Obviously, you do jump in up to 24ft (optional) off some ledges, closing eyes does work for the majority of contact lense wearers....

 

6.  There is a 22mins walk (1.4km) from the car park to the activity site once you have met your instructor and been issued wetsuits, with the return journey taking up to 35mins for some.......as its a hill back up

 

7.  You will be getting changed in a public NT car park, no toilets, just bushes and the great outdoors !

 

8.  Date changes - if you change your date inside 28 days from your planned session an admin surcharge of £10 per participant will be charged.

 

9. If you change dates within 4 days, a standard Coasteering rate will apply as we still have to pay the instructor for the session you've cancelled.

 

9a. If you "NO SHOW UP" as its a little cold, not sunny, car breakdown or got stuck in traffic.  You loose the session and have to rebook at the standard rate for Coasteering.  Think of it like a flight for your holiday.  All the other passengers want to partake at their chosen time too.

 

10.  CANCELLATION - You'll be notified by email or text or phone if session is cancelled due to strong winds which makes the waves too big

We will notify you between 12-24hrs prior to the session as the UK weather is a variable moving beast for all outdoor activities.

 

Climbing:

 

1.  All the same as above, if you have your own climbing harness or climbing shoes please bring them.

 

2.  No need to bring swimwear!
