I did a coasteering adventure few weeks ago and it was the funnest and most exciting thing ever! Although it looked a bit dangerous when I saw videos online prior to the session, on the day Adam helped me feel confident and safe. He went over every step carefully and prepared us for jumping by gradually increasing heights. Every activity was optional and the atmosphere was great. I honestly can’t wait to do it again!
Had a fantastic time coasteering around Portknockie out towards bow fiddle rock. Adam was very patient and encouraging especially to so ek e who doesn't do heights. Sea was calm and day was hot, a lovely afternoon and a rea treat for my son and myself. Thanks Adam - we had a blast!
I had great fun coasteering with Adam and a small group around portknockie, highly recommend giving it a go. I'm already wanting to do it again!
Booked an end of summer family (including 2 young adults) coasteering trip. Adam was a great guide, with just the right level of challenge to push everyone to the edge of their comfort zone and have a great time. It was fantastic exploring the coastline off of Portknockie, a great way to get a different view of the coast. Would highly recommend, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be back for paddleboarding or surfing.
