WHAT IS COASTEERING?
Coasteering is a mixture of rock scrambling, adventure swimming, jumping. exploring and adventuring until your face hurts from smiling.

HOW LONG IS THE TOUR?
The Tour consists of 2 – 2.5 hours water time. Allowing time to get to us (20/25 mins from Tralee, Listowel, Ballybunion), to get changed and kitted out  and for a safety brief you would need to allow a half day. After all, we all deserve a half day.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING? 
You only need to a bring swim suit and a towel, an old pair of trainers that will
get wet and a pair of shorts to wear over the wet suit. We will provide all the important stuff to keep you warm, safe and comfortable.
If you are on holidays and don’t have shorts and trainers don’t panic, just inform us when booking and we can provide them for you.

WILL I BE COLD?
You will be provided with a warm winter wet suit.  It is only the initial
cold flush of water through the suit when you first enter the water and then your suit starts to do its job. You should be comfortable for the rest of the tour.

DO I NEED TO BE ABLE TO SWIM?
Believe it or not, NO. If you can move your arms you can go coasteering. Feel confident in the ocean as our suits are super buoyant you are also provided with a Helly Hanson Buoyancy Aid.
You are in safe hands because all our guides are qualified Beach Lifeguards and we tailor each tour to suit the needs and abilities of each group.

If you’re smiling we’re  doing our job.

IS THERE A MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT?
Yes, participants need to be at least 10 years old for Coasteering. There is no maximum age limit, the oldest we have had so far is a know no fear granny, aged 65 …looking for a new record holder!!

IT’S RAINING, CAN WE GO COASTEERING?
It’s not a silly question, it is Ireland after all, YES WE CAN!
We are going to be getting wet anyway and there is something quite beautiful about the sound of rain on the ocean.

WHERE DO WE MEET?
As we use several different locations depending on wind direction and sea conditions we will verify the location of your tour nearer to the date of your activity. All tours are within 25 mins of Tralee.
