Coasteering is an exhilarating activity for people of all and Pembrokeshire’s coastline is abundant in opportunities to take part in this activity – in fact, many Pembrokeshire businesses have been innovators of the sport since the 1960’s. On a sunny day with blue skies, calm sea and small waves the hazards are limited but the sea can be unpredictable. Proper equipment and experience are essential for a safe trip.
The geology, wildlife and unspoilt environment are some of the main attractions of coasteering. Respecting them is vital to minimise the potential damage done by the passage of thousands of people. Anyone who goes coasteering has a responsibility to look after the coastal wildlife and environment.
Best Practice Guidelines
The Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter Group have worked with other coasteering companies in Wales, the National Coasteering Charter (NCC), Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Natural Resources Wales and other conservation organisations to design best practice guidelines and a code of conduct for all coasteering groups.
