What activities can I do?
Choose your adventure activities from:
Coasteering The ultimate coastal adventure – climb, swim and jump into a whole new world! Coasteering is the perfect way to explore the sea caves, rocky arches and secret channels hidden along the coast. Our expert guides take you out to enjoy a fanastic wilderness experience. Try cliff jumping and playing in the swirling ocean swells – its open to everyone, anyone can do it both young and old. But Watch out – it’s addictive!
Sea Kayaking Kayak beneath towering sea cliffs and into sun-dappled caves, weave your way through amazing rock gardens and enjoy the exhilaration of surfing through rocky channels as you go “rock-hopping”. Rocks, caves, seals, birds, waves, surf, beaches, fishing harbours and much more make this a real sea kayaker’s paradise. Preseli Venture take you on a wonderful kayaking exploration along the Pembrokeshire coast, one of the UK’s premiere kayaking locations.
Surfing The art and science of riding clean ocean swells on idyllic sandy beach breaks. With a little help from our talented guides you’ll be standing up in no time. If you’ve always wanted to learn to surf, now is the time, and we are blessed with perfect unspoilt beaches and professional guides.
Coastal walking We’ve got the world renowned Pembrokeshire National Park Coastal Trail on the very Western tip of Europe right on our doorstep. Unwind amidst the spectacular cliff top scenery and chill out amongst the wild flowers – it’s the perfect accompaniment to the adrenalin charged adventure activities.

The activities are open to everyone, you don’t need to have previous experience and you don’t need to be fit or outdoorsy, just come equipped with a ‘go for it’ attitude and a sense of fun! You’ll need to fit into a wetsuit – our equipment stores are chock full of kit to fit most sizes – and ideally you have a basic swimming ability, but the kit makes you super floaty so don’t worry too much, doggy paddle is fine! When you get here you’ll need to fill in a medical declaration form, and make us aware of any pre existing medical conditions or injuries. If you have any questions at all regarding swimming ability (or lack of!) or medical issues, please do contact us and we can answer any questions.
