We are completely immersed in nature here on our peninsula in Studland on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, watching our heath, shoreline and woodland change throughout the seasons is a constant source of inspiration for us. We have designed our foraging and wild food adventures to get you close to nature and to let us guide you through what makes this area of Dorset so special and unique.

For my sons Birthday we had a coasteering session and I can't fault it. On the walk down from the car park to Dancing Ledge the scenery was amazing. All equipment was provided and full instructions were made very clear. It was a challenging and exhilarating experience and no pressure was made to complete the higher jumps, although the older teens and hubby were eager to do it! If you are after a challenge then I can highly recommend coasteering with Dan and the team - the perfect activity for families with teens!

In the event of an incident all of our guides carry personal locator beacons so that help will come straight away. Once activated, the signal is detected by a satellite and sent to a Mission Control Centre (MCC) where it is decoded and forwarded to the nearest Rescue Coordination Centre. Luckily we have never had to use them but we carry them so you are in the safest hands.
