Coasteering Safety

COASTEERING IN NEWQUAY SAFETY INFORMATION

Safety in the water is our number one priority. Ensuring that all participants are well informed and understand the potential dangers of the sea is a main objective when introducing newcomers to Coasteering.

All of our Coasteering sessions are delivered by highly trained and qualified staff that each hold valid certificates for the activities that they instruct. Throughout the year we hold regular in-house training sessions to help keep us all up to date with the recognised best practise.

NATIONAL COASTEER CHARTER

Recognised by AALA (the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority) and RNLI Lifeboats the NCC is an advisory committee to the activity of coasteering which focusses on setting industry standards, environment sustainability and acts as a medium for Coasteer providers to unite, share best practises and grow the activity of coasteering collectively.

We are active members of the NCC which has been formed and lead by some of the UK’s most experienced Coasteer guides.

QUALIFIED BEACH LIFEGUARDS

All of our Coasteer guides hold a Beach Lifeguard Certificate. This professional qualification demonstrates a proficiency infitness, surf lifesaving and first aid abilities.

The beach lifeguard qualification is refreshed every two years keeping candidates up to date, in line with best practises and helps surf coach or Coasteer guide to deliver your activity in a safe, educated and professional manner.

LOCAL KNOWLEDGE
