For the Eco-Coasteering we tone down the adrenalin and turn on the educational tour, though we will of course include jumps as part of the course as an option for the more adventurous.
A half day of Eco-Coasteering will take you on a coastal journey with a knowledgeable guide around parts of the normally inaccessible coastline of Anglesey. By joining us on a thrilling Eco-Coasteering adventure, you will be guided along the impact zone where the waves meet the rocks and learn about the geology and the many wonderful types of marine life living in the rockpools and caves.
During the session, you will encounter wildlife havens within shallow pools of salty water, these rockpools are wonderful places to see some of the rich variety of weird and wonderful marine life that can be found around our coast. They are windows into the underwater world, full of amazing sea creatures and they'll give you a good idea of how rich in plants and animals much of our seabed is.
Most of Anglesey's 125 miles of coastline has been classified as an area of outstanding natural beauty, with hidden coves, sand dunes, European awarded Blue flag beaches and incredible sea cliff geology, making it an ideal place for leisure and learning opportunities.
Wales has some wonderful sandy beaches, but a large area of the Welsh shore is covered in rocks, sometimes flat expanses with shallow rockpools, sometimes with pillars of rock – often called stacks – covered in barnacles and limpets with deeper pools in between. The area of rockpools in Wales is around 353 hectares, which is equal to 2,824 Olympic swimming pools or over 700 football pitches!
If an enjoyable and educational adventure experience is what you’re looking for, then this is the course for you!
