Oban Coasteering Adventure

Explore some of the most exciting and spectacular coastline Scotland has to offer.

Swim, climb and jump your way along the coast close to the popular seaside town of Oban. Combining wild swimming, caves and gullies, rock traversing and cliff jumping, coasteering is a great way to discover otherwise inaccessable terrain, along with the view and nature they have to offer!

Open to children ages 8 and up, this wild coasteering adventure is perfect fun for all the family.

Duration (Exact): You can expect to be with us for up to 4 hours; the canyoning itself will last between 2 and 3 hours.
Booking Availability: Vertical Descents run coasteering April - October every day at 10am and 2pm. Minimum group size for booking is 2, so if you book solo you will be added to a group of other adventurers; after booking you will be contacted to arrange your session.
What You'll Need: All equipment is provided by the centre. We recommend you don't bring your own wetsuit, as coasteering involves a lot of climbing across rough surfaces that could cause damage. Just bring something to wear under a wetsuit (swimming clothing is advised), some old trainers, a towl and warm clothing to wear afterwards.
Ability Level Requirements: No previous coasteering experience is required, although you should be confident swimming in coastal water wearing a bouyancy aid, and jumping into water from reasonable heights (to get the most from the experience).
Physical Requirements: A sense of adventure is the key requirement! The Minimum age is 8, however the key critera is whether the child fits into the smallest wetsuit size. Fitness is not critical, however coasteering is a physical activity, so expect a workout!
Instruction/Guiding Details: You will have a guide with you throughout this experience.
Getting There: Meet at the Corran Halls car park. The team will see you there.
