AN ISLE of Wight coasteering attraction was founded earlier this year, offering a new exciting outdoor activity for Islanders and tourists alike.

Founded by Chris Mannion and Adam Barnes, Freshwater Bay Coasteering (FBC) takes visitors on a two-hour adventure along the West Wight coast.

Coasteering is an adventure sport that treats the national environment as a giant eco playground, allowing you to navigate along a stretch of coastline using different methods, including rock climbing, sea swimming, body surfing, caving and even belly-flopping!

Upon arrival at FBC, visitors will be kitted out with a warm winter wetsuit, a buoyancy aid and a helmet.

During sessions, the guides will give detailed instructions on how to complete each section and will tailor the session to the visitor’s requirements.

Chris and Adam are seasoned watersports instructors and have worked together for the last six years.

Between them, they have over 50 years of watersports knowledge and are extremely passionate about helping others enjoy and learn from everything the coast has to offer.

Speaking about what is on offer at FBC, Chris said: “Coasteering is not always about jumps. It is more about using the natural area as a playground.

“Exploring the caves, traversing along the cliff base, and there are some jumps, but we will not make anyone do anything they don’t want to.”

One reviewer said: “The wetsuits were brilliant, and we weren’t cold at all.

“We didn’t feel any pressure to do any of the jumps, but we were all up for it!

“The caves were hilarious being sloshed around like a washing machine. Be prepared to ache a bit the next day!”
