I went coasteering with Cumulus at the weekend with a group of 18 friends/family and I can say that we all had an amazing time. Loads of fun, totally bonkers to be jumping into the sea on a wet and cold november day with a sore head, but it was'nt actually that cold!
The wet suits and clothing we were all given was good quality, the staff were all competent and more than able to round-up and organise a large party of extremely hungover people.
We were split into two manageable groups for the first hour then all came back together at the end. The sea was fairly choppy with some big swells so we were able to catch the swell as we jumped off the rocks and got swept with the current round into the bay. There were some very reluctant people at the start of the session and a whole group of very enthusiastic people at the end which was down to the staff encouragement and genuine love of the sport. Thanks Lads will probably see you again next summer. Paul

An amazing all around experience of the beautiful Dorset coastline. In the very capable, knowledgeable and fun hands of the guides at Cumulus you will have a great time coasteering and come home with some great memories.

Had an amazing day on my birthday with 10 friends, abseiling off Dancing Ledge in Swanage. Several of us were scared of heights and really challenging ourselves to this. Russell made us feel confident and even managed to get a smile out of me half way down! He encouraged each of us to challenge ourselves without scaring us or pushing us and this enabled each of us to feel at the end of the day that we had achieved something great for ourselves! I can heartily recommend any day out with Russell, he is knowledgable, enthusiastic and inspiring. Go for it - challenge yourself to something new!

We had a fantastic morning Coasteering with Cumulus at Dancing Ledge.
There were 13 of us on a stag do, and we were led by Thommo and his able assistant Lewis.
They were friendly, encouraging, supportive, and fun. The only thing I could fault was the quality of Thommo's jokes. The whole session was really well planned; starting with very easy jumps indeed and ending with ones that would have seemed pretty daunting to most of us at the beginning. No-one was pushed to do anything they weren't comfortable with, but almost all of us progressed really well. This was a great outing - all of us really enjoyed it. And the way in which we were looked after and led was brilliant. I'd recommend this to anyone.

We went coasteering last Sunday and had a great time. Although it was just two of us in the group Tommo (the instructor) was still happy to take us out. It was great fun and really well organised. Tommo is great, I felt completely safe and in good hands! In all, it was a really great day out and I would definitely do it again.
