A truly memorable family experience. Four kids and four adults out for some adventure and boy did we get it. Nothing better than a bit of rock climbing/clambering along the South Devon coastline and then hurling yourself into the sea in a massive swell when it is a cool 9 degrees in April. A real adrenaline rush for all of us. Ziggy and Dom were brilliant guides - they know their stuff and they are consummate professionals and all the kit is provided for you apart from old trainers. They instruct on where to jump and how to get yourself out of the water whilst watching over your shoulder for large incoming waves. We even had hot chocolate and Easter eggs half way round. So desperate to do it again. All of our group lives it, even the ones that were a bit worried about taking part. Would throughly recommend the experience.

Fantastic experience coasteering this morning with Ziggy and Dom. We were a party of eight, 4 adults and 4 kids (aged 12-14). Some of us were worried about how cold it would be but it was so exhilarating, worrying about the cold was soon forgotten. We were pushed out of our comfort zones - getting to grips with extreme bouldering, leaping into the sea from cliff ledges and climbing back onto dry land while watching out for the waves. Ziggy and Dom looked after us really well, they focused on our safety, encouraged us, took great photos and provided a few little welcome treats too. Would definitely do this again and that's coming from someone who wondered how she'd been talked into it in the first place!

A great combination of adventure, scenery and a bit of education. Jumps into the sea, climbing horizontally/contouring around the rocks, scrambling and swimming to the next mark. A must if you're staying in the area

I have been twice now coasteering with Ziggy and what a memorable adventure it has been! The coastline around Maidencombe is unique and this is the best way to explore it! Ziggy knows this coastline very well and will keep you informed, entertained and interested with this group activity that combines great free climbing, a variety of cliff jumps, swimming, caves and other features to explore along the way, (we also had a visit from a seal that swam near to us) whilst also including some of the history that has shaped the coastline it to how it is today. Rock Solid is led by Ziggy, he is a great leader, who makes sure everyone is well equipped (everything is provided for except a pair of old trainers), involved and will challenge the group members with jumps and climbing at a level that each person is happy with, whilst having fun, considering safety and takin some great photos of the group and individuals to remember the experience. A great trip, a good workout, and very memorable place to explore. Maidencombe has some very scenic walks, a nice beach and a good pub right next to where you get changed so you can enjoy a well earned pint after the trip. Highly recommend this trip all round! Look forward to my next coasteering trip with Rock Solid! Maybe I’ll see you on it!

Ziggy did an absolutely excellent job of leading the coasteering experience to ensure everyone's enjoyment and confidence, with just the right amount of envelope pushing. This section of coast is stunning in all weathers (snow for us), and is well-suited to give options to fit different ability and fearlessness levels. Instruction and encouragement levels were great, and everyone had well-placed confidence in Ziggy's knowledge and advice. Everything from kit to local pirate knowledge to on-rock hot drinks to high jumps to local pub to dinner recommendation was excellent. As a local, I'm very much looking forward to insisting that all of my visitors descending on the West Country give me an excuse for another round at Rock Solid Coasteering -- very possibly the most fun I've had in this part of the world.
