Coasteering is the evolution of canyoning at sea! In 2018 we brought Coasteering in Italy, precisely in Portofino. This activity is widespread in the UK’s, but almost inexistent in the Mediterranean. It’s a super fun sport to do, but it is also the best way to discover the coast and it beauties from very close.
Coasteering is exciting and adrenaline-packed. It allows you to get to know up close the teeming life on the coast and explore it so closely that you will seem like part of it.
It’s like a trekking over marine rocks that allows you to explore the tide area in the best possible way. It consists in performing “crossings” along the coast, by walking, diving, swimming, climbing horizontally, playing in the riptide, exploring recesses and grottoes. The usage of ropes or harnesses it is not expected because the contact with water is always very close, without ever reaching any great height.
To practice Coasteering it is necessary to know ho to swim, be in good physical and psychological shape and be used to doing outdoors activities. Outdoor Portofino’s guides have obtained the title as “Coasteering Guides”: enjoy the experience with us in total safety!

It is suggested to use a full length wetsuit (1 / 1.5 mm) even in summer: it guarantees protection and assures an ideal body temperature.
