We love adventure travel and the smiles it puts on everyone’s faces. We get a real buzz from putting together the highlights and sharing them with you after the trip.
Photos and video are typically included in the day tours and multi-night trips only, but we can on request try and include pictures in activity only. It depends on our instructors. In Madeira our team there love a selfie so pictures are included!
How much will it cost?
All our day and multi-night packages are 100% tailor-made for you! So, we can create a Big Blue Adventure to suit specific budgets and what you would like to include for the perfect adventure. The more activities and package elements you include the more that package will cost. It also depends on your final numbers in the group, generally larger groups have a cheaper per person rate over smaller groups as there are more people to split the core package costs between. Best thing to do is request a quote – it costs you nothing to start the ball rolling and say hello, we can send a great package your way from there.
Activity only sales for coasteering vary on location and again size within the groups, you could be looking at something between €45 – €60 per person.
When you are ready to book your adventure we simply start with a 30% non-refundable deposit to confirm it all. The final balance is typically required no later than 3 weeks before your activity date for day tours or 6 weeks for multi-night packages. Most customers pay by bank transfer, but we can also accept debit and credit card transaction upon request.
We can also make some changes between the deposit and the final balance payment. Such as amending a few dropouts / attendee increases, or making some package changes within reason. For further information please do see our terms and conditions.
What to bring
To take part in coasteering all you need is:
- A pair of old spare trainers – like a gym shoe / sneaker with sturdy sole and something you don’t mind getting wet, sandy and roughed up on the rocks. Please note in Madeira our team there have canyoning shoes which we can use nicely for coasteering.
- Swimwear or spare underwear for under the wetsuit. Try and avoid boardies as anything baggy can be very uncomfortable under a wetsuit
- If you have a pair handy then old shorts to go over the wetsuits I can be useful to help us protect the wetsuit. They can get ripped up though so only if you have an old pair!
- A towel
- Water (please try and avoid throw away single use plastic!)
- Any medication you need to keep on you, such as an asthma pump of EpiPen etc
All the essential kit is included; wetuits, helmets, buoyancy aids and any climbing gear.
Are meals & drinks included?
We can include lunch or dinner after the coasteering with drinks. It all depends on what type of meal you want, how much budget you have for the meal and time. We work with some amazing places from beach side modern restaurants to very cultural old joints for an authentic Madeira BBQ and can also include a packed lunch with drinks on a beach or a quick bite on the move.
Minimum numbers are 6 people typically due to the cost to run a day tour or multi-night adventure. But please contact us if you have less than 6 and wish to explore a Big Blue Adventure for your group.

We settled on the coasteering package in the Algarve, and it turned out to be the perfect choice.
We were met by Nuno and the team, who picked all 16 of us up on time at our hotel (they even brought us pastel de natas!) Right from the start, they ensured everything we needed was sorted. The coasteering activity was awesome and the guys leading it were extremely helpful, professional and fun. The lunch that was provided was perfect for after the activities, and the restaurant setting of Benagil was fantastic! Nuno even brought us for and unexpected hike and tour around a local cove.
Big blue adventures made the whole experience easy for us, and ensured we had the best possible time during our short stay in Portugal! The team loved it, and I will definitely be booking again for next year!read more
