Big Blue staged my brother's stag based in Brecon but with a night out in Cardiff. The experience... was brilliant. As best man, I did the liaison with Dan who listened carefully to the brief and came up with an awesome schedule. Accommodation in Brecon was really superb and provisions were there on arrival so we didn't have to even think about food before rolling down to the local pub for some beers after arrival. Saturday's logistics in and back out of the city at the end of the night were flawless (we went to watch Wales vs. Barbarians). Finally, a great time canyoning on Sunday - definitely exciting enough to make us forget about early December water temperatures! We received enough kit including balaclavas/booties, etc to stop us shivering. I'd thoroughly recommend Big Blue to anyone after the time we had. A big five stars from me, the groom and his fellow stag attendees!read more

I had the tricky task of organising a stag do for 19 people but Dan and Heleen made it really easy.... We had an awesome weekend Coasteering in Gower - from the accommodation to the activities and everything in between, the Big Blue team were superb. Wouldn't hesitate to book with them again. Thanks Big Blue!read more

From the first time of speaking to Dan we had a smooth and stress free experience. He listened to... our needs and tailored the perfect experience for our trip. It really couldn’t have been better communication wise, all the info we received was accurate and clear. This made it remarkably easy to organise an epic trip for 12 friends. During the weekend everything went really smoothly and everyone was impressed with the amazing location, accommodation and generous catering arrangements. We spent 2 nights at the old school bunk house, near Rhossili (Gower), with a bbq on arrival and an afternoon Coasteering. The activity exceeded everyone’s expectations, pushing us out of our comfort zones while still assured that we were safe and in expert hands. With a ratio of 12 of us to 4 guides and good quality equipment it really felt like we were well looked after. All the guides were really friendly and filled us with confidence. Would highly recommend this company and would certainly like to use them again. Thanks for an awesome experience Big Blue crew! 🤙read more

Heleen outdoor activities in Wales

Why We Love This…

“Wales has so much outdoor fun to offer, the options are endless. I love doing a sunset hike to the summit of Pen-y-Fan with a well-deserved glass of wine at the end and spectacular views over Brecon Beacons. Wakeboarding is my new personal favourite, it’s so addictive! Rafting in Cardiff Bay is an awesome urban adrenaline boost.”
