East Coast Adventures is an outdoor adventure company operating across East Anglia with a team of fully qualified outdoor instructors. 

Whether you're booking for a party or social occasion, a corporate team building event, or are looking to have an adventure for your school, we can help.

Bringing the adventure to you, or hosting you at our site in Woodbridge, Suffolk.



We started our outdoor business in early 2021, but our journey goes back far longer than that.

Ricky set up East Coast Adventures in the wake of the pandemic to fulfil a life-long passion for the outdoors combined with varied skills acquired from working as a business consultant to a children's TV presenter with an ed-tech company in Beijing. Our instructors have a passion for the outdoors, and plenty of experience in it.

We have grown to offer outdoor events for; private parties for both adults and children, hen parties and stag dos, corporate team-building events for both local and publicly listed companies and educational outdoor activity days for schools and universities. We also run outdoor activity workshops for paddleboarding, archery/axe throwing, and bushcraft as well as East Coast Adventure Days for young adventurers.
