Survival Courses from Coastal Survival offer practical and hands-on opportunities to learn essential survival skills. We start with the basics and progress through to advanced skills. By looking at survival skills as a complete picture, we can easily break down it down into manageable tasks and teach ways of dealing with whatever life may put before us all. Mastering these skills allows for a refined confidence in the approach you can take to situations life throws at you. The Coastal Survival School was the first UK based bushcraft school to offer such courses and much of what you learn is unique and developed especially by us.
Our courses are great for beginners or the advanced survivalist seeking specialist survival skills
We regularly teach survival skills to other specialist survival and bushcraft instructors from leading training providers, something among others that has seen us gain the reputation as the leading and only specialist Coastal Survival skills provider.
Fraser Christian (Owner of Coastal Survival school) has a unique approach to tuition, one which in fact works incredibly well in the coastal situation. Frasers personal experience from living the life and working both within the fishing industry and as a chef really adds to the experience (and flavours of food).
We are also the first to teach our advanced courses to military special forces survival instructors and help design the course they now follow. Our unique and original coastal survival courses are run regularly across the UK and in South West Sweden. We can and do provide private training courses in coastal survival skills anywhere in the UK.
