Why do people go Coasteering? Some are looking for an ‘adrenalin kick’ from the fear and excitement it can induce, while others simply enjoy experiencing the pleasure of it. Here’s a rundown of some of the common emotions experienced on a Celtic Quest Coasteering adventure.
– describes the broad class of mental states that humans and other animals experience as positive, enjoyable, or worth seeking. It includes more specific mental states such as happiness, entertainment, enjoyment, ecstasy, and euphoria. In psychology, the pleasure principle describes pleasure as a positive feedback mechanism, motivating the organism to recreate in the future the situation which it has just found pleasurable.

You may have no idea what they are or maybe you do but, you’re excited none the less.
Is it? Isn’t it? It IS a Coasteering Activity Voucher…woooohooooo!
Seriously though, excitement and the pleasure of the activity is what makes our clients return year after year.
– is an unpleasant state of inner turmoil. It is the subjectively unpleasant feelings of dread over something unlikely to happen, such as the feeling of imminent death. Anxiety is not the same as fear, which is felt about something realistically intimidating or dangerous and is an appropriate response to a perceived threat; anxiety is a feeling of fear, worry, and uneasiness, usually generalized and unfocused as an overreaction to a situation that is only subjectively seen as menacing.

Basically, there’s a lot of irrational worrying over nothing, though it does provide some great excuses as to why a participant ‘can’t’ jump or take a spin in a water feature. Again, not all negative as this anxiety is swiftly transformed into pleasure after breaking through these invisible barriers.
– is an emotion induced by a perceived threat which causes entities to quickly pull far away from it and usually hide. It is a basic survival mechanism occurring in response to a specific stimulus, such as pain or the threat of danger. In short, fear is the ability to recognize danger leading to an urge to confront it or flee from it (fight-or-flight response).

– is an inwardly directed emotion that refers to a satisfied sense of attachment toward one’s own or another’s choices and actions, or toward a whole group of people, and is a product of praise, independent self-reflection, or a fulfilled feeling of belonging. [wiki-link]
– Confidence is generally described as a state of being certain either that a hypothesis or prediction is correct or that a chosen course of action is the best or most effective. Self-confidence is having confidence in oneself. [wiki-link]
Coasteering is a great confidence building activity. We encourage nervous and inexperienced visitors to join our adventures. Throughout the session clients self-confidence increases, for most this culminates in having the confidence to step from the 10 metre platform into the Blue Lagoon, despite before the session, having been adamant they wouldn’t jump off anything.
– One party (trustor) is willing to rely on the actions of another party (trustee); the situation is directed to the future. In addition, the trustor abandons control over the actions performed by the trustee. As a consequence, the trustor is uncertain about the outcome of the other’s actions; he can only develop and evaluate expectations. The uncertainty involves the risk of failure or harm to the trustor if the trustee will not behave as desired. [wiki-link]
– is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. [wiki-link]

– is the ability and willingness to confront fear, pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation. Physical courage is courage in the face of physical pain, hardship, death, or threat of death. [wiki-link]
– is variously seen as the act or posture of lowering one self in relation to others, or conversely, having a clear perspective, and therefore respect, for one’s place in context. [wiki-link]
