Coasteering has seen a massive boom in popularity in the last five years with the keen interest of people pursuing a more adventurous experience, and is now one on the most favoured adrenalin pursuits in the UK.
Coasteering in brief encompasses the navigation of the rocky coastlines getting from point A to point B by any means possible. Groups will be lead by professional and highly experienced guides through deep cavernous and dark caves, swim around and under awe inspiring cliffs, get twisted and thrown around in natural whirl pools and experience the unforgettable feeling of leaping from breathtaking cliff tops into the deep sea below. Coasteering also opens your eyes to the incredible and unique wildlife that exists in this fragile and geologically sensitive area.

The local wildlife will offer a few surprises: you’ll see plenty of sea and birdlife,
and may even catch up with dolphins or seals - or even spot a basking shark!
Our Coasteering mission will take you around cliffs, smugglers caves and some of Newquay’s
more secretive beaches. You’re guaranteed a real buzz as you traverse around narrow ledges
and, if you want a real rush, leap from the cliffs into the sea glistening far below.
Your Coasteering mission starts and ends at our centre, 100 yards from Fistral beach.
There will be at least two instructors with you throughout the experience, showing you
the best spots and ensuring that you are enjoying yourself in a safe environment!
Sessions last between two and three hours and you’ll be fully equipped with a wetsuit,
buoyancy aid, helmet and wetsuit boots.

'The biggest rush I've had since biking down a mountain in the Alps.
We were still talking and buzzing about it the day afterwards.
A few cuts and bruises, but amazing fun'.

'Absolutely spot on both the surfing and coasteering was brilliant
the crew was really friendly. Rob and Aidan helped me to set this up gave
me a great deal. Many thanks and see you again.'
Second lieutenant Charlie Jones, Number 2 Company. 1st Battalion Irish Guards
"I took my platoon of 25 men coasteering for adventurous training, with none
of us having done it before. It was absolutely awesome and all the boys loved it.
The jumps were high enough to challenge the men, some had to take a bit of
time before making the final plunge.
Excellent fun and a great break from military exercises and guards.
The instructors were brilliant and made the day the success it was"
