Turned up early on a cold Saturday morning not looking forward to the sea and coasteering but was soon in a wetsuit and given a safety brief. Safety never in doubt despite some real rushes over the morning. Great guys running it with Charlie keeping us all laughing and wanting to go on for longer. Many laughs and beautiful scenery... More

I had a great morning coasteering session with Vertical Descents. They are very friendly and professional guys so overall it was the perfect combination of getting thrills while being with experienced guides. I was in a group with adults and teenagers and the guides were considerate of everyone. The kit was great, perfectly fitting wetsuit, gloves etc and I stayed... More

I've just had a fantastic day coasteering with Sam and the Vertical Descents guys. I enjoyed it so much, the staff are so professional that even though it feels a bit out of your normal comfort zone at first, they soon have you relaxed and calm and having a wicked time! Even though it is only the beginning of April... More

The experience with Vertical Descents just made Cornwall twice as good of an experience! It´s been my third time now in Cornwall and I never missed out on the adventures Sam and his team have to offer. These guys personify the easy going surf lifestyle what makes Cornwall so unique. Whatever you do with vertical descents, you always have the... More

Had a 'coasteering' session with Sam and co. and having not done this activity before I was quite nervous, however the proffesional manner in which these guys lead the whole day was amazing. I would recommend vertical descents to anyone travelling to newquay and looking for adventure!!!!

Having tried Vertical Descents a few years ago and found the group size too large, I was persuaded to go again but with some friends who'd booked a private session. There were only 6 of us, all with some climbing experience. The leaders soon sussed us out and took us out for a great afternoon. This time everything was much... More

Had such a cool time coasteering with Sam and the guys at Vertical Descents. They really know what they are doing and showed us all the safety gear and best spots. We felt in good hands with these guys and they really helped me gain confidence jumping from the highest rocks. Highly recommend these guys. Cant wait for my next... More

Thanks very much to the guys at Vertical Descent and Newquay Harbour Watersports for giving us all a great time surf rafting for the stag do this weekend. They put a lot of effort in and the day was organised and safe, but exhillerating, tiring, and most of all fun! Would recommend to anyone and would love to go back... More
