Newquay Coasteering Adventure

Taking a coasteering trip along Newquay’s coast alone is a complete no-no, even if you’re experienced at the sport. This guided expedition lets you enjoy coasteering in safety and with all equipment provided, so you can focus on the scenery, swims, and jumps. Negotiate the water’s edge, caves, and whirlpools; and take deep-water leaps and swims, all with a qualified guide. A choice of time slots gives you useful flexibility.

We had an amazing day coasteering with Victor, the company was very well equipped and helpful. All jumps were optional and victor made sure we all felt comfortable. Will definitely be doing this again next time we come.
