Excellent afternoon negotiating the Cornish coastline. Lewis and Ellie were great instructors, making our adventure safe and exceptionally enjoyable. Back next week! Organisation and quality first class, well worth every penny! Thank you

Had a fantastic time Coasteering, brilliant activity in a cloudy and rainy Cornwall, as you get wet anyway. Instructors were friendly and helpful. Went with 2 15 old girls, one of whom had never done anything like this before and totally loved it. Top tip, bring a flask of hot chocolate for afterwards, you will be very tired and the... More

Booked surfing lessons for two teenage boys who hadn't surfed before. Booked online a week before and this was a really simple process which was followed up by a reminder text from them. The boys were met at the beach by instructor Dan who was really friendly and put them at ease. Wetsuits and boards were provided and they had... More

Outdoor A, Manager at Outdoor Adventure Residential Activity Centre, responded to this review

Dear David I am sorry that you were left disappointed. Our booking system automatically generates an email on the morning of the event to remind our customers, however I can see why this would then be frustrating to have a cancellation call 10 mins later. We will look into this further. Due to the nature of the activity and changing... More

Great experience climbing and swimming in a lovely cove. Instructors were great.. Friendly, supportive and informative. Bit of a mix up of location though as it did not indicate that we had to meet at a different location than the centre on the website. Other than that thought the website was good and was easy to book. Will definitely use... More

Great morning out, coasteering with outdoor adventures. Challenging waves and weather..my two teenagers had great fun jumping, climbing and being tumbled by the waves. A great session, ideal for teens. Great instructors to help and provide confidence.

From the friendly telephone manner upon booking to the moment we parted ways after three little boys experienced surfing for the first time, we were treated like the most important customers ever.
