“Great Morning Coasteering”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

We booked in a 3 hour coasteering session for the morning of the 15th September. There were 5 of us doing the experience and we had 2 instructors - Sam and Charlie. Both were really friendly, encouraging and laid back! All of us enjoyed the experience (although i did chicken out of the highest jump!!). Would definatley book more experiences through Vertical Descents.

“Team building adventures”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

I took my management team for a couple of days of activities for both reward & team building. It was clear from the first contact we had with Vertical Descents that these were the guys to use for such activities. At the booking stage, nothing was to much trouble and it was clear that this would be a well run couple of days. We had a mixed group of age and varying levels of fitness but Sam & his team ensured everybody was well looked after and made to feel safe but equally challenged. The tuition from the team was clear and very helpful for surfing and the raft building was a fantastic laugh. The highlight was coasteering, safety first, excellent kit and great fun. Swimming with a seal in the surf, jumping off some cliffs, scrambling through a cave, it was a fantastic adventure - we will back again. The team all loved it - the feedback has been superb. People left feeling that they had fun but also that they achieved something through the activities. A great couple of days - thanks so much. Richard & the Hays team.

“daughters 16th birthday wish!!”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

What can i say, fab customer service, from the first enquiry email through to the final payment on the day. These guys were fab, my daughter and her dad went and the guys were friendly and helpful the whole time. Your not made to feel like you have to do it, my daughter struggled with a couple of jumps, but they were brilliant, took her back to the jump she had managed to do and built her confidence up that way ..she then managed the 25ft jump at the end. I was able to follow the group at every point to take photos to remember her awesome adventure. When we went they had a young guy on work experience, he had only been with them a couple of days... we would not have known that had he not told us. Your safety and others around them is paramount to these guys... A BRILLIANT AND SAFE TIME...WELL DONE TO ALL IAT VERTICAL DESCENTS NEWQUAY :) we will be back to have more adventures

“Excellent Adventure”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

I took a group of 11 female cadets to Vertical Descents fpr an afternoon of coasteering. Sam and his crew were excellent. Relaxed, confident and above all - safe! The kit they gave us was all in good nick, the pre trip briefing clear, and the coasteering itself spot on. The girls throughly enjoyed the experience and "pushed their personal boundaries". Great job Sam - thanks for a memorable trip!

“Weekend Break with Verticle Descents”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

My wife and I went down to Newquay for the weekend, we enrolled to do the Coasteering with Vertical Descents for the morning on the 7th July 2012, Bab's was soon to learn she was the only girl amongst 9 men and was feeling a bit nervous, we were introduced to the group leader "Sam" and his team of experts who soon got us all in to the bustling sea, Bab’s nerves turned in to a happy smiley face almost immediately when realising what great fun it was going to be, we entered caves, jumped off cliffs and were pushed around by the swell. If you are able I highly recommend you do "Vertical Descents Coasteering" , a special big thanks to Sam for retrieving our lost camera.
