Coasteering

Coasteering

star-5
Coasteering takes you into an alien environment, one minute you can be traversing across barnacle-covered ledges, and the next you find yourself diving into the sea to cross water-filled zawns. The adrenaline-filled adventure will take you from secluded beaches to smugglers’ coves and secret caves inhabited by stunning sea life. It is one of the coolest ways to explore the gorgeous Cornish coastline. Each coasteer experience runs for 2-3 hours and involves a mix of traversing along a stretch of intertidal zone, over rocks and through water, using a variety of demonstrated techniques including climbing, swimming and jumping into water. With challenging terrain and an exceptionally rugged coastline, coasteering in Newquay is both a challenge and a thrill that gives you the chance to get closer to the marine life and seascape.
