Invest in an unforgettable experience for your little ones and watch them join our fantastic beach teachers to become expert Fistral Rangers! This is hands-on fun for all ages embedded with an educational focus.

Allow your children to explore beyond their natural boundaries and discover exciting coastal wildlife of all shapes and sizes. An early introduction to sea life could spur their passion for the environment and introduce new hobbies and interests for years to come.


We combine the skills of surfing, bodyboarding, eco coasteering, rock pooling and beach safety on the stunning shores of Newquay to create a child-friendly adventure like no other.

Fistral Rangers is an activity developed by Newquay Activity Centre and has been rolled out in schools throughout Cornwall as a ‘Beach-School’. We let the coastal weather and sea state dictate the activities, however our instructors are fully qualified in delivering super-fun sessions in all weathers to embed ocean safety, heritage and wildlife lessons.


Amongst our experienced team of ISA instructors is beach expert Grant Woodhouse. Through games and adventure, your kids will learn invaluable ocean skills and sea safety skills impossible to forget!

Simply drop your children off in wetsuits and footwear (beach shoes or trainers they don’t mind getting wet if they have some). If not, we can supply all equipment. If booking a full day session please provide your children with packed lunches.


Fistral Rangers Private Sessions are also available which include the same outdoor activities for kids. However, the group will cover more activities and get close-quarter tuition and advice from our team. Contact us for availability.
