Real lifeguarding and surf rescue skills taught using paddle boards, rescue tubes and lifeguarding equipment
Morning session of Lifeguard Training
Afternoon coasteer adventure which will see you work as a team to solve a rescue scenario
A full day activity with our experienced, qualified instructor team
Our Lifeguard Trials were born out of a request from the RAF looking to provide their servicemen and women with a comprehensive course in watersports skills and beach safety activities that are rewarding and motivating.
Now, with an irresistible balance of action packed, adrenaline-filled beach activities and invaluable life skills, the Lifeguard Trials ticks all the boxes for a unique group adventure!
How do Lifeguard Trials work?
The Lifeguard Trials are neatly divided into two fun sessions with a break for lunch.
The morning session
On arrival at the Newquay Activity Centre our team of friendly lifeguard qualified instructors will lead you down to Fistral beach where you’ll learn to perform some fundamental lifesaving skills that are part of the Internationally recognised beach lifeguard training course (SLSGB). The session will be pitched at a suitable level to suit the dynamic of your group.
- A board rescue
- A tube rescue
- Rescuing an unconscious casualty
- Casualty lifts and carries
- Dealing with a 1st response casualty
- Identifying rip currents & tackling waves
- Basic first aid skills
The afternoon session
Depending on the tide, your preference of adrenaline levels and your area of interest, we’ll find the perfect coasteer for you. We have the North Coast Challenge and Adventure Gulley for the thrill seekers, the Heritage Coasteer for the cultured adrenaline junkies and the Eco Coasteer for environmentally minded to name but a few. Imagine clambering through old smugglers’ caves, climbing rocks & traversing cliffs, watching incredible marine life in their natural habitat, negotiating natural rapids and whirlpools, before attempting adrenaline fuelled sea cliff jumps!
During your coasteer we’ll also stage a rescue scenario so as to give groups the opportunity to practice what they learned in the morning’s session. With the SUP moored just off the coast, teams will then devise a rescue & evacuation plan for our staged casualty.
Our experienced instructors will be there for your safety, encouragement, and as a fountain of knowledge during the lifesaving, coasteering, stand up paddle boarding. Being in the water is second nature to them and you’ll definitely feel this energy and passion as they go the extra mile to give you a truly memorable experience.
Our reviews on Trip Advisor rank Newquay Activity Centre as number one for Cornwall activities and we’re proud double gold winners of the Cornish Tourism awards.
