We’ll get your school group involved in a variety of exciting ocean-based activities including surfing, bodyboarding, eco coasteering, rock pooling and beach safety on the stunning shores of Newquay. We allow the ocean and weather conditions to dictate the best activities for the day so that you never miss out on any of the fun.

If the tide is low we’ll find some incredible marine life in the rock pools. If the wind is up we’ll catch some epic waves on our surfboards. If the tide is rising, we’ll grab the bodyboards and introduce the kids to some full throttle speed. You get the idea!


Invest in an unforgettable experience for your pupils 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.


Our school adventure activities can be geared to feature current curriculum topics and learning goals. From science, maths, English language and literature, to personal development, social skills, self-confidence, motivational skills and physical development. Speak to our team about how we can arrange outdoor learning for your school group upon booking.

Each child needs to bring a completed medical declaration and consent form. Please note: those without will be unable to attend.


Our fantastic Coasteer Leader, Grant Woodhouse and his team of ISA and beach lifeguard qualified instructors will teach your pupils environmental skills they’ll never forget. Our Fistral Rangers activities are all about practical learning and exploring our coastlines up close. With us, students are helpfully encouraged to push their boundaries whilst staying safe in a supportive environment.
