About Us

The Perfect location for Coasteering in Newquay

Newquay Activity Centre is ideally situated to access some of Cornwall’s best coasteering.

It’s near the gateway to the Gazzle peninsula, which is where the majority of our coasteering adventures begin. The peninsula offers some of the most beautiful yet ecologically diverse and historically fascinating coasteering routes in Europe. You’ll explore the Tea Caverns cave and smugglers coves, come face to face with our resident seal colony and leap from stunning rock formations into picture-perfect, turquoise blue plunge pools.

Unlike other watersports, coasteering is less dependent on weather conditions, and so we go ahead and operate – come rain, wind or shine. For this reason, and the wide variety of coasteers that we offer, we only postpone 2 – 3 sessions a year due to bad weather.

Our adventure centre is equipped with heated changing rooms, lockers and storage for your belongings, hot outdoor showers and male & female toilets.  We are just a short stroll from Newquay’s famous surfing beaches (Fistral, Towan, Tolcarne & Great Western) and the town centre with its abundance of great restaurants, bars and surf shops.

Our glowing credentials

Newquay Activity Centre have been delivering coasteering in Cornwall for over 20 years, and we’re proud to be the longest running provider of coasteers in Newquay. We’re proud of our number 1 ranking on trip advisor and we are two time winners of the Cornwall Tourism Awards and gold winners of the South West Tourism Awards.

We are proud to have been recognised and sponsored by Rip Curl; they are a leader in watersport equipment, apparel and wetsuits, and have recognised Newquay Activity Centre as a centre of excellence in Cornwall.

We also provide AT for our military services, and have regular visits from the Army, Navy and RAF and are proud to be a recognised centre for Help For Heroes.  This means we regularly organise military adventure training packages that meet their high standards. Their core values of teamwork, developing leadership and other personal qualities is necessary to withstand the rigours of operational service.


A good coasteer is only as good as the route, your instructor and your gear. We pride ourselves on exceeding expectations in all these areas.


You’ll be suited up in a top of the range, warm, comfortable and flexible wetsuit. Being toasty warm and having the freedom to move in the water ensures you’ll enjoy the coasteer as much as possible.


We are as serious about safety as we are passionate about coasteering. Each person is fitted with a ‘Nookie’ helmet. Nookie are the market leaders in coasteering equipment. Their helmets are comfortable, adjustable and offer unrivalled protection.

Buoyancy Aid

Above your wetsuit but below your rash vest, you’ll be wearing a YAK buoyancy aid. These lightweight flotation aids are ergonomically designed to offer maximum buoyancy and comfort whilst not impeding your coasteering experience.


We have a large range of resilient sports trainers available to rent. So instead of you worrying about ruining your own shoes, you can concentrate on enjoying the wild ocean adventure.
