Industry Leading coasteer instructors
The sheltered Gazzle coastline hosts an abundance of natural wildlife; we’ve found 80 different species along our coasteering routes! Newquay Activity Centre has teamed up with the Cornwall Wildlife Trust to offer you an ecology focussed coasteering adventure at low tide. We are #1 on Trip Advisor and offer the best coasteering experiences in Newquay!
WHAT IS A LOW TIDE COASTEER?
Our unique Low Tide Coasteer combines exhilarating adventure with an environmental focus. The Gazzle is a special stretch of Cornish coastline that hosts an abundance of marine species. As the tide recedes, the mystical deep reveals a completely new and adventurous route. You’ll climb through smugglers caves now home to friendly grey seals, traverse the rocky outcrops and glide through natural rapids into new sections of the route. Low Tide Coasteering is the perfect way to get up close and personal with the flora and fauna along our coastlines.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU NEED?
From our state of the art centre, we will provide you with wetsuits, buoyancy aids and helmets. Your instructor will also take a collection of bin bags so you can perform your very own mini beach clean, helping us sustainably manage our coastline for the future. Once kitted out in our heated changing rooms, you will be given a full safety briefing and comprehensive instruction about correct coasteering techniques. You will cover how to enter and exit the water, traverse the cliff lines and wild swim safely between sections, before heading down to Towan Head’s craggy rocks.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Our low tide coasteers are an exploration of the craggy intertidal zones along the shoreline, so you will need to bring a pair of lace-up shoes with hard soles. Old trainers that fit you well will be perfect. If you don't have a pair, we can provide trainers for a small hire charge. Remember to bring some swimwear for under you wetsuit and a towel for afterwards! You’ll want to make the most of our hot outdoor showers back at base!
