Our unique Low Tide Coasteering 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.


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.


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!

We are the longest running Newquay Coasteering centre. We launched our first coasteer in 1999, and pioneered a number of the routes along Newquay’s coastime, even naming Adventure Gully.

We have since diversified to offer unique coasteering hybrids such as Super SUP Coasteering, Kayak coasteering, Cornish Castaway, and Heritage coasteering. With over 200,000 guests passing through the centre, more than any other coasteer company in the UK, our experience has been gained organically and reflects in our endless positive reviews.

We have shaped coasteering in the UK through the development of coasteer guide training courses, training many of the coasteer guides in the local and national industry through our 3 months instructor course. We are registered members of the National Coasteering Charter and our coasteer leads are signed off to work by John Paul Eatock, the National Coasteering Charter Regional Rept. John is widely recognised as the foremost coasteer expert in the country. 

Ongoing in house training maintains the highest standards of safety and knowledge sharing to ensure that we maintain our excellent safety record.


We take huge pride in providing the best coateering and offering an amazing experience for our guests.  Don’t just take our word for it though, our reviews back this up!  We have over 3000 5 star Tripadvisor reviews and some amazing Google reviews…
