If you enjoy adventures then coasteering is for you! Our North Coast Challenge in Newquay is the ultimate thrill-seeking coasteer in Cornwall. You’ll get kitted out in a wetsuit, buoyancy aid and helmet in our on-site heated changing rooms, with storage for all your belongings before negotiating a route pioneered by shipwrecked sailors and tea plundering pirates. We are #1 on TripAdvisor and offer the best coasteering experiences in Newquay!
What is the North Coast Challenge?
Coasteering combines the skills of mountaineering and orienteering then applies them to the coastal setting. It will push your boundaries and boost your confidence in the most fun way possible!
During our adrenaline-fuelled North Coast Challenge you’ll explore the smugglers caves and craggy crevices of Newquay’s Gazzle Headland. Follow our expert guides in navigating the cliff line, wild swimming between sections, traversing low level stretches, natural rapid riding and leaping from cliff ledges into deep water plunge pools.
We have a selection of routes to choose from for challenging and exhilarating adventures. We’ll never throw you in at the deep end and there are always alternative routes to personalise the route for your ability. You can choose your own intesity. We’ve got your back and that’s a promise!
What’s more, our passionate team can teach you all about the marine life and heritage synonymous with the Cornish coastline.
What equipment do you need?
We provide warm winter wetsuits, buoyancy aids, helmets and hi-visibility rash vests from our centre. 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.
What should I bring?
Coasteering tackles a rugged coastal route 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 any, we can provide trainers for a small hire charge. Remember to bring some swimwear for under you wetsuit and a towel for afterwards!
