Real lifeguarding and surf rescue lessons perfect for groups
Three epic activities across a full day of fun and laughter
Knowledgeable instructors experienced with stag and hen parties
All equipment provided
A full day of activities that include coasteering, super stand-up paddleboarding, lifeguard skills and epic scenario challenges. It’s time to give us your best Baywatch impression as we put you and your stag or hen party through its paces as Newquay’s newest lifeguard recruits! Our Lifeguard Trials are guaranteed to get a bit of friendly competition brewing in your group!
HOW DO LIFEGUARD TRIALS WORK?
Our Lifeguard Trials are neatly divided into two fun sessions consisting of three overall activities with a halfway break for lunch.
THE MORNING SESSION
On arrival at the Newquay Activity Centre, our team of friendly lifeguard-qualified instructors will lead your stag or hen group down to Fistral beach where you’ll learn to perform some fundamental lifesaving skills. These skills are an existing part of the internationally recognised beach lifeguard training course SLSGB - so you’re getting the best of the best! The session will be pitched to incorporate fun and laughter whilst learning some serious lifesaving skills.
After some fun warm up games, you will set out to learn the following:
THE AFTERNOON SESSION
Depending on the tide and your stag or hen parties preference, we’ll work with you to find the perfect afternoon session full of coasteering and super SUP fun. We have the North Coast Challenge and Adventure Gulley for the thrill seekers, the Heritage Coasteer for the cultured adrenaline junkies and the Low Tide Coasteer for the environmentally minded.
Imagine clambering through old smugglers’ caves, climbing up rocks & traversing cliffs. Watching incredible marine life in its natural habitat, negotiating natural rapids and enjoying whirlpools before attempting adrenaline-fuelled sea cliff jumps; that’s exactly what coasteering is all about!
Whilst enjoying the fun of our epic coasteering routes, you will safely-yet-unexpectedly be thrown into a mock rescue scenario! Once your instructor gives the call, you will have to think fast and cast your mind back to the mornings lesson to devise a rescue plan for your staged casualty. (We’re not saying that your stag or hen should be the staged casualty, but you’d probably be letting them down if they weren’t humiliated a little bit!) Think on your feet and assess the situation to prove you’ve got what it takes to overcome the challenges facing you and your crew.
SUPERSIZED FUN ON OUR SUPER SUP!
As well as counting on each other, you will also be able to call in the aid of our nearby super SUP to help get your casualty to safety. Once free of the crags and cliffs, and with a successful rescue under your belt, you will have the chance to explore the coast using your new rescue craft.
Learn how to paddle effectively and how to work as a team to navigate this giant stand up paddle board around the dramatic coastline of Newquay. Use this super sized floating platform of fun as a base to run, jump, splash and paddle your way through the crystal-clear waters before returning back to base.

We pride ourselves on inclusion and adapt our sessions to suit all ages and abilities. We’re not happy unless you’re happy, so book your stag or hen do today for an experience that no-one will forget!
WHAT HAPPENS IF THERE IS EXTREME WEATHER?
We are super fortunate to operate many of our activities in the shelter of Towan beach. We choose the tide and weather times that deliver the very best conditions for stag and hen do’s. However, we are at the mercy of Mother Nature and sometimes she may have different plans for us. We always check the forecasted conditions but if the wind or swell picks up unexpectedly, we may need to reduce or remove the time spent on our super sup to avoid dangerous situations. If this happens we will always allow extra time to be spent on the coasteering and lifeguarding elements of the session.
Over 95% of our tours go ahead unaffected by the weather but, in the unlikely event that this does happen, we have excellent back-up options for you to choose from. If we need to amend your stag or hen do activity due to adverse weather, we will let you know in advance. (No need to call us). We appreciate your understanding.
