Epic double activity around Newquay’s wild coast
Up close and personal exploration of local flora and fauna
Suitable for all abilities
Expert instructors and safety-first care
Looking for a double-strength injection of both adrenaline and coastal cruising? Our Kayak Coasteer will seriously hit the spot. Combining two of our most popular activities, it’s a souped up, high-energy version of our best bits; maximising high exploration with an equal dose of adventure.
Paddle through crystal-clear waters, scale cliffs and feel the thrill as you take the plunge – kayaking and coasteering are best enjoyed together!
How do you make two awesome activities even more, well, awesome? You put them together and see the adventure step up to a whole new level! That’s just what we’ve done in our kayak coasteer. Amazing fun with a multi-faceted series of skills, challenges and learnings.
It all begins in the comfort of our purpose-designed activity centre. Using our heated changing rooms, we’ll kit you out with a top quality wetsuit, safety helmet and buoyancy aid – and of course a kayak and paddle! We’ll spend some time on the sand running through safety information, along with basic paddling and coasteering techniques - then it’s time to get wet and wild. Woohoo!
INTRODUCING THE GAZZLE
For our Kayak Coasteer adventures, the Gazzle - an epic 2km stretch of coastline - is our aquatic playground. Rich in wildlife, heritage and amazing natural character, it’s got so much going on that you’ll be itching to jump out and explore. There’s caves to inspect, natural rapids to negotiate and wildlife aplenty - you may even be joined by one of Newquay’s friendly local seals. Brimming with local knowledge, our passionate instructors will bring the history of the area to life with stories of smugglers who once used this secluded stretch of coast for their ill-gotten gains.
PADDLE, JUMP, PADDLE, JUMP
Once you’re comfortable on your kayak and you’ve got the basic paddle techniques mastered, we’ll strike out along the Gazzle taking in the awesome scenery as we go. As well as pausing at points of interest, we’ll delve into caves and coves and whip up the laughter with games and challenges.
Your kayak will give you access to parts of the coast that you just wouldn’t be able to reach on normal coasteering. The benefit of having the kayak allows us to moor up at secret beaches and discover the beauty of the local hidden land. Get ready to feel the buzz!
Come face-to-face with the craggy crevices of Newquay’s Gazzle Headland as you follow an expert guide into an adventurous new world. Navigate the cliff line, traverse low level stretches, ride natural rapids and leap from cliff ledges into deep water plunge pools. One, two, three…jump!
This is a double bill, double adrenaline activity that is just as perfect for beginners as it is for those with previous experience in kayaking or coasteering. We let you choose the intensity and pace - giving you all the tools you need to enjoy the Cornish coast as much as possible.
