This Cornwall coasteering adventure will certainly blast the
cobwebs away, as you navigate the coastline at Whitsand Bay for
three action-packed hours! Armed with nothing more than a 5mm
wetsuit, a helmet, a buoyancy aid - and a qualified coasteer guide
and beach lifeguard - you will splash, scramble, swim and jump your
way along this beautiful stretch of coastline. You start with a
shallow water entry and from there, you swim and climb along the
route, checking out the gullies, caves and rock formations along
Whitsand Bay and the Cornish coastline is one of the UK's most beautiful locations, making it the perfect place to experience coasteering. If you are lucky, you may get a glimpse of some of Cornwall's resident seals and dolphins, or even (totally harmless) basking sharks in the right season! There are plenty of big jumps and exciting obstacles to keep you on your toes throughout your coasteering experience, and it is an ideal group activity or Family day out!Once you have been kitted out with your protective and safety gear at the centre, you will head for the shore and begin your coasteering adventure with a shallow water entry. Your guide will then lead you along the challenging – but fun – route, as you grapple with the rocks, feel the swell, and explore the fascinating topography.
You may see some dolphins and seals along the way if you are lucky - there is an abundance of wonderful wildlife along the coast. Your guide is a qualified coasteer guide and beach lifeguard, ensuring you are in the safest hands possible. The half day coasteering will last for three exhilarating hours, and you are sure to enjoy every minute.

With summer looming, grab your wet suit, your board, your best surfer dude impression and head out to the water. If you need a few tips from the best in the surfing trade, we’ve spoken to Dan at Adventure Bay Surf School in Cornwall (one of the UK’s hottest spots for catching a wave) to find out what sets his experiences apart from the rest. Here’s all you need to know…
Q: How did it all start for Adventure Bay Surf?
A good friend of mine started Adventure Bay surf school 6 years ago. I was working as a surf coach at A-Bay when he made the decision for his family to find more year-round work. It felt like a natural progression to step into his shoes and fulfil a dream of owning my own surf business. Now I just want to offer the best possible experience to people that come down to S.E. Cornwall whether that’s surf lessons, coasteering experiences or just visiting the beach.
Q: What is the best part of the surfing experiences you offer?
For me, the best part of my job is seeing the expression on people’s faces as all the hard work and determination pays off and they get their first proper wave and ride the whole way to the beach. Being surrounded by the tall cliffs of Whitsand Bay means that it is a truly majestic place to learn to surf.
Q: It must be pretty chilly in the winter months! How do you ensure customers can still have a good time when it’s cold out?
Wetsuit technology has improved so much in the last 10 years. We have partnered with Sola wetsuits to offer the best, warmest and most comfortable wetsuits we can. Besides, when you’re concentrating on your next wave the cold doesn’t seem to matter anyway.
Q: What are customers most frequently asked questions?
Probably, “Will I stand up?” or “Where do I park?” Part of the charm of Whitsand Bay is that it is off the beaten track and far from the bustling crowds of Newquay or St. Ives. Whilst we do have a small café and facilities here at the beach it does mean people have to park roadside and find their way down the cliff to the beach.
Q: Is there anything else you’d like to add? Or any funny anecdotes you could share with us?
Just that with brand new surfboards and paddle boards from Skunkworks, brand new wetsuits from Sola and an epic crew of coaches Adventure Bay is ready to make sure that everyone; old, young, couples or families has the best possible time in the sea this year whether surfing, coasteering or paddling!
Thanks Dan! Now it’s time to head to the beach, see ya there…
