CoasteeringWhy go Coasteering?Coasteering in CornwallVideo
The extreme sport of coasteering in Cornwall has existed in various unofficial guises for a considerable amount of time, thanks to the diverse and challenging pull of the county’s coastal landscape. This activity consists of clambering, climbing and swimming around the rugged coast and testing your nerve with high jumps into the sea from rocky ledges. Coasteering in Cornwall is an exciting and enthralling activity everyone should try at least once. 

Coasteering Background

In the 1990’s it emerged as a commercially guided recreational activity initially along the cliff coastline of Pembrokeshire in Wales. Its reach has extended not only to Cornwall, but Scotland also. Whilst the coasteering fraternity of yesteryear were happy, (or misguidedly brave enough), to jump around the county’s rocky outcrops, caves and waves in shorts and t-shirt, today’s coasteering collective tend to don wetsuit and helmet to ensure survival accompanies the thrill seeking. The BBC’s ‘Holidays Out’ programme called it ‘the best liquid refreshment you can get’ and Everest mountaineer, Chris Bonington found it, ‘immensely enjoyable’.

Coasteering Cornwall

Today coasteering is a regulated activity and operators must adhere to safety measures. Professional coasteering operators only use qualified guides and supply all the necessary equipment including wetsuit, helmet and safety vest. Top places to go coasteering in Cornwall include Newquay, Bude, St Agnes, Polzeath and St Ives. Below you will find all the information you need on coasteering in Cornwall, including details on instructional coasteering courses for all ages, workshops, lessons, schools and clubs.
