Description:

If you're visiting West Cornwall, be sure to come and take a tour with us!...

If you're visiting West Cornwall, be sure to come and take a tour with us! We are the UK's most westerly coasteering centre, and are spoilt with the awesome granite cliffs of the Lands End peninsula right on our doorstep. Come with Kernow Coasteering to explore the coastline up close and personal! Coasteering is the UK's fastest growing adventure activity and combines swimming, scrambling and jumping your way along the cliff-line, whilst exploring sheer ciffs, hidden caves and arches, as well as giving you a chance to see wildlife and experience the environment first hand. Coasteering is suitable for a wide range of abilities and ages, and is suitable for families, groups, individuals, parties, stage and hen dos and just about anyone else. So long as you can swim 50m in a swimming pool and have a reasonable level of fitness, you're ready to coasteer! Please note that children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Don't miss the chance to experience Cornwall in this truly unforgettable way!

Matt was not only extremely professional, but also very relaxing to be with. The group that I was with was of mixed levels of confidence and capabilities however he made all of us feel at ease, safe and ensured that everyone got the most from the experience. It is a wonderful way to see a hidden side to the Cornish... More

I took my two teenage daughters (12 and 14) for an afternoon of coasteering and had an amazing day that we will all remember for many years. We met up with Matt at Pendeen Lighthouse and he gave us a full safety briefing. Then we took a short stroll to the water's edge and jumped in, The day was sunny... More

My girlfriend and I spent 3 hours coasteering in Pendeen and had a great time despite the choppy weather. Very exciting and extremely glad I took part.

I am not particularly an outdoorsy person, however this was brilliant fun. Matt is a fantastic guide, really supportive, helpful and hilarious. I'm not keen on heights (or submerging myself in the sea!) so it took me a little while to do some jumps but there was no pressure. My husband and the other two girls in our group did... More

We joined an existing group going out that afternoon, and found the staff very helpful and knowledgable, the kit in good condition and the scenery and coasteering itself absolutely beautiful.

A group of 12 of us went out with Matt and Lee this afternoon. After being a bit dubious of my fitness ability and fear, I was really happy that we had a route that suited all of us: there was no pressure to do any of the jumps/narrow gullies, and often at the larger jumps they would point out...

Fantastic day being a child again! Went with big sister to prove that nudging 50 is not too old for this sort of fun? Mat is a superb guide/instructor who balances absolute safety with you having a top time. We were doubly lucky in being the only 2 on the trip & the swell being at the interesting end of... More

Fantastic day out with Matt, kids (10 & 14) thought it was amazing and loved jumping from the rocks into the sea. Matt showed us, where it was safe to jump from at various heights on the rocks, so we could all jump from a height we felt comfortable with.Absolutely fantastic.

Fabulously exciting - and a great way to get a different view of the magnificent Penninis coast on St Mary's. Kinda scary too for the less adventurous but well worth pushing yourself to do this even if you number among them. I number among the scared-iest of types and I'd certainly do it again. Supervision/instruction was confidence-giving and tops!
