Cornish Rock Tors is an adventure sports company based in Polzeath on the north coast of Cornwall. Specialising in Coasteering, Sea Kayaking, Rock Climbing and Powerboat tours, we are in the perfect location to provide world-class outdoor experiences in the most awe-inspiring surroundings, where the dramatic sea cliffs of Cornwall meet the Atlantic ocean. Set up in 2006 by two friends with a passion for extreme adventure activities, Cornish Rock Tors is now a thriving outdoor centre, employing numerous full time, seasonal and freelance staff from the local area.We offer tailor made adventure packages for complete beginners all the way through to seasoned adrenaline junkies, covering half day trips to multiple day courses in Rock Climbing, Coasteering and Sea Kayaking. The north Cornish coastline between Newquay, Padstow and Bude is our playground for adventure, with stunning venues for Coasteering and Sea Kayaking and plentiful wildlife to watch on one of our Powerboat tours. For Rock Climbing we have venues all over the south west; from the sea cliffs between Lands End, Sennen and St Ives, to the Lizard, Bodmin moor and Dartmoor.We cater for individuals, family groups, school and youth groups, stag and hen parties and corporate teams, and we also provide activity gift vouchers as the perfect adventure present. We are based on Polzeath beach, where you will find our giant stripy blue gazebo on the sand between the Lifeguard hut and the Wavehunters Surf School which is on the right hand side of the beach as you look out to sea. Please come over for a chat and see what adventures we can organise for you whilst you’re here on holiday in North Cornwall.

Really friendly, helpful and professional, really accessible and informative in all e-mailing and arranging of the session, brilliant guides, felt completely safe yet also challenged. Huge amount of knowledge about the surrounding area and coastline, was an absolutely brilliant morning and would 100% recommend. Not to be missed.

From the first phone call to the end of a great kayaking trip nothing was too much trouble for Ben. Due to an unfavourable weather forecast Ben phoned to let me know that the Roseland Peninsula kayaking trip that we had booked would not be possible but offered to change it to Port Gaverne on the north coast. He kept... More

Had a fantastic day out coasteering with Cornish Rock Tors. The setting is beautiful especially on a sunny day. We didn't seem to go far from where we took off but there was so much to explore and plenty of challenging jumps. The instructors were really helpful, encouraging and had a great knowledge of the local area. I'd definitely recommend... More

Having traveled from America, this was the first time I had heard of, or done Coasteering. It far exceeded any expectations I had when I signed up. Ben and his team were engaging, thoughtful and extremely knowledgable. Whether we were exploring the ecosystems of the caves or safely testing our boundaries leaping off rock formations, the instructors allowed us to... More

We had a fantastic few hours exploring the Port Gaverne coast and caves, followed by loads of fun jumping off the rocks into the sea. We had our 10 and 13 year olds with us and the instructors were brilliant with them both, providing encouragement to the 10 year old and giving her a tow when she got a bit... More

WOW! Went coasteering just outside of the sleepy picturesque bay of Port Gaverne. The guys taking the tour, Scott and Hugo where great, funny approachable and easy to talk to. But also very knowledgable and genuinely made everyone feel safe and respectful of people's limits.

Tried Coasteering for the first time with my 14-year-old. It was amazing! Probably not for the faint hearted, but such a brilliant way to connect with the landscape. Guides were fabulous and I felt very safe at all times. Can't wait to go back!

A group of us (7) booked up to go on an intermediate Coasteering course with Cornish Rock Tors, with no idea of what we were really letting ourselves in for (other than getting wet!). All I can say is it exceeded my expectations. It was a good workout, interesting, and most importantly great fun! Hugo and Toby were our leaders... More
