Booked this trip for a group of 5 people aged between 20 to 26.
Everyone had a great time and the trip catered for all levels of confidence!
The guides were awesome at giving us advice and teaching us techniques to keep ourselves safe as well as making it adventurous and fun.
Everyone came away with a smile and a good story to tell.
Overall GREAT value for money!

All gear required is provided by the company for no extra costs!

Amazing experience jetski coasteering with the team at Vertical descents. Clambering around the Pentire headland at Newquay, jumping into pools and swimming through caves with the added thrill of being dragged on a board off the back of a high powered jetski through the swell and surf. This is an adventure every person should experience on a trip to Cornwall. It will complete or even make your trip away one you will never forget. The guys are experienced and professional but fun with it. A great day out. Go find them down at Newquay harbour. Don't miss out.

me 52 yrs old and my son 17 yrs old had a brilliant morning with the group on the 30th August. Turned up at the meeting point and Al and Dunc were waiting for us, quick introduction, very thorough safety brief, forms filled in and we were ready to get changed.
The sea was quite lively but Al and Dunc really took time to encourage the kids and those adults that were a little anxious and before long we were all jumping in being washed around by the big swell. By the end of the session we were all really tired but thoroughly exhilarated. It was brilliant to see everyone enjoying themselves so much. Thanks guys it was brilliant. Chris and Sam Gaunt

Booked this for myself (41) and my two teenagers (12 & 15). We had a great time with two very good guides. (Scott & Al). A good mix of jumps, swimming, exploring caves and climbing. We had a small group of just 5 people so very little waiting around. Scott & Al were very knowledgable about the area and gave us lots of options throughout. We all had a really good time and would definitely recommend this to others.

Despite being a bit nervous we did this to please our 17 year old son and we are so pleased. It wasn't just climbing cliffs and jumping off, we had great fun climbing through caves and also swimming through a mini-sump. My 13 year old daughter was particularly nervous but our guide Al was really patient with her and eventually managed to encourage her to do two decent height jumps which she was so proud of. Quite challenging if you have a fear of heights but a real sense of achievement when you do it. They cater for different fear levels within the group, my son was allowed to do a much higher jump. Definitely do this, we voted it the best day of our holiday.
