This is a must do activity if you like to try something different. The two instructors Mark and Tom (?) were lovely,friendly and very knowledgeable guys and always put safety first so if you are feeling apprehensive don't worry about your safety. My family wanted to do this activity but I was very worried about being in the sea way out of my depth as I have a true fear of deep water. Deciding that I had to try or else miss out on an adventure, I put on the wetsuit, helmet and buoyancy jacket and off I went along the rocks. Then it was time to get into the water and swim. I managed to swim a few metres ok but then I found it too exhausting swimming against the tide so I decided it wasn't for me and asked to be pulled out as I had started to panic and couldn't breath (which is not what you should do I might add! So its all totally my fault!). Safely back on the rocks, I decided to stay there whilst the rest of the group carried on. Never once did the instructors make me do anything I didn't want to do and they were both very supportive and understanding. I only had to sit and admire the view for a short time before the group came back from the swim in the caves (which my family told me was very dark and narrow at one point) and then I got to watch the cliff jumps into the sea. My youngest son fulfilled one of his wishes to jump off a high rock into the sea so I was happy to witness this making the whole adventure worthwhile.
It is best to book directly with Mad Ferret via their website as we had booked via a shop in Newquay and somewhere there was miscommunication. We wanted to pay extra and go alone as a family because of my fear of deep water, but when we turned up we were told that we would be joined by another family of four. The other family were great and it probably worked out better this way as their son probably helped to encourage my youngest to try the high jumps.
Overall, this is a highly recommend adventure. Go with Mad Ferret and all will be fine!
