WITH A TWIST...
Coasteering at Adrenalin Quarry is unique. We’ve got The Blob... Your friend sits on the end of a 12x3m inflatable tube. You climb up the floating tower and jump onto the tube. Your friend shoots up into air, down in water. You’re next. It’s a massive hit here for 2013.
We’re the 1st Cornwall coasteering venue where children aged 10+ are welcome. Go wild swimming, traverse rockfaces, climb sheer cliffs and jump into the lake. We’re AALA registered (L9427/R1954), there’s a safety boat on the water and our instructors guide you all the way

Cornwall is currently enjoying a reputation as the UK’s hottest destination for coasteering. From Newquay and Padstow on the north coast to Penzance and Looe on the south, coasteering has become a major attraction for tourists seeking adrenalin sports adventure.
Why is coasteering in Cornwall so popular? With its dramatic surroundings, (relatively) warm water and numerous outdoor adventure centres and parks, a surfing and watersports culture has blossomed in recent years – attracting some of the UKs top adrenalin sports instructors and practitioners to settle here permanently – and share their wisdom and enthusiasm with tourist and local alike.
