WITH A TWIST...
Coasteering opens around Easter every year. Check the shop for your preferred dates or call 01579 308 204. 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 flies up, then plummets down. Get ready, you’re next.
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 deserves its 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 UK’s top adrenalin sports instructors to settle here – and share their wisdom with tourist and local alike.

THE WHAT, WHERE,
WHEN & HOW OF JUMPING OFF A CLIFF
WHAT IS FRESHWATER COASTEERING?
Freshwater Coasteering at Cornwall’s Adrenalin Quarry is a no-holds-barred adventure. Explore a rugged wildlife haven, traverse sheer cliffs, swim in the lake & ‘tombstone’ safely in a series of cliff jumps that start timid but end insane.
HOW MUCH AND HOW LONG DO I GET?
£40 per person, per session, including all the kit, an experienced coasteering guide & 2-3 hours wild swimming, traversing & jumping. When you can't take any more you'll head for The Blob, which is the final part of every Adrenalin Quarry Coasteering session.
WHAT’S THE AGE LIMIT FOR COASTEERING?
Min age limit is 10. No maximum limit.
ANY OTHER RESTRICTIONS?
You must be able to swim 50m comfortably and be in general good health to take part in our coasteering experience.
DOESN’T COASTEERING INVOLVE LOADS OF HANGING AROUND AND WAITING FOR THE RIGHT WEATHER?
Not at Adrenalin Quarry's sheltered inland lakes and cliffs. We never close because of the weather so you're guaranteed a reliable adventure. Just turn up, get your gear on and you’re ready - no long treks before you start.
DO I HAVE TO DO THE HIGH JUMPS?
No. This is challenge by choice. You jump as high and as much as you feel happy with. We have a whole series of jumps that cover all abilities. There’s no pressure from us to do the big ones: the emphasis is always on fun.
I WANT STAG/HEN PARTY ACTIVITIES IN CORNWALL. IS THIS ANY GOOD?
Are you kidding? We offer The UK's Highest Supervised Jump, plus The Blob lives, breathes and devours the innocent right here in the lake. Grown men turn to jelly when they face The Widowmaker, and they bow before The Blob. It's as scary as you want us to make it and guaranteed to sort the best men from the bridesmaids.
I DO ADVANCED COASTEERING. CAN YOU CHALLENGE ME?
Definitely. Just take a look at the photos.
I WANT TO GO TOMBSTONING IN CORNWALL. IS THIS THE PLACE?
Absolutely. This is as scary as it gets. And the scenery's not bad either.
IS COASTEERING SAFE?
Safety is our top priority. You're always with experienced guides & every session is overseen by BCF/SLSGB instructors. All adrenalin sports involve some element of risk, but we go out of our way to keep this to a minimum.
Can I wear my glasses?
Wearing glasses is not recommended. We advise disposable contacts.
What about wetsuits etc?
We provide all the gear, including superwarm wetsuit and boots, buoyancy aid, harness and helmet. It’s state-of-the-art stuff but feel free to wear your own wetsuit or boots if you prefer.
What do I need to bring with me?
A towel, swim gear and refreshments (it can be thirsty work!)
How many can do it?
Max 20/Min 4 in a group. We try to hook up singles and small groups with other groups. If your group is 20+ call us.
