Adventures in Cornwall
Regular stories, news, technique tips and event listings from the team to inform and inspire your adventures on the Cornish coast.
A Short History of Port Gaverne
Cornish Rock Tors is based in Port Gaverne, a small fishing hamlet situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Heritage Coast Area. We run our activities along beautiful and unspoiled stretches of the wild Cornish coast, but our centre of operations is in an equally beautiful, historic, and interesting setting.
October Half Term Holiday Activities in Cornwall
The October Half Term Holiday is fast approaching (already? But they’ve only just gone back to school after six weeks off!), and for many people it will be their last chance to get in the water in 2019 before winter arrives in earnest.
Autumn Bird Watching in Cornwall
Autumn, and October in particular, is a busy time for travel in Cornwall. You may think that with the end of the summer holidays, most of the visitors would have headed home however it’s not the case. Many of the humans may have, but they get replaced by flocks of feathered visitors on their autumn migration.
Is Coasteering Safe?
The question “Is coasteering safe?” is one that we hear every now and then from members of the public who have never heard about or seen coasteering before. We believe that it is.
Working With Swim Research
We’re incredibly proud and fortunate to have a fantastic group of businesses and organisations supporting the work that we do here at Cornish Rock Tors and Cornish Swim Tours. Swim Research are one of the businesses that we are lucky enough to be working with.

But challenge shouldn’t be limited to a text book, as the benefits of giving children a challenge outside of the classroom builds confidence, self esteem and motivation.
