What is Coasteering?

Coasteering is an exciting and action-packed exploration of a stretch of rocky coastline. During our popular sessions we travel along an otherwise inaccessible stretch of the Cornish coast, swimming into rocky coves, through exhilarating whitewater features, adventuring into caves and of course leaping from our favourite jump spots. We are backed by the National Trust and hold the only activities license for operating in Port Gaverne. We pride ourselves on maintaining small group sizes to provide the best possible experience.

We offer a range of routes and activity levels, making coasteering with Cornish Rock Tors a truly accessible experience for all ages and abilities. Our sessions take place in the beautiful National Trust location at Port Gaverne offering us access to a stunning stretch of unspoilt coast. We do run more Advanced routes upon request. Please get in contact for further information. All equipment is provided including a warm 5mm wetsuit, thick-soled wetsuit boots, a buoyancy aid and a helmet.

    Introduction to Coasteering

    Introduction to Coasteering

    Designed for those who have never been coasteering before and suitable for all ages and ability levels, every activity on our introductory routes are optional allowing you to do as much or as little as you are comfortable with.

    We’ll introduce you to all of the basics and help you get to grips with coasteering in a calm and supportive setting. Run within the sheltered cove Port Gaverne which offers a variety of routes and options depending upon conditions, you’ll spend up to two hours in the water exploring the caves, scrambling over rock platforms, swimming, climbing above deep water and jumping from rock ledges of varying heights (should you choose to do so).

    Our Introduction Coasteering session is popular with families and groups of younger teenagers.

    Introduction Coasteering costs £45 per person.

    Participants must be aged 10 or over.

    Intermediate Coasteering

    Aimed at adventurous, able adults and confident teenagers who have completed the Introductory session, Intermediate Coasteering is perfect for those looking for a unique, challenging, and memorable outside experience.

    We’ll spend around two hours exploring an awe-inspiring stretch of cliffs, interspersed with coves and caves. We’ll climb across wave-swept rocks, swim through gullies and across open stretches of water and climb up progressively higher ledge systems to launch ourselves off some spectacular jumps along the way.

    Cornish Rock Tors’ Intermediate Coasteering session is our most popular and highly acclaimed activity. It provides an exhilarating challenge for all – even seasoned coasteerers.
