Ecoasteering – North Coast

An educational experience with a dash of adventure, our Ecoasteering sessions are aimed at curious coasteerers who want to learn more about the environment that they’re enjoying.  Whether you call it extreme rock-pooling or educational coasteering, we’ll take you to areas rich in marine life and share with you the wonders of the ecosystem that you’re jumping off.

Following some of our regular coasteering routes around Port Gaverne, you’ll spend around two hours in the sea and on the rocks with a knowledgeable Ecoasteering guide who will help you to find, identify and learn about some of the inhabitants of the rocky foreshore and surrounding water.  You’re likely to come across a wide range of rock pool creatures and a variety of sea birds, and may even be lucky enough to spot some seals or basking sharks (don’t worry, they’re harmless filter feeders) off in the distance whilst swimming between coves and jumping from rock ledges into the sea.

Ecoasteering costs £45 per person and includes the use of all necessary equipment, including a warm 5mm wetsuit, thick-soled wetsuit boots, a buoyancy aid and a helmet.  All you need to bring is a towel, swimwear and an old pair of shorts.

Port Gaverne is located seven miles from Polzeath (follow signs to Port Isaac) and participants will need their own means of transport to get to and from the venue.
