Cornish Rock Tors is a well established outdoor adventure activity provider founded in 2006; we pioneered coasteering in Cornwall a decade ago and our long track record and positive reviews (5* and certificate of excellence on Trip Advisor, 5/5 on Facebook and 4.9/5 Google Reviews) are testament to the strength and professionalism of the team that you will be joining.

Our team of professional water sport guides share unforgettable outdoor experiences with visitors all year round, and on a daily basis from spring through autumn.

Recruitment Open Day

Saturday March 14th 2020

If you’re interested in working with us then we invite you to join us on our 2020 Recruitment Open Day on Saturday March 14th  from 10am – 4pm at Port Gaverne.  The day will provide an opportunity for you to see how we operate our activities at our venue, and for us to meet you and asses your water-based skills throughout over the course of the day.  It’ll be tiring, probably a bit cold, and definitely lots of fun.
