Taking a coasteering trip along Newquay’s coast alone is a complete no-no, even if you’re experienced at the sport. This guided expedition lets you enjoy coasteering in safety and with all equipment provided, so you can focus on the scenery, swims, and jumps. Negotiate the water’s edge, caves, and whirlpools; and take deep-water leaps and swims, all with a qualified guide. A choice of time slots gives you useful flexibility.

Arrive at iFLY Basingstoke and safely float in an 800-horsepower vertical wind tunnel that generates a wall-to-wall cushion of air commonly used by professional skydivers without having to jump from a plane. Just about anyone can fly and no experience is necessary. Once inside the flight chamber, a tunnel operator slowly increases the wind speed until you and your instructor are airborne. Feel the adrenaline rush as you float at wind speeds reaching 130 to 175 mph (209 to 282 kph). The stable wall-to-wall airflow keeps you from falling off the column of air and your instructor is on hand at all times to guide you. The entire indoor skydiving experience takes about 90 minutes from start to finish. Each session includes up to 13 people, but you fly one-on-one with your instructor twice - the same freefall time as three tandem skydives! To ensure our team are able to fly you, it's vital you arrive at the venue no less than 45minutes before your booked flight time.

Traveling by all-terrain vehicle allows you to tackle uneven roads that are inaccessible by coach or car, while exploring with a private guide means that you’ll benefit from undivided attention and insider knowledge.

Coasteering takes you into an alien environment, one minute you can be traversing across barnacle-covered ledges, and the next you find yourself diving into the sea to cross water-filled zawns. The adrenaline-filled adventure will take you from secluded beaches to smugglers’ coves and secret caves inhabited by stunning sea life. It is one of the coolest ways to explore the gorgeous Cornish coastline. Each coasteer experience runs for 2-3 hours and involves a mix of traversing along a stretch of intertidal zone, over rocks and through water, using a variety of demonstrated techniques including climbing, swimming and jumping into water. With challenging terrain and an exceptionally rugged coastline, coasteering in Newquay is both a challenge and a thrill that gives you the chance to get closer to the marine life and seascape.
