Deepwater cliff jumping – No coasteer is complete without a handful of deepwater jumps. Whether they are big or small, challenging yourself and overcoming your fear is truly worth the reward. We start small and we’ll explain and show you the best way to jump so right from the start you feel confident in yourself.
You don’t need to complete a jump in order to move on to the next section, so it’s completely up to you!
Cave discovery – Coasteering in Newquay at the right time of year, tide and sea state provides participants with the opportunity to explore historic smugglers caves and hideaways hidden by the tide. As conditions align you’ll discover large caves eroded over the centuries by storms. Don’t worry if your not a fan of tight spaces many of the caves are as big as cathedrals, great for gently swimming through and exploring whats normally hidden by the tide line.
Sluices, Whirlpools, Gullies & Pour overs – Guides are always on the lookout for elements that can be added to your session, as the tide moves, areas between rocks where water sloshes through, wash around or pours over become fun sections to be utilised.
Rise & Fall of the Ocean – An element which runs throughout Coasteering is the ‘rise & fall’, the undulations of the sea. You’ll be taught how to utilise and maximise your motions and go with the flow of the sea to help you enter and exit the ocean without a struggle. Timing is everything as you let the rise of the swells assist you in exiting or the fall, wash you through sluices and put overs. Always to be respected the motion in the ocean is a great addition to any coasteer session.
Although Coasteering can involve these elements each provider across the UK has different methods and means available to them and are often limited by group ability/size and conditions of the day.
Where ever you Coasteer make sure you book with a provider associated with the National Coasteering Charter (NCC). Providers voluntarily sign up to the NCC to show and learn Coasteering best practise. Find out more about the NCC on their website.
