Coasteering in Padstow

Coasteering in the Padstow area offers everything from high adrenaline fuelled adventure to sedate and scenic family days out.

Vertical Descents have been operating coasteering in this area since day one, and it's still one of our favourite places to coasteer! Driving our adventure bus up to the area we can meet you at our coasteering locations and offer you a high quality adventure experience.

There are four possible coasteering routes around Padstow:

Harlyn - High tide only so we have to work around the tides for this great coasteering route. It's a short but amazing route with all the features required for a fantastic trip.

Mother Iveys - A spectacular little bay offering a fantastic coasteering route which has everything we need from caves to whirlpools, big jumps to high climbs. This is a real challenge!

Treyarnon - A coasteering trail as exciting as they come, with a natural window cave or - on high tide - deep sump into a cavern, it is a wonder to behold. A tall stack and some of the longest cave systems in the area meet you on the other side, along with some slides and great jumps.

Hawkers Cove - The route closest to Padstow, it provides a more mellow choice, exploring the meandering river estuary that is steeped in history and backed up by some great jumps and fantastic deep water climbing challenges.

The weather and sea state will determine the best location for the day however we will try and suit the coasteering location to the needs of the group.

Duration (Exact): All Routes - 2-3 Hours
