Coasteering in St Austell Bay

Vertical Descents is the only company to offer coasteering in the St Austell Bay area.

Offering routes in Fowey, Pentewan and Gorran, we can take you to a variety of locations offering varied coasteering experiences. Our mobile adventure bus will meet you before our expert guides will take you along this previously uncoasteered part of the Cornish coast.

There are three possible routes in the St Austell area:

Fowey - This route leaves from Ready Money Cove and offers a mellow route, with many great aspects of coasteering, this is a great introduction to coasteering and enables you to see some fantastic sealife and a great piece of the Cornish coast.

Pentewan - An all encompassing coasteering route. With jumps, slides, caves, adventure swimming and some great climbs, this route can be tailored to suit both family groups and the adrenaline junkies.

Gorran Haven - A coasteering route unrivalled along this stretch of coast. Available for everyone who wants a true coasteering experience.

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
Booking Availability: Vertical Descents run coasteering almost all year round; your adventure will start at either 9:30am, 1:30pm or 4:30pm (unless otherwise arranged). Speciifc times will be allocated to you when Vertical Descents call to confirm your booking.

Ability Level Requirements: This adventure is open to all. No previous coasteering experience is required, although those with more experience will be provided with greater challenges.
