Cornish Coasteering is a small friendly business that specialises in coasteering. We have an intimate and extensive knowledge of the best coasteering locations in the area and will tailor your session to make the best use of tide & swell conditions. We keep participant to instructor ratios low so that you get the most out of your session and it does not feel too crowded.

We are based on an idilic campsite, Dinham Farm, where you can enjoy campfires and wide open spaces. We have converted a shipping container into our base where we meet and greet you and get you kitted out ready for your adventure.

The team

Coll

Cornish Coasteering's founder, Coll, comes from a strong Beach Lifeguarding and watersports background. He loves to get on or in the water at any opportunity be it for coasteering, surfing, sailing, scuba diving or sea kayaking. After working for other leading centres for many years he decided to establish Cornish Coasteering. He is enthusiastic about sharing his favourite environment with others and is knowledgeable about the local area and wildlife.

An article in the Guardian newspaper describes coasteering with Coll;

Coll says I should get familiar with the two-metre leaps before I think about trying from four metres up. Sure Coll, just let me at it, will you? But he's right, the four-metre jump is much more tricky… When I (eventually) open my eyes, all I can see is a rich, deep blue colour. Then, like a buoy, my body suddenly pops back up to the surface. I have to do another jump.  Read the full article here.

Henry

Cornish Coasteering's wingman Henry lives 10 mins from HQ and cycles to work when he's on a get fit campaign! Now in his fifth season of coasteering in the local area, Henry knows our routes inside out.

He has always been the outdoorsy type, growing up near the beach, and as part of the surf-lifesaving club and scouts. He’s good in the water and swimming runs in the family; his brother earned us a commonwealth bronze at Glasgow 2014 and is World Champion in the 4 x 200m Freestyle relay.
Henry is currently  studying International Politics in Manchester and so looks forward to spending his summers at home in Cornwall. Henry is an enthusiastic, capable and patient instructor who will help make your session safe and fun.
