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. Our instructors aim to help you get the most out of your Cornish Coasteering adventure and have trained to keep you safe and have a fun session.

We are based on an idyllic 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


Cornish Coasteering's founder, Coll, comes from a 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.

Cornish Coasteering's wingman Henry lives 10 mins from HQ and having spent six seasons working alongside Coll has stepped up to become a full fledged partner whilst helping Coll set up their new adventure Cornish Kayaking. Now in his Ninth season of coasteering in the local area, Henry knows our routes inside out and will help you to share his love of adventure on the Cornish coastline.
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 is a two time World Champion in the 4 x 200m Freestyle relay. Although Henry maintains he is still the better swimmer!
Henry spent his early years at Cornish Coasteering alongside his studies in International Politics at Manchester Metropolitan University. Having graduated he now spends his winters travelling and working elsewhere all the while waiting for the sun to come back so he can return to his home in Cornwall. Henry is an enthusiastic, capable and patient instructor who will help make your session safe and fun.


Charlie has been camping on Dinham Farm campsite (where we are based) with his family for many years. He first came to us on work experience whilst completing his degree in Outdoor Education at Plymouth in 2016. We quickly realised he was pretty handy in the water and offered him his dream job at Cornish Adventure! Charlie has been on the team for7 years now and enjoys his travels in the winters during our off season. Charlie is a really fun guide and full of energy and enthusiasm, he will make sure you have an enjoyable time with us. 


Gracie’s laugh is infectious and she is full of positivity which rubs off on our groups and team! She came to us as a surf instructor looking for more in life and fell in love with or Coasteering, Kayaking & Surfing Adventures and the varied work life this entails.
She is now ready for another season full of laughs, good vibes and Cornish Adventure!


Amber has been with us for two summers now and we hope she will be back for more! She is currently a student at Falmouth so her helping us out in our busiest times during the holidays is a great help in peak season. She came to us as a Surf Coach who was enthusiastic about cliff jumping and enjoys everything to do with the water so she quickly became involved in our Coasteering and kayaking sessions too. Amber is friendly and approachable and a great asset to our team!


Laura was our rookie last season but she learnt quickly, coming from a strong water-sports background. A student from Newcastle she is familiar with Cornwall, having been coming here since childhood. 
She is back for another season and looking to expand her qualifications and experience with us. We are very happy to have her on the team!


James is an all around waterman and enjoys sharing this skill and knowledge with our groups. He has been involved with Cornish Adventure for a few seasons now and after being full time with us last summer he is returning for the season ahead. He is a solid all rounder with a big appetite for adventure! With this photo he is often our Cornish Adventure poster boy too, with Harry and Charlie seen in the background!


Ollie has done one full season with us and is signed up for more this year! It suits him well as he can save to surf and travel in the winter, this boy is living the dream!
He is an experienced and enthusiastic surf coach and this year we hope to get him through his Coasteering and Kayaking leaders awards. He is a valued team member that can be relied on to make sure customers have a great time!


Harry loves to surf and loves to travel, he has many a story to tell of adventures both at home and away! Harry is on his third season working with us now and he splits his working week between Beach Lifeguarding at Polzeath and running activities for us.
He is an experienced lead Coasteer guide and Surf Coach as well as a kayak instructor in the making!


Angus has worked part time for Cornish Adventure for a number of years alongside his job as a beach lifeguard with the RNLI. He has now decided to live the dream full time. Angus has a lot of experience in and around the water starting in his Surf Life Saving career and throughout his job at the RNLI.
Angus is Henry’s brother as Henry likes to point out “his younger and uglier brother” but even Henry admits that Angus is a great instructor and will help keep you safe and full of excitement throughout your Cornish Adventure.
