Cornish Adventure is based on Dinham farm Campsite and this is where your adventure will begin.

We have a carpark where you can leave your vehicle, you will be shuttled to the activity venue by Cornish Adventure minibus. We like to blast out a few sea shanties on route as you enjoy the stunning views of Cornwall.

We will get you kitted up at base into our top quality equipment. We have a huge range of wetsuits, wetsuit boots, buoyancy aids and helmets. Once we’re all ready we’ll head out towards the adventure venue which is a short journey away.

Port Quin is a brilliant location for Cornish Coasteering because it is a natural harbour and very sheltered from the swells and wind that the Atlantic often throws at us. It has a variety of jumps on high tide only and for this reason we plan our sessions around the high tide meaning that it’s fairly rare that we need to cancel. The scenery at Port Quin is breathtaking and includes historical buildings such as the Doyden Folly. A small castle built by a Victorian socialite to entertain his fiends and throw parties!

Port Gaverne is more exposed to the conditions and so we need fairly calm conditions to Coasteer here, although a moderate swell is a lot of fun! From Port Gaverne the views extend up the Coast towards King Arthur’s castle and Bude beyond. On a clear day you can even see Lundy island on the horizon. 

The sea caves at Port Gaverne are incredible to explore with a myriad of tunnels and chambers that we can explore. It is possible to Coasteer on low tide at Port Gaverne in calm conditions so we can sometimes add some extra sessions at short notice when the Atlantic settles down.

The Camel estuary is the location for our Cornish Kayaking Adventures. We have a lesson on Porthilly beach and then practice the basics before we venture out on our journey. We launch before the low tide, and this allows us use the tide to assist us on our way as we head out along Rock beach towards Daymer bay. From here we can cross over the Padstow channel and rest on Tregirls beach for a hot chocolate. If energy levels allow we may head out further to the infamous Doom bar! The doom bar is a large sand bank that stretches all the way across the mouth of the estuary, for the very adventurous we may even be able to surf the doom bar!

As the tide turns we resume our journey back towards Padstow, crossing the channel once again back to Rock beach and let the current push us back to Porthilly. 

Cornish Surfing takes place on Polzeath beach. We walk down to the beach from New Polzeath on low tide. The beach is much bigger on low tide and this spreads out the crowd giving us more space to enjoy our surf lesson safely. 

Polzeath beach is a beautiful location to surf where you can enjoy views out to Pentire point, Newland island and Stepper Point. The sunsets at Polzeath are epic!
