I would only say that if you... More

Thanks for your review and feedback. We are aware of the changing issue in Cadgwith and are constantly looking for a more convenient area to change in. However it's difficult in such a small village! Glad you had a great time - you're so lucky seeing dolphins! See you next time. Annette More

A surprise adventure for my husbands 50th Birthday. Neither had done this before and I was apprehensive. Our instructor Matt was very informative - safety first and great fun! The water was a nice temperature when wearing the winter wetsuits provided. Jumping off 5 metre high rocks, swimming in caves and messing around in the swells of the ocean. Adrenaline... More

My boyfriend and I did the coasteering with Matt. It was so much fun! Matt made it all very exciting and varied throughout. I was a bit scared at times but he was really supportive. The landscape where it took place was absolutely stunning! This is a fantastic way to get a real sense of the awesomeness of the Cornish... More
