Great Coasteering adventure with Sean 😁 We had a great experience doing coasteering yesterday with Sean! He made the whole thing really fun and was very knowledgeable about the Cornish coast. We had a seal follow us round too which was pretty fun 🦭. We would 10000% do it again when we come back to Cornwall.

Windy but fun alternative We were meant to be sea kayaking but due to the weather we swapped to the super paddleboard. Our instructor Alex was super informative and friendly and made sure that we had an amazing time even out on choppy waters. We saw seals which was incredible and made it a truly memorable experience.

Family coasteering with Sean Myself and my two sons 24 & 13 went with Sean for an afternoon coasteering. We had a great time, all kitted out, brief and into the water. No pressure to jump from high, coaching was great, some fun games and very relaxed. Would highly recommend.

Cornish challenge Amy was a great instructor, we had a lot of fun. We’ve used the Newquay activity centre for loads of different activities and always have the best time. This time we did the Cornish challenge and the estuary SUP and would recommend both!

Great experience and a must do! We went for kayaking with James and it was a wonderful experience. Checked out multiple locations along the shore, understood the history, watched a lot of birds and seals and at the same time had a great time doing this adventure. James was a great guide and very patient with us since we were beginners. Highly recommended!!

Great fun! Great trip! Super fun, Jacob the instructor was great fun and had lots of knowledge about the coast line history. Had a fit of uncontrollable laughter when trying to stand on the SUP. Would recommend. Would say a warmer day is a better ideal if you’re like me as I’m a cold bod!

I took a private surf lesson with James and had a fantastic time! He is an excellent surf instructor and quickly adjusted his teaching to meet my individual needs, abilities and skillset. I have taken beginner surfing lessons before, but have never caught green waves until my lesson with James! In addition to that, he is very knowledgeable about the local geography and surf conditions and freely shared this information with me throughout the session. He has a passion for surfing that was clear for the duration of the session and his genuine excitement when I caught a wave was awesome. He frequently checked in with me to see how I was feeling and made me feel safe and supported the whole time. I would highly recommend taking a lesson with him!

I had a fantastic time participating in a Sea Kayak / snorkelling experience recently. Alex was brilliant - we were inexperienced as a group and he was very patient. Also, he has excellent local knowledge and I have learned a lot about the history of Newquay and the local coastline. The team at the Newquay Activity Centre are all both very professional and friendly and have first rate customer service skills. I am keen to book another session in the near future -there is a large range of activities to choose from - and highly recommend this business to anyone visiting Cornwall.

Having just completed the ISA Level 1 Surf Instructor course offered by the Newquay Activity Centre I can honestly say these guys are amazing at what they do. Every member of the team is buzzing with passion and enthusiasm creating a wonderful atmosphere for trainee instructors and surf students alike. An extra special shout out to the course organiser Freddie, she was attentive to all of the trainees needs whilst keep us in track throughout with a perfect balance of professionalism and a friendliness.. and often damn right hilarious! I couldn't recommend studying with this team more! Very much looking forward to working with them in the future!

Private surf lesson Our 3 girls had the BEST time during their private surf lesson. From booking right through to the lesson everyone was so helpful and friendly. We were made to feel very welcome and comfortable. Alex and Luke were the BEST instructors. So friendly and incredibly enthusiastic! They managed to get all 3 girls standing on their boards and our girls had the time of their lives. They loved every minute. Cannot reccomend highly enough. We will definitely be back! Thank you so much.
