Coasteering on the Isles of Scilly

 

 

Isles of Scilly coasteering has arrived! We are very proud to offer coasteering on the fabulous Isles of Scilly from summer 2015. These unique islands, 28 miles from mainland Cornwall, are an outdoor adventurer's playground, and we believe we can take adventure on Scilly to new heights with our coasteering adventures. Working in collaboration with the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust and Natural England, we use the magnificent site at Peninnis Head on the main island of St. Mary's, just a stone's throw from the centre of Hugh Town.

Our first visit to Peninnis Head filled us with great excitement, as we instantly knew we'd discovered a site of incredibly high quality coasteering. The landscape is unique, with other-worldly granite rock formations jutting into the sea. And if journeying through this wonderful landscape wasn't enough, you will find coasteering of the highest quality. Explore incredible features, such as gullies, piles of giant boulders to scramble, swim and get washed under, towering granite cliffs, and, of course, HUGE jumps.

We truly feel this is one of the best experiences you can have on the Isles of Scilly, and can't wait to take you on a coasteering trip during your visit to these wonderful islands.

How does it work?

Throughout the season, from Easter to Autumn, we will offer coasteering by demand on one or two days of the week. Whether you are planning a trip to the Scilly Isles, or have just arrived, get in touch and we can let you know what day we can take you out. Alternatively, look on our calendar to see if we are running any sessions. Our coasteering site is conveniently situated on St. Mary's, just a short walk from Hugh Town. So whether you're staying on the main island, or on one of the off-islands, getting to us won't be too difficult. Please note that we do not organise travel to and from the islands. 

We will need a minimum group of six people to run a coasteering session, but don't worry if you're less than that number, as we will put you with some other eager coasteerers to form a large enough group. We also need the right weather conditions to be able to safely enjoy the water at Peninnis Head, so having a bit of flexibility in which day you are available for coasteering would be a big advantage.

All equipment is provided, though we do recommend you bring your own footwear, ideally a pair of trainers, or wetsuit boots. However we do have spares if you've already arrived here and didn't bring any spare shoes with you.
