Amazing adventure, perfect day and lots to see. Kids loved the coves/caves and exploring. Sampling some seaweed and other delights you find on expensive restaurant menus. A great afternoon out - well organised would book again.

We were a little apprehensive at first but we but our guide (Matt) helped to settle our nerves, talked us through the basics and treated us to a wonderful tour of the south coast starting from Cadgwith Cove. Matt was knowledgable and informative and also tipped us off about saffron buns - yum! We loved our time on the sea... More

We went sea-kayaking as a family of 5 (youngest 8) with Matt as our Lizard Adventure guide. He was a friendly and knowledgeable guide - really supportive of the kids (ages 15, 13 and 8) and adapted the pace to what they could cope with. The experience was topped off with seeing dolphins. 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

Our two teenage boys absolutely loved this! Rob was a superb leader- very safety conscious and experienced in the world of sea swimming, rock scrambling and cliff jumping. My husband and I were able to walk along the coast path above and watch the activities below at a few points. The scenery on the Lizard coast is breath-taking. Thank you... 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.
