The first question that we get asked at Hot Rock Coasteer is... What is Coasteering and what does it involve?
First up, we will introduce you to the team of Coasteer guides here at Hotrocks. Then you will be given a wetsuit, buoyancy aid, a pair of protective shorts and a helmet. You will also have brought your own pair of old trainers. When we’re fully kitted out we will then run through a detailed, fun and important safety brief complete with equipment checks.
Now ready to embark on our adventure, we hit the water!
Coasteering involves what we call adventure swimming. Sometimes through open water but mainly along the base of the sea cliffs, stopping on route to experience the rise and fall of the swell against the cliffs. This is known as the Coasteering Elevator.
On our Coasteer expedition you will contour the huge towering sea cliffs within which hide some of Cornwall’s deepest darkest smuggling secrets.
Coasteering also involves a certain amount of rock climbing and scrambling. This means traversing the lower level sea cliffs, or climbing a small section, to get out of the water. The level of climbing can range from easy to very difficult; this will depend on you and your group's ability and comfort levels. Due to the low level of climbing, technical ropes will not be used as part of Coasteering.
Obviously, what goes up must come down!! This is where the jumps come in. What better way to get from one section of the Coasteer to the next, than to jump off the cliffs into the ocean! An amazing experience in itself, our highly qualified guides will take you through, step by step, the safest techniques for entering the water from height. From 2ft to 35ft it’s enough to make even the bravest quiver in their wetsuit!! Don’t panic. If jumping isn’t your thing, there’s always an alternative route. The experience is entirely your own, we’re here to provide the adventure not to push you into it.
Here at Hot Rock Coasteer the real fun happens around the rocks, where the water movement creates our own personal fun park! Depending on conditions, we will be experiencing the Coasteer flush... We’ll be spun around in real whirlpools that can grow up to 10ft in diameter and sucked under by Coasteering stoppers, which are very similar to waterfalls.
If you want to experience an adventure of a lifetime, with a twist! Grab your old trainers and come join the FUN!! CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU!!
