Snorkel Stand Up Paddleboarding Tour, Cornwall.

Explore Newquay’s stunning coastal scenery whilst learning about its history rife with mystery and drama that is still visible on the gorgeous coastline today. This is an experience that can be tailored to suit anyone, from having a more tranquil and calm time to a fast-paced adventure. Learn how to balance on your Stand Up Paddle Board within minutes and see the beautiful underwater wildlife from a whole new perspective. Hear about the gin plundering pirates and shipwrecks and gain knowledge about Newquay’s history from its magnificent seabed. This is a perfect adventure for anyone with an inquisitive mind, whether you’re wanting to learn more about our coastline’s environment or trying something new. 


Snorkel Safari in the Deep Blue, Devon.

Take on the cold sea in a 90-minute exploration of the ocean with the Ocean Conservation Trust and their Ocean Discovery Rangers. Learn more about how the ocean works, its importance in regulating global functions and ways to protect it as you connect with the ocean on a whole new level. Join our fully-qualified BSAC Snorkel Instructors and take your first steps into snorkelling as you explore Mount Batten Beach as you learn about snorkelling equipment and basic snorkel techniques. If you’re wanting to connect with the ocean, this is a fantastic experience for you!


Cornish Coasteering Tour, Cornwall. 

Go on one of Trevone Bay Adventures’ adrenaline-fuelled coasteering tours and see Cornwall at it’s best! Scramble, traverse and wild swim along the beautiful Cornish coastline whilst discovering incredible caves and rock formations. Connect with the Cornish wildlife from rockpool creatures to sea birds and maybe even a grey seal or two! At the end of your adventure, if you choose too, you can jump into the sea from a variety of different heights, and learn how to coasteer safely. If you feel like pushing yourself and trying something new, this is the adventure for you!


No matter if you’re new to exploring the water or you’re a seasoned adventurer, there are lots of fantastic adventures that can enable you to fall in love with being in the water, regardless of the Great British weather!
