Could not recommend more My partner and I had a fantastic time on a private coasteering tour with Mark, he was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and encouraging. We started quite literally in the deep end with a big rock jump into a 40 ft pool, and experienced an interesting range of climbing, swimming and jumps. Not for the faint hearted but a brilliant adrenaline ride!

Private coasteering adventure Mark is a mad ferret! Great guy who's enthusiasm makes the day even better! We couldn't have asked for more. Mark catered the coasteering for two of us. He knew the perfect times to get to each area so that there were no other groups to queue behind and so that the water levels were just right! Safety conscious and not pushy at all if you're not confident with with big jumps. He packed the day full of adrenaline and laughs. Highly recommend!

Exploring with the mad ferret! Mark was a great host and went out of his way to look after us, giving us a Fantastic experience! What a great way to spend a morning !
Amazing, bespoke Coasteering experience Thank you Mark for the fantastic experience of plunging, exploring the coastline from the sea and the spectacular cavern adventure. You made sure we were safe and briefed on safe techniques as well as having a fun and laid back approach. You obviously know the area and the tides really well which meant we had a unique experience at the best and quietest time of day. You clearly still enjoy it yourself which also added to our enjoyment! As a family of 4 we felt well looked after and can’t wait to come back for more adventures!

Brilliant coasteering experience We were a mixed group aged from 12 to 50. Mark, ably assisted by Joe, was fun, knowledgeable and relaxed. They both took time ensure we were well briefed on safety, to encourage everyone and to build confidence, until we were all doing the most amazing jumps and having a whale of a time. A fantasic experience for everyone which I would heartily recommend.
Coastering Looked these guys up on Google and plunged for it and booked a session. What a great choice it turned out as these guys were very friendly and provided the goods. As where some places run the sessions by the book these guys find out what you want out the session and provide it. Session started with a easy entry into the water with a quick swim to a small jumping point where we were shown the correct way to enter the water. Then onto a swim into a cave which was great. Views of the coast was great and could not see a better way to see it. Onto higher jumps thro out the session working upto a 30 ft jump to finish the day. Big thumbs up to these guys and won't be looking anywhere else in the future.
Great and safe Took my 14yr old son and his friend for the very first time,Mike and Russ explained everything in great detail and took the time to have a nice chat with us. Unfortunately I had an asthma attack whilst in the water and both instructors dealt with this brilliantly and made me feel at ease . I can honestly say we will be coming back to mad ferret to do the even bigger jumps and my son can't wait. Thanks again for a great experience ( they even have hot showers to take when you've finished)
Amazing Fantastic day out something not to miss mark is amazing at building your confidence and helping you conquer what you thought was impossible

Great outing! Called Mark and he was happy to set up a trip for four of us at an extra £5 per head, which was very reasonable. Then two more joined so he reduced back to his £40 per head. Mark and one other leader took us out and after a short induction got us jumping! Gradually increased height and introduced variety. Had a really good morning, loads of fun for the five teenagers and one older guy! Happy to recommend the experience particularly as, when we were leaving the last jump site, a line of 20+ in another group from another company trailed around the cliff top. Would not have wanted to wait while 19 or more people jumped. We'll be back in Newquay soon and it'll be Mad Ferret that get the call again. Already looking forward to it!

Have a Question? This might help...

What is coasteering?

Coasteering is an adventure activity that combines low level coastal traversing and sea swimming in order to explore our beautiful coastline. All our tours begin with small step off points to allow you to build your confidence in the sea before we set off to explore the various nooks and crannies of the coastline. Along the way we will swim through rapids, water sliders and whirlpools whilst keeping an eye out for the local marine life and taking in the wonderful scenery. Depending on the tide and time of year we will then explore smugglers caves before progressing on to the higher jumps and finishing on the 10m high cliff ledge!

What happens on a typical tour?

On the day of your tour you will be met at our Coasteering HQ on Fistral Beach at a prearranged time. Following a brief introduction to Coasteering our expert instructors will run through a detailed safety briefing which covers:

  • Correct entry and exit from the water.
  • Rock Traversing Techniques.
  • Climbing Techniques.
  • Jumping Techniques.
  • Current Sea Conditions.
  • Safety Signals & Emergency Procedures.

After the safety briefing you will issued with warm winter wetsuits, buoyancy aids and safety helmets before heading off to the changing rooms. Once your belongings are secured it is then only a short walk to the beginning of our route and time for the Mad Ferret fun to begin!

How long does the tour last?

With The Mad Ferrets you will spend a minimum of 2 hours exploring Newquay’s stunning coastline. However, due to varying group sizes and sea conditions this can sometimes be much longer and so we would advise that you allow at least 4 hours to complete the whole experience. This includes the introductions and safety briefing and allows time to get changed before and after your activity.

Is coasteering safe?

As with any outdoor adventure activity there are some risks involved, however at Mad Ferret Coasteering we have done all we can to minimise these risks. Our equipment is of the highest quality and is regularly checked for defects and replaced when necessary. Our highly experienced Coasteering Instructors are regularly tested and trained and up to date with all required qualifications.

Is coasteering scary?

In a word, no. This is because each tour can be personally tailored to your individual abilities and fitness levels and therefore your experience can be as mellow or extreme as you would like it to be. There is absolutely no pressure on anyone to tackle the higher jumps and all our tours have plenty of options to suit everyone. We also offer Family Group Tours and Private Coasteering Tours for even more peace of mind.

Do I have to do the high jumps?

Absolutely not! Everything on our tour is entirely optional so if you would prefer to simply bob along in a wetsuit and buoyancy aid admiring the beautiful coastline The Mad Ferrets will be more than happy to accommodate.

Do I have to be a good swimmer?

Whilst we do require that all participants are able to swim at least 25 meters without stopping, this does not mean you have to be a strong swimmer. Once you are wearing the buoyancy aid you will find it extremely easy to float along without too much effort.

Do you provide equipment?

We provide you with warm winter wetsuits, buoyancy aids and safety helmets. All you need to bring along is a towel, your swimwear and some protective footwear, e.g. wetsuit boots or an old pair of trainers.

What do I need to bring?

Please remember bring along a towel, your swimwear and some protective footwear, e.g. wetsuit boots or an old pair of trainers.

Do you do family only tours?

Yes, we can provide private tours for families and groups, more details can be found here.

Do you do private group tours?

Yes, we can provide private tours for families and groups, more details can be found here.

What are the restrictions/requirements?

I have an existing medical condition/injury, what should i do?
