Coasteering in the Fowey Area

Vertical Descents is the only company to offer coasteering in the St Austell Bay area. Offering routes in Fowey, Pentewan and Gorran, we can take you to a variety of locations offering varied coasteering experiences. 

Our mobile adventure bus will meet you at location where our expert guides will take you coasteering along this previously uncoasteered part of the Cornish coast. 

The route at Fowey leaves from Ready Money Cove and offers a mellow route, with many great aspects of coasteering, this is a great introduction to coasteering and enables you to see some fantastic sealife and a great piece of the Cornish coast.
