Putsborough & Woolacombe, Devon, EX33 1LB



Here In North Devon we are blessed to have a couple of routes to choose from to suit your stay and level of adrenaline. Each session will start with a safety brief that will cover all safety aspects, before you head out with your experienced guides. All of our team are fully qualified Coasteering guides and Beach Lifeguards.

Hele Bay, Ilfracombe

Hele Bay is a small cove on the edge of Ilfracombe. The beach is sand with lots of rock pools and is easily accessible. Exploring the secret smugglers’ caves on your coasteering adventure, clambering around the rocks to ‘Fishing Rock’ or ‘Blythes Cove’. There are some epic jumps at this location so “Hold onto your hat”……….

Our go-to route and the most popular, has something for everyone and normally a lot quieter than other areas being less well known. A great combination of swimming, traversing & Jumping. Because of the Hele geography, there are so many options when it comes to jumps, from little ones to build your confidence & technique to the biggest we are allowed to do which will make the most confident pause ( it makes us pause every time ). With the route the way it is, there are some truly amazing sights along the way, some beautiful rock formations & veins, seals, Ilfracombe harbour and at the right time a truly breathtaking sunset. Highly recommended for those that like a challenge and want to push their boundaries.

This route can be taken to the next level if desire and the tides/weather play ball! Please see our session options for more details

Baggy point, Croyde

Croyde bay needs no introduction as it is a very popular destination and for very good reason. A truly stunning cove, that allows you to sit back, relax and take a load off, unless you are coming coasteering of course 🙂 Baggy Point is a headland in North Devon that separates Croyde bay and Putsbourgh.

The sandstone rocks are popular with climbers and coasteering participants. If you are up for the adventure- jumping, swimming and getting washed about then this is the location for you……..

A very popular route and as such can get a little busy and crowded in the high season. Having said this, it’s a truly diverse and interesting place to explore that offers a lot from old smugglers caves, multiple gullies, diverse formations, smaller jumps, kamikaze runs and beautiful views across the bay! In our opinion its ideal for groups of differing ages & confidence, because of the geography of Croyde it allows for multiple exit points and places to take a rest should the need arise. Its defiantly still a challenge and a heap of fun to be had on this route but just behind the Hele route in terms of difficulty.

As with Hele, Croyde can also be taken to the next level as long as the tides/weather play ball. Please see our session options for more details
