Up For An Adventure?

Come with us and experience nature’s own adventure playground around the beautiful North Devon coast.

If you’re a newcomer to coasteering, then you’ll be pleased to hear that it’s minimum skill for maximum thrill! We’ve over 20 years of experience - taking groups coasteering in North Devon - so we know how to give you a totally brilliant time, whilst still having a completely safe time.

Have you got what it takes? This session involves jumping from 3ft rocks - at the start - up to 30ft (competent jumpers only). Be prepared to take the leap!

HEADS UP! This is not a walk in the park.  We're going into nature's arena and she can be a temperamental mistress;  so be prepared for a raw adrenaline adventure.

We are lucky enough to be based in Watermouth Cove - one of the finest coasteering locations anywhere in Britain. It’s a private section of coast that we’ll share with you as you climb over rocks, jump into the sea, swim through gullies, explore caves and find out what an ‘impact zone’ is for yourself!

Note: if jumping into the sea isn't your thing, we reccommend our Coastal Rafting or Party SUP session which can be tailored to exclude jumps and have more games instead.

Minimum age of 11 required.

How much does it cost?

Prices are £38 per person for a three-hour  session.


Where are we?

Our HQ is in Watermouth Cove in Ilfracombe and it’s our most popular spot due to the stunning private coastline and caves (not to mention the hot showers, bar and changing areas). EX349SJ

We used to run activities in Croyde, around the Baggy Point headland. It can be an amazing location for extreme sports, but is very tide and swell-dependent and due to the fact that we had to share the route with lots of other companies, we now use the picturesque route around Watermouth, which is only a 25 minute drive from Croyde.

Never done this kind of thing before, so I tried coasteering with my brother. It was probably one of the best things i;ve ever done. So I went back the next day by myself. And the day after that. I would be going everyday, but it was the last day of my holiday. The staff are super awesome, nice and fun. Its a great price, not expensive and I will 100% be making the 5 hour trip from watford to devon just to go coasteering as much as I can. Definitely something to do when there. Cam and Matt were awesome leaders when we were going out over the rocks, jumping and swimming. Great group of guys who make the experience all the better.

“The best Coasteering in Devon”

Very impressed with Active Escape from start to finish, very easy to arrange for a large group with simple booking and payment. Well organised, laid back approach as long as everyone listens and takes note of the safety advice. No pressure on anyone who didn't fancy the bigger jumps and easy exit points. For those that did, differing heights made it an excellent experience for a Stag do group, in a stunning part of the North Devon coastline. Ben & Clare were excellent guides on the day, friendly, knowledgeable and clearly enjoy what they do! Will certainly be returning
