Up For An Adventure?

Come with us and experience nature’s own adventure playground around the beautiful North Devon coast - this is one for the adrenaline junkies out there.

If you’re a newcomer to coasteering, then you’ll be pleased to hear that it’s minimum skill for maximum thrill! With over 20 years of experience taking groups coasteering in North Devon, 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 20ft. 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 an adrenaline adventure.

Our coasteering sessions run from Hele Bay. It’s an amazing section of coast that we’ll share with you as you climb over rocks, jump into the sea, swim through gullies and find out what an ‘impact zone’ is for yourself!

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



MINIMUM AGE: 12 years old

All participants must be able to swim and be confident in the sea



Been coasteering before and want something a bit different? Why not combine Coasteering with Stand Up Paddleboarding? For a great group adventure check out our Coasteer & Mega SUP

How much does it cost?

Prices are £40 per person for a three-hour session.


Where are we?

Our most popular Coasteer route is at Hele Bay, Ilfrcombe.  We love this little cove, with its great jumps and stunning coastline and its in easy reach of the toilets and car park where we'll meet up. EX34 9QZ

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 Hele Bay, 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
