About Lizard Adventure

In 2011, Annette and J-P Eatock, teachers at the time, decided to take a risk and start up a small adventure company.

 

The ethos behind the company was to share the amazing environment through the excitement of activities in the outdoors – learning what’s important whilst having tons of fun along the way. What better place to start than on the stunning Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall? It offers seclusion, a variety of aspects for all weathers and retains many facets of ‘old Cornwall’ that makes exploring phenomenal.

Over 10 years later and J-P is a National Trainer in Sea Kayak, Surf Kayak and Stand Up Paddleboarding; sharing his experience and knowledge with the team and clients, as well as technically advising many other companies, and training their staff. They are ultra-proud of the staff team who are uber enthusiastic to share the enthusiasm for the outdoors whilst retaining the quality of the ethos of this high quality, beautifully formed company.

Why Lizard Adventure?

We specialise in family activities and have found that many families return year after year for more adventures.

We pride ourselves on getting the right balance between safety and fun. Whether it’s a family bonding experience you’re after, or maybe you’d rather leave them to it and get a few hours peace – we can cater for all your family’s needs.

We have a huge range of wetsuits and cagoules, plus plenty of small buoyancy aids and helmets, so hopefully younger children won’t get too cold!

All activities have a lower age limit of 8 years. Please call us for a chat about the activities if you are unsure if it is suitable for your child.

If you want a bespoke session with children younger than 8, please give us a ring to see what we can do.

The Bosses

J-P has been training instructors and working in the outdoors industry since 1989, is a BCU Kayaking Level 5 Sea and Surf Coach, is vice-chair of the National Coasteering Charter and is the technical advisor for many outdoor providers in the country, including TYF in Pembrokeshire where commercial coasteering originates.

Annette manages all the bookings and activities to make sure all this expertise is put to best use!

 

Why Choose Lizard Adventure?

Craggy cliffs and sheltered coves; crashing waves and wide sandy beaches – escape the crowds and experience the wild and secluded parts of Cornwall.

 

We aim to provide an experience rather than an activity, which is why many customers return year after year. Choosing Lizard Adventure guarantees you a high quality adventure which increases your awareness of the natural environment and has limited impact on it.

We work very closely with the National Trust and use many of their sites. We have strong links with other organisations including Surfers Against Sewage, RSPB, Cornwall Seal Group and the local communities.
