The Blowhole at Porth Island
This is a very special route and the most fickle! We only take groups here when there is little or no swell, as the highlight is going through the Island’s famous Blowhole. We usually start at Lusty Glaze beach then, swimming out from the beach, we head around the point and through a cave called “Crab Alley” (Don’t worry, we have never actually seen a crab there).
As we come out of Crab Alley cave we see the Island in front of us. A small jump and then a swim takes us to the caves on the island itself. We work our way along until we get to a large crack in the rocks where we pass into the Blowhole and through the blow hole chamber itself before swimming out into the sunlight at the front of the cave. It’s a truly breathtaking experience.
We finish off with a range of jumps from small and fun up to large and extra large (if you fancy it). Porth Island is a stunning route – when it’s on.
