About Us

Set up in 2013 by a group of passionate locals.

Our mission:
Working together for a common interest: To enjoy, share, promote, protect and learn about Newquay’s amazing marine environment and the incredible life that shares our shores.
Our Objectives:
  1. To celebrate and protect the marine environment of Newquay
  2. To engage the public about the amazing coastline
  3. To work with other groups
  4. To influence and be a voice for the marine environment
  5. To be a group for everyone and to be all inclusive

We work with a huge variety of other businesses, charities and organisations who have the same passion as us – to shout about the incredible marine environment we have here in Newquay. We thank them all for their ongoing support.

With the help of membership, local fundraising and generous donations, Newquay Marine Group has been busy with projects, campaigns, surveys, events and activities all about the amazing coastline we have on our doorstep.


We are grateful to our volunteers who work with us whatever the weather! Do you love the sea? Do you use the Coast? Do you want to help keep it at its best and protect it for the future? If so find out how you can Get involved
