Cliff Jumping


CLIFF JUMPING

Cliff jumping is jumping off a cliff into water for a thrilling experience. It was made famous in 1970 when the Cadbury’s Milk Tray Man dived off a cliff to deliver the chocolates to his lady together with the card “All because the lady loves Milk Tray”!

In 2015, the BBC recreated the advert at Dosthill Quarry off the 40 feet cliff. The advert was then featured on the One Show.

Now you can experience an adrenalin rush from the 10 feet platform and land in the same lake where the new Milk Tray ad was created.

Cliff jumping is part of the group of exciting sports which include tombstoning, coasteering, and BASE jumping. Tuition on the correct techniques for launching and entering the water correctly is an essential part of the preparation for each jump.

Our techniques have been tried and tested many times. Your instructor will fit you in a shortie wetsuit, and show you how to safely jump off our 10 feet cliff, in a no pressure environment, and land in the lake.

A 10 feet course & jump normally costs £35, but we regularly have 2-for-1 offers! email ian@dosthillquarry.com or telephone Dive In Ltd on 01733 351288 (any day from 8am – 4.30pm) for more info.
