Newquay’s Pirate’s Quest has had a swashbuckling start to the season after a busy February Half Term.

The buccaneering attraction has also qualified with flying colours to become a member of the Cornwall Association of Tourist Attractions (CATA) following a rigorous inspection programme.

CATA has rated Pirate’s Quest ‘Excellent’ in terms of content, customer service and value for money, with an overall ‘Very Good’ rating across all the attraction site.

‘We are thrilled to have Pirates Quest join our 40 other Cornish visitor attractions as a part of CATA. We are looking forward to working with the team to offer visitors to attractions unique days out across Cornwall. I know the team have been working really hard to provide their visitors with a quality experience and wish them much success in the upcoming season!’ Emma Abbot, Chair of the Cornwall Association of Tourist Attractions.

Since opening in 2015, Pirate’s Quest has gone from strength to strength, regularly topping the charts for Trip Advisor’s Top 10 Things to Do in Newquay and expanding their experience-led tours to include Language Tours, School Workshops, Birthday Parties and Scare Night Events.

Nikki Smith, Managing Director said: “We are so pleased to have become members of CATA. The association is an assurance for visitors to the quality of the experience and is a great recognition of the hard work the team at Pirate’s Quest have put in.”
