Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series returns to Pembrokeshire

Crowds at the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Championships

Extreme athletes from across the globe will take the plunge in Pembrokeshire this September as the National Trust welcomes the return of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series.

Abereiddi’s iconic Blue Lagoon, which was the first British site to host the series in 2012 and again in 2013, will stage one of the nine legs of the world’s biggest cliff diving competition on 10 and 11 September 2016.

Our dramatic coastal location will challenge the elite of cliff diving as competitors leap from platforms suspended 20 to 27 metres above the water to impress the judges.

In a British first for the competition, Abereiddi will play host to both the men’s and women’s rounds, with reigning world champions Gary Hunt and Rachelle Simpson looking to defend their titles.

The Blue Lagoon is the sixth stop of the series, with the professional divers also visiting Texas (USA), Copenhagen (Denmark), Azores (Portugal), La Rochelle (France), Polignano a Mare (Italy), Mostar (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Sandanbeki (Japan) and Dubai (UAE).

How do I get tickets?

Spectator tickets for the event are now sold out. For further information on the event schedule and divers taking part, please visit the Red Bull website.

Access to the Blue Lagoon

Please note Red Bull may need to temporarily restrict access to the Blue Lagoon for safety reasons whilst preparing the site, so please follow any on-site guidance. Access into the lagoon during the event days is limited to ticket holders only, but the Pembrokeshire Coast Path remains open throughout the event.

" A spectacular sport like this deserves a spectacular setting and we’re proud that the Blue Lagoon, Abereiddi has been chosen again to host this world-class event. We know that Red Bull will take great care with this special place and provide a hugely enjoyable experience for many visitors. We’re delighted to welcome them back."
