Q&A sessions with your SwimTrek coaches
Whether you are preparing for an upcoming 10km swim race, a marathon swim event somewhere in the world, or simply want to challenge yourself, this open water swim coaching camp is the ideal way to ensure that both your body and your mind are prepared for the challenges that you’ll face as you push yourself to 10km and beyond.
With a team of experienced marathon swimmers to support you throughout the camp, this six days of open water coaching includes video analysis of your swim technique, as well as key coaching points to improve your overall performance in the water. Q&A sessions with your SwimTrek coaches give you a fantastic opportunity to discuss your progress and focus on future training needs.
After building up the swim distances over the first few days, you will have the chance to complete a full 10km swim to truly gauge the improvement that you’ve made throughout your time in the water.
Our accommodation in the town of Porto Petro overlooks the marina and is close to swim locations, which helps to optimise the mix of coaching and relaxation time throughout your trip.

Another excellent well planned trip which I enjoyed and learnt from as well as improving my swimming and being in a nice location.Marcus H, UK - 2019
All coaches were out of this world. So humbling to meet them and work with them. They made the trip outstanding every day.Amanda J, Ethiopia - 2019
I have been saving up and training for this trip for eight months. I went out with a mission to make myself proud and came back not only with a huge sense of achievement for my swim but lifelong friends and a huge sense of gratitude for the kindness and support offered by the coaches. Travelling on your own can be quite intimidating as a fiftysomething lady. All of my fears were allayed by a hugely warm welcome and a bunch of gorgeous people from all over the world with a shared interest and common goal. I would leap at the chance of going on another SwimTrek holiday. Since I have been back in the UK I have been sea swimming every day in the cold sea and bossed the waves with a hugely increased sense of capability and confidence in my own ability.Amanda B, UK -2019
A fantastic few days that really focus on swimming 10k and cover all aspects. The guides are knowledgeable, experienced and supportive, but great fun too. The credit to the guides is everyone on my trip successfully completed the 10k swim and the atmosphere was euphoric.Sandra J, UK - 2019
Fantastic trip, it was a really tough challenge but support and encouragement from the guides and my fellow swimmers was brilliant and I left with a new perspective on what I'm capable of and a real sense of achievementAlexia, C. UK-2018
