With bright blue skies, crystal clear waters and a climate that is the envy of the world, a swimming holiday is the perfect way to experience the Caribbean’s stunning British Virgin Islands. From the picturesque island landscapes to the breathtaking underwater vistas, this trip is filled with spectacular scenery to explore and discover.
Including underwater reefs, white-sand coastlines and fascinating marine life, this trip also features some of our most challenging conditions and longest daily distances. You’ll even have the opportunity to swim all the way from Britain to America. It may only be a 3-kilometre stretch between the British Virgin Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands, but we promise we won't tell!
With accommodation at the simple and laid-back Leverick Bay Resort, located just a few metres from the water’s edge, this is sure to be a Caribbean swimming tour that you’ll never forget.
This trip is made up of multiple crossings and some coastal swims. A good experience of swimming in all sea conditions is essential, as conditions can be challenging, yet very rewarding.
Holiday of a lifetime. The mental relaxation was just what I needed. Everything was planned for us, all I have to do was swim and enjoy the beautiful marine life.
It only took one Swim Trek holiday to get me hooked. I had very little open water swimming experience when starting the trip but the guides and boat crew offered exceptional advice and support. At all times, I knew someone was watching over me for my safety. All staff members created a welcoming, fun, and energetic atmosphere. By far one of the best vacations I have ever been on!
Absolutely wonderful holiday for me and I am a real beginner.....although swimming with turtles was so special, what really made it for me was the outstanding professionalism, knowledge and care of both guides to ensure my safety and enjoyment. Marvellous experience and I would highly recommend to anyone.
My Swim Trek in the BVIs was exceptional; in fact, it exceeded my high expectations. The swimming was exquisite. The guides and boat operators were total pros. And my fellow swimmers are all new friends for life!
BVI was the perfect location for a swimming holiday. Great mixture of crossings and coastal swims and perfect water and air temperatures!
So pleased I had the opportunity to swim with a wild dolphin
A bucket list trip for sure!
Incredible vacation. Great mix of long swims in the morning and "aquarium" swims in the afternoon
I've been wanting to do a SwimTrek trip for 13 years and the wait was well worth it. The BVI trip blew me away--the water, the underwater sealife that we swam over, the guides hospitality and skill, the food, everything. Magic!
