With bright blue skies, crystal clear waters and an irresistible tropical climate, 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. SwimTrek is thrilled to be running swimming holidays in the British Virgin Islands once again.
As one of our more challenging swimming destinations, on this trip guests will be able to enjoy the underwater reefs, white-sand coastlines and fascinating marine life, alongside taking on stronger open sea conditions and longer daily swim distances. There is also the opportunity to swim from ‘Britain’ to ‘America’ as we take on the challenge of swimming between the US and British Virgin Islands. With just a 3-kilometre stretch between the two territories, here lies a great chance to complete a manageable intercountry swim.
With accommodation at the laid-back, vibrantly painted Leverick Bay Resort, located just a few metres from the water’s edge, you’ll enjoy beauty whether you’re out swimming in the warm Caribbean Sea or relaxing in our charming accommodation. This is sure to be a Caribbean swimming tour that you’ll never forget!
Who is this trip for?
This trip is an ideal option for those looking for a more remote Caribbean swimming holiday. The island-hopping swim itinerary is made up of multiple crossings as well as some coastal swims. Experience of swimming in all sea conditions is essential, as conditions can be challenging, yet very rewarding. Swimmers should have a strong knowledge of open water swimming and be capable of completing the average daily swim distance of 6km (split over a minimum of two swims) prior to the start of the trip.

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.Charlie, K. UK-2017
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!Colleen, A.

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.Linda, S. UK-2017
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!Heather. Y, CAN- 2017

Incredible vacation. Great mix of long swims in the morning and "aquarium" swims in the afternoonKathy C. USA-2017
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!Tatyana S. USA- 2017
