This trip is designed to suit the swimmer or triathlete who can swim up to 2 km in a pool and wants to make the transition to swimming confidently in the open water with a focus on both technique and stamina. Whether you are relatively new to pool swimming or have been following the black line for years, this trip will provide you with the skills and reassurance that you need to make the move into the sea with confidence.

The team and the group were so supportive. Never thought I could ever do 3km so easily. Thank you.
I approached the trip with some trepidation having minimal experience in open water. I needn't have been worried. With the fantastic guides, supportive group and beautifully clear water, the distances ceased to matter. I'm can't wait for my next trip!
Totally amazing exceeded all my expectations. Only problem is how do I go back to swimming in the local pool? Thank You!
Magic!!! I have no other way to explain what happened this week. magic!!! I have no other way to explain what happened this week.
If you are thinking of swimming in open water you couldn't be in better hands than with SwimTrek.
The trip exceeded my expectations by far. It was an empowering, fun and relaxing experience although we worked hard on technique and distances. I must say, I became somewhat addicted to open water swimming and seem to have found not only a new challenge, but a new passion as well!
New experiences, new friends and a much better swimmer by the end of the holiday.
