I was really worried whether I would be able to do this. After the first swim with the guides, I could relax as they were so supportive and knowledgeable. My fellow swimmers were all fabulous too!Anne P, UK - 2018
I loved every minute of this trip! I feel completely encouraged, empowered and motivated to continue swimming in the sea, open water and the pool as well.Mariel Z, The Netherlands - 2018

I would recommend this trip to anyone interested in open swimming. It was challenging and tiring but fantastic fun and a trip I will remember forever.Maddy A, UK - 2018
The trip has made me far more confident in the water. Excellent tuition for improving technique - "longer for longer". It was such a pleasure being able to swim distances I thought were impossible. Thank you!Jane M, UK - 2018
The team and the group were so supportive. Never thought I could ever do 3km so easily. Thank you.Patricia J, France - 2017
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!Heather W, UK - 2017
Totally amazing exceeded all my expectations. Only problem is how do I go back to swimming in the local pool? Thank You!Jenny A, UK - 2017
