Combining these sessions with a healthy dose of encouragement, patience and, most importantly, fun, your time with us is sure to be an incredible stage in your journey to becoming a true open water swimmer.
Who is this camp for?
This camp is designed to suit swimmers who can comfortably swim at least 500m in a pool and want to make the transition to swimming in the open water with a focus on swim technique, open water swim skills and endurance. Whether you are relatively new to pool swimming or have been following the black line for years, this coaching camp will provide you with the skills and reassurance that you need to make the move into the sea with confidence.
If you’ve already got some open water experience but would like to develop your technique, work on open water skills or build your endurance, you may like to consider our Open Water Development - Mallorca coaching camp which also runs out of Colonia de Sant Jordi.

Coaching Camp Schedule
Just returned from the beginners open water trip in Majorca. The location and swims were beautiful. As a “weaker” swimmer I can't thank our guides Alex and Mike enough. Their patience and safety knowledge enabled me to swim in the sea as I have never done before! I have returned home and I feel landlocked! Italy next year!Corinne R, UK - 2019
This trip exceeded my expectations, its perfect for solo travellers. It was great!Penny J, UK - 2019
I would definitely recommend the Mallorca trip as a way to gain confidence in open water. Being able to use the lovely nearby ‘best’ swimming pool was great. The trip taught me that I can swim further than I thought!Barbara S, UK - 2019

I had a wonderful time. Challenging at times but always safe and very satisfying. It was great to swim with a group of like minded spirits.Robert B, UK - 2019
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
