SwimTrek Miles


Simon founded SwimTrek, after spending many years organising open water swimming trips for himself and others. Originally from Australia, Simon lives in the UK and prior to SwimTrek, was working overseas in the mining industry. A solo English Channel Swimmer and swim coach, Simon still guides on some of the tours himself. Continuing his swimming adventures around the world, in 2009 Simon swam across the River Volta in Ghana and broke the Australian record for swimming across the Gibraltar Straits; in 2010 he swam to the Isle of White. He spends a lot of his time now scouting for new SwimTrek locations.

Simon has been a guide on 34 previous trips
