Open Water Swimming

Open water is the perfect way to take your swimming into a new dimension.

With 70% of the world covered by water, and recently added as an Olympic sport, ever greater numbers of swimmers are venturing into open water swimming.

With a team of over 20 years of experience in coaching, swimming, lifesaving and surfing we not only understand the skills involved in open water swimming but also share the passion for this sport.

We've been introducing pool swimmers into this fascinating sport for over a decade, picking our venues carefully and providing the opportunity to experienced swimmers to develop their skills in a safe environment.

Our specially selected venues vary between salt or fresh water, calm or rough, warmer or less warm, still or with currents; depending on the time of day, the season and the location. Each venue presents a different challenge to the open water swimmer.

Our dedicated team will help you:

  • Improve your swimming technique;
  • Learn how to 'filter' the most difficult waves and use them to your advantage;
  • Learn how to deal with currents;
  • Tips and tactics for competitors; and
  • 'Sighting' (seeing) while swimming so you can visually get your bearings

For experienced pool swimmers open water swimming can be a wonderful activity and a chance to get out and simply enjoy your surroundings while doing your favourite sport.

Stretching out your stroke and getting into the rhythm along the movement of the currents is a thrilling experience that we believe is hard to achieve when surrounded by the limits of the swimming pool.

Hope you can join us soon!
