Private Guided or coached Swim

swim - Up to 8 people


Our private swims are designed to cater for those swimmers wanting to explore beyond the confines of the bays and experience swimming sections of otherwise inaccessible coastline. These swims are for private groups of up to 7 people or 1:1 and are designed to be tailor made to your needs.

Private group bookings benefit from large discounts. The cost is £50 for the 1st person and £25 for each subsequent member of the group. So there is an added incentive to bringing along a friend or family member.

They are completely bespoke, and it doesn’t matter whether you are new to open water swimming or an experienced athlete training for an event. As such, distances and pace can be whatever you desire and we will plan the route to suit your individual needs. They can be purely guided, purely coached, or a mixture of both.

Our base is on Port Gaverne beach but we make use of a number of other stunning venues in thew local area such as, Daymer Bay, New Polzeath, Lundy Bay & Port Quin. With the private swims we can book a time and decide on the best venue for the days conditions or, alternatively, if you want to set your own challenge or have a desire to swim a particular section of the nearby coastline then we can plan this with you and wait for the right conditions.

We can run additional swims to those advertised in the calendar so if the time/date doesn't suit you please get in touch by phone or email to discuss alternative timings.

What to bring

It is compulsory that all swimmers wear the following:

  1. A brightly coloured swim hat.
  2. Goggles.

We recommend that swimmers wear a wetsuit (ideally swim specific) but swimming without can be catered for if experienced in doing so and wearing a tow float.


  1. Can swim 100m front crawl unaided.
  2. Competent pool swimmer.
  3. Can walk up to 1 mile on uneven terrain (some venues are a little more remote and require a short walk down to the sea).


Rigid: Guaranteed full refund if cancelling 5 days prior.

You will be entitled to a full refund under the following circumstances:

  • If your booking is under £200 and you cancelled at least a full 72h prior to the activity start time.
  • If your booking is over £200 and you cancelled at least a full 5 days prior to the activity start time.
  • If the centre cancels the activity at any time.

If the conditions on the day aren’t ideal but the activity still takes place, you will not be eligible for a refund.
