Guided Swim Adventure

swim - Up to 8 people



Our guided swim adventures are designed to cater for those swimmers wanting to explore beyond the confines of the bays and experience swimming sections of otherwise inaccessible coastline. Sea swimming in North Cornwall is exhilarating, awe inspiring and always an adventure, no two days are the same beneath the cliffs.

Who is it for?

Private groups or 1:1. Being completely bespoke, it doesn’t matter whether you are new to open water swimming or an experienced athlete training for an event. 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. New for 2022 - We are also offering guided SwimRun/walk's for those wanting to experience something new or train for an event. Get in touch for more details.


You will be accompanied by a qualified beach lifeguard and open water swim coach with over a decade of experience in planning and facilitating water based activities along the north Cornwall coastline. The coach will swim or paddle alongside you, providing support, encouragement, navigation and will carry anything you may need during the swim.


Our base is on Port Gaverne beach but we make use of a number of other stunning venues in the local area such as, Daymer Bay, New Polzeath, Lundy Bay & Port Quin. We can also arrange swims on the South Coast between Looe and The Roseland. 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.

Pricing for groups

Private group bookings of up to 8 people 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.
