Swim Special - Port Quin to Lundy Bay

Port Quin
swim - Up to 5 people

Description

2.8km one-way swim from Port Quin to Lundy. Swimming out of the historic natural harbour of Port Quin we turn left after exiting the mouth and head in the direction of Lundy Bay. We'll swim past sea caves and over shipwrecks before landing upon a secluded beach. If conditions allow we'll swim into caves and blowholes before doubling back a short way and exiting the water at the rocky cove of Epphaven. From here it's a gentle (just 1 hill) 1 mile walk back to Port Quin via the coastpath, which is just as scenic as the swim. On our return it's cake, hot drinks and basking in the glory of your completed swim adventure, before the masses have even had their breakfast.


This route can be exposed. You should be confident that you can complete the distance and have a high level of comfort in the sea.


What are the swim specials all about?

Experience the beauty of the Cornish coastline from the water, swimming between sheltered, secluded, coves and staring up at majestic cliffs. Our Swim specials are designed to cater for those swimmers wanting to explore beyond the confines of the bays and experience swimming sections of otherwise inaccessible coastline with other like-minded swimmers. We seek to provide an opportunity for swimmers to complete point A to point B swims or iconic loops in the North Cornwall area.


Etiquette

This is very much a social swim, nobody gets left behind and we'll take regular breaks to re-group, chat and take in the stunning scenery. You can expect to swim between 2-3 km so a certain level of swimming is required (see physical requirements).


Safety

All of our guided swims will begin with a discussion about conditions, safety and route options. Followed by a short acclimatisation, and then we'll be on our way. You will be led by a qualified open water coach(es) and lifeguard(s) who will paddle alongside you, providing support, encouragement, navigation an will carry anything you may need during the swim.


Not for you?

If this sounds like too much or too little, or perhaps you want to swim supported for a particular distance /time or pace, then perhaps you should consider booking a private/1:1 session with us - see private guided swim adventure for more details.
