Burgh Island Swim-Venture


This iconic swim is leisurely, taking up to around an hour to complete the 1 mile distance, allowing swimmers the time to enjoy, explore, learn about and experience some of the UK's most spectacular coastline.

Get up close and personal to this stunning island, explore caves and cracks, enjoy often pristine waters, and get lost in its beauty. Definitely a bucket list swim for all open water and wild swimming enthusiasts.

These swims are led and overlooked by qualified, local, knowledgeable swim guides and beach lifeguards.

Want a private, individual or group swim or have a specific date in mind- please contact us direct.

What to bring

-Wetsuit, googles,... what ever you need to be comfortable in the water for about 1 to 1.5hour, all equipment is to be suitable for a swim at this time of year

-If you wish to swim without a wetsuit this is ok by us, as long as you are used to it. Bear in mind this is a leisurely, exploratory swim, at times swimming in and around rocks and as such we always would recommend a wetsuit for your comfort.

-Warm clothing for post swim.


Being able to swim 1km in open water confidently.
