Frequently Asked Questions

Wild swimming is swimming in natural bodies of water such as rivers, lakes, and oceans, as opposed to swimming in man-made pools. It emphasises the experience of swimming in a natural, often outdoor environment, and is often appreciated for its connection to nature, sense of freedom, and the different sensory experience compared to pool swimming. Wild swimming has grown in popularity as a way to enjoy the outdoors, exercise, and experience the mental and emotional benefits of being in natural surroundings.

Basic swimming skills – confidently swimming 50m – are required for your safety and enjoyment of the session. However, you don’t need any prior experience in open water or wild swimming. Our session is tailored to help beginners feel comfortable and safe while swimming in natural environments.

Your safety is our top priority. Each session begins with a comprehensive safety briefing covering the do’s and don’ts of wild swimming. Our experienced instructors are well-versed in water safety and first aid, and they will be with you throughout the session to provide guidance and assistance. Additionally, we carefully select swimming locations based on current weather conditions and participant abilities to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

Please come prepared with your swimwear, a towel. If you have a wetsuit, it’s recommended for additional warmth, but not compulsory. Don’t forget a change of dry clothes for after your swim, and a waterproof bag can be handy to keep your belongings dry. Some of the walks to the start of the swim are uneven and wearing appropriate walking shoes is advised.
