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.

Not at all! The Half-Day Explorer is tailored for beginners. You’ll be guided by experienced instructors who’ll provide a safety briefing and ensure you’re comfortable in the water. The session is paced to your comfort level, and you’ll be in a small group, ensuring personal attention and support. However, it is important that you are a confident swimmer, for your own safety, but this doesn’t mean you need prior open water 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.

Identifying a good wild swimming spot involves considering several factors, such as water quality, access, safety, and environmental impact. During the Half-Day Explorer session, you’ll gain insights into what makes a swimming spot ideal and learn to spot these characteristics yourself. This valuable knowledge will enhance your wild swimming adventures long after the session ends. 

For this session, your instructor will pick out the spots based on your preferences and the other factors listed.
