All of our swims have been explored and assessed for risk and hazards, which are documented and known by the swim guides. When everyone's ready we will get kitted up, split into your groups and review the swim plan with your swim guides. We will then enter the water and start the swim according to the swim plan. Once in we are sure you will be amazed by the clear visibility and beautiful underwater and coastal scenery.
Boat Rules and Safety
You'll see a far greater density and variety of sea life here than you can ever expect to see around more populated and accessible beaches.
The day long Cost Adventure Swims are more than just a sea swim, they are a complete sealife adventure with loads to see above and below the water. It's not uncommon here to see seals, dolphins from the boat, even whales or certain types of shark.
The swims follow the coast line of the either a nearby island or the mainland but can in some cases involve swims between islets or across bays. All you have around you is miles of open ocean! You will also get to see various other marine animals that live on the land or in the coastal zone: puffins, razorbills, crabs, seals, dogfish, jelly fish, to name a few.
Our Coastal Adventure Swims are a full day out and allow you to sample a range of swimming environments, from island bays to coastline cliff swims, to deserted beaches.
Over the course of the day we will do multiple swims moving to new locations each time. Swims will follow the same structured format and a planned route each time and your swim guide will review this with you before you get in.
If you are tired or would rather stay in the boat then of course this is OK. If at any time you wish to leave the water, then you can do so, there's plenty to see on the surface too!
After our swims we go back to the boat and get warmed up. We recommend bringing coats you can put on over your wetsuit to get warm as quickly as possible. A DryRobe is great for this. Check out this link for more info.
We will have hot drinks and snacks on the boat and chat about all the awesome stuff we just saw! You can bring your own packed lunches of course. It goes without saying, please dispose of rubbish responsibly.
Breaks are normally 45-60 minutes and when everyone is ready we will move the boat to a new location, depending on the weather and sea conditions. Once we're ready, off we go again!
Meeting location will be Neyland Marina. Post code for this location if you are using a GPS is SA711PY.
A pickup service can be provided if you have booked this with your booking.
It is critical that we adhere to the right tide times for your own safety and enjoyment.
Prior to the adventure you will be emailed with the departure time. It is your responsibility to check this before the event date.
The boat will not be able to wait for you if you are late. If you miss the boat, we are not able to refund your money.
The one thing we have absolutely no control over is the great British weather!
The British weather is notoriously unpredictable, especially in at sea; it can be foggy one minute, brilliant sunshine the next; and the other way round: you may start the day in glorious sunshine and end in a howling gale.
For us, this is just part of the adventure and being well prepared can help minimise the downside of a bad weather turn, but it is important to understand this is not something we can control.
Your safety and comfort is our concern, so if the weather is deemed to be too poor to reach the destinations and have an enjoyable experience doing so, we have contingency sites that we can go to instead.
However, even though these packages run in the summer/autumn months, we recommend preparing for weather extremes!
