Swimming Activities » Swim Walking
If you want to get closer to nature and learn more about the local marine life of the Welsh coast and get fit at the same time the what better way than to walk and swim? You cannot be much more immersed than walking and swimming around the stunning coastline of Pembrokeshire!
If this sounds interesting then why not join one of our swim walking tours?
Swim Walking is as it says:
You walk for a bit, then you swim, then walk, then swim, and so on!
You carry your kit with you, on land and in water.
Usually we start at point A and go along the coast to point B, however it is possible to do circular routes so we start and finish at the same location.
Distances depend on how far you want to go and range from just a few km combined walking and swimming, to full day trips of 20+km.
Options include walking and swimming from point A to point B along the coast. Or we can do circular routes to start and end at the same location.
Distances depend on your requirements and can range from a couple of hours duration of about 5km to full day trips of 20+km.
After a brief chat to find out what sort of stuff you will see, and after an assessment of your swimming level, we will suggest some sites and take you out on a nature trail with a difference!
Light refreshments are optional. On the longer routes we will provide tea, fruit etc at set locations.
The walking routes vary depending on time, swimming ability and weather. Needless to say though, they are all beautiful, spectacular walking routes and take in the full splendor of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
Expect to see anything from starfish to small sharks known as dogfish.
You may get to see a seal when they're around (normally late August to October), you may even see a dolphin.
Here we came across a cheeky spider crab walking along the bottom of Broadhaven South Bay at about 3 metres depth.
And there are always the obligatory barrel jellyfish, once you get used to them they are actually amazing creatures.
You will also get to see a lot of sea birds as you will be walking and swimming the whole way. For example, gulls, cormorants, gannets, razorbills.
Obviously we cannot guarantee that animals will be in a certain place at a certain time but we will stop and point out wildlife when we see it.
Of course, we have a pretty good idea of the best places to see certain wildlife and coastal scenery but if you have a specific preference in mind then we will tailor our tours to your needs and swimming ability.
