Open Water Swimming Adventures

The North Pembrokeshire Peninsular is located in the middle of the UK’s only coastal National Park and is surrounded by clear blue water and a coast line that boasts high spectacular cliffs broken by the numerous hidden and isolated  coves and beaches all of which is situated between the many picture postcard fishing villages and harbours that make up the communities and way of life for the local residents.

All of this makes the location ideal for an open water adventure and a pure swimming experience that will stay with you for a long time.

Yes open water swimming can be dangerous activity to do by our self or to under take in an area you do not know as currents, tides, fatigue, orientation and weather can all cause serious problems for those who fall foul that is why we are offering guided tours that will allow you to have the ultimate swimming adventure in the safest possible environment.

The areas we use range from Abercastle on the Northern coast line to mid Pembrokeshires St Brides Bay and everything in between. We utilise the best area to suit the weather and groups needs

Brilliant! Fintan put together a package that was absolutely perfect for me and I came away thrilled to have swum in beautiful locations and pushed my boundaries. Without the support and local knowledge it would never have been possible. One of the best experiences I’ve had in ages and I can’t recommend highly enough.
