Open Water

Ever wanted to swim in open water? Do you swim open water already but want to improve? We can help you whatever level you’re with regards to your open water experience.


New date for 2019 - Introduction to Open Water Swimming Course - May 19th 2019

We loved running the course so much that we are running another in 2019. 

We want to encourage more people into the open water so we’ve organised a training session with LoveSwimRun to give you the chance to come along and get some coaching on specific skills and techniques for open water swimming.

Llyn Padarn, in Llanberis, is the ideal venue for an introduction to swimming in open water, providing clear, safe and sheltered water in a beautiful location. We’ll be using Snowdonia Watersports as our base for the day.

Group sessions are ideal for people who would like to come down as a club or just as a group of friends.

We have now teamed up with Total Swim Training at their new open water swim venue at Fourways Quarry, Oakmere to offer our open water swim coaching services at this great location. Keep an eye out on our Facebook and Twitter pages for when we will be there coaching. More information can be found at the following website:

We offer private one to one sessions or group sessions that are tailored for your needs. Private one to one sessions are ideal if you’re a nervy beginner, who wants help overcoming natural fears about swimming in open water. We can help to build up your confidence so that you can fully enjoy the many joys of swimming in open water. In these sessions, we can either be in the water with you, or right next to your side in a canoe.
