One of the best things about Ibiza is the many stunning open water swims we can do. We offer both open water swim training and accompanied open water swims in the beautiful turquoise waters of the Mediterranean sea. Whether you are just starting your journey with open water swimming, would like to improve your confidence and experience in open water (it’s very different to swimming in a pool!) or you are looking to train for some open water swims it would be our pleasure to swim with you.
The Med provides a safe open water swim environment with few strong currents (which we avoid) although we do sometimes have to be careful of jellyfish – if the situation is bad we will re-schedule the swim. And we plan our open water swims so that they are safe. You need to be able to swim a minimum of 1000m (40 lengths of a 25m pool) continuously in order to come out with us. We will swim along the shore, unless we have boat accompaniment.
We partner with Tom’s company Open Ocean Swimming offering swim training and technique work in the sea as well as open water swim tours of Ibiza. At the moment these are only on request but we have plans to set dates for open water swim tours for the near future.
We will be running a long-weekend open water swim holiday in September – dates to be confirmed – if you’re interested let us know and we’ll keep you posted.
