We offer three types of swimming holidays geared towards the “water babies”, “the explorers”, the “swimmers” and the ” wild dippers”.
Our small group tours (maximum 16 people) are the perfect balance of exploration and adventure and are designed to immerse guests in some of the most iconic swims in Devon and Cornwall. Fuelled by cake, wonderful food and good company, we’ll take you on a journey like no other – we link the most stunning sea, estuary, lake, river, lido and sea pool swims into a magical tour that you’ll remember for a lifetime.
Join one of our friendly groups, meet like-minded people and discover new and swim spots and landscapes – from the water up!

Wild Swimming is “the practice or activity of swimming for pleasure in natural waters”, and in England we are spoilt for choice! Discover the best hidden away lakes, pools, beaches, coves and rivers for a splash, swim, dip or float. Each day we’ll have 2 or 3 swims, walking to those isolated places you can only access by foot!
We’re for all swimmers, from the head-up breast-strokers to the triathletes, there’s an abundance of swimming options on all tours, each day. We’re not competitive, this trip is all about the journey and exploring some fantastic wild swimming spots in our favourite places. Finish each day in a country pub or a cosy hotel with some wonderful food and in great company.
Guided by our outstanding team, we know every beach and cove, bend in the river, lake, lagoon and sea pool. We’ve found the best beach picnic stops, local pubs, walking routes and more! You won’t need to worry about any of your luggage transfers, bookings or equipment – we’ve got that all taken care of.
