🏊 Impressions from our Sea Swimming Lessons for Adults

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Our goal is to provide you with a proper swimming lesson in the sea. It also means 30+ minutes in the water. We believe that it is imperative for you to develop confidence and learn the essential swimming skills in order to be able to fully enjoy the open water. These skills include breath control, body positioning, timing, and many others. In May, the Irish Sea is a bit warmer, so our sessions will be more enjoyable.

Currently our Open Water Swimming lessons will be held at the following locations: Seapoint Beach, Co.Dublin, Killiney Beach, Co.Dublin, Contarf Baths, Co.Dublin. Please check event description for meeting points.

First things first: You should be able to float and tread water. If you are unsure of which event to attend, we recommend registering for one of our beginner sessions. We are delighted to welcome you and determine which level is appropriate for you. Alternatively, you can use our contact form or Whatsapp us. Let’s talk.

Many people have this fear when they are swimming in the open sea, and we are here to help you overcome it. A great way is to learn how to swim and practice in a pool before venturing into the sea.

Sessions usually last 45 minutes.

All of our swimming sessions take place in a safe and supportive environment. In order to provide a realistic swimming experience, we place our own buoys in the water.

A Wetsuits (of any type), silicone swim hats, goggles, and a swim tow float. During the month of May, we strongly recommend wearing a wetsuit. If you’re used to swimming without a wetsuit all year round, you’ll be fine.

In the unlikely event we have to cancel due to bad weather, we’ll offer an alternative date.

We accept payments by Credit Card and Debit Card. Payments can be made on the spot in certain situations and only following a consultation.

All payments run through Stripe, so you don’t have to worry. We accept all major Credit Cards and Debit Cards. If there is an issue with the payment, please contact us and we are happy to find a solution with you.

All payments are non-refundable. Unused camp fees may be applied to a future camp within one year of purchase date. In the unlikely event Swim Camp cancels a clinic session, a new date will be provided. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide refunds for no shows.
