Our open water swim course is a 400m loop and is ideal for experienced open water swimmers and beginners alike. The course is laid out to be no further than 10m - 15m away from the edge at any point and is patrolled by our RLSS Open Water qualified Lifeguards. The water is crystal clear and only 3m deep at its deepest point so is one of the safest open water swim venues in the country.
