If you are looking to make the transition from pool swimming to swimming outdoors, this introduction to open water swimming coaching camp is the perfect way to do it. Under the expert guidance of our qualified swim coaches, you will have the opportunity to discover the joys that come with taking part in a swimming adventure in the great outdoors.

Based in the scenic seaside town of Colonia de Sant Jordi, our coaches will work with you in a purpose-built 50-metre training pool at the world-class Best Swim Centre, using in-depth video analysis to help you improve your swim technique and open water swimming skills. You will have the chance to take part in open water swim coaching in the many local bays to familiarise yourself with the conditions and skills that you’ve learnt, before graduating to a boat-escorted swim crossing to an island reef in Es Carbo Bay.

To make sure you thoroughly enjoy the transition from pool to the open water, our qualified swim coaches run one-to-one and group sessions. Combining these sessions with a healthy dose of encouragement, patience and, most importantly, fun, your time with us is sure to be an incredible stage in your journey to becoming a true open water swimmer.
