Swimming in fresh water surrounded by mountains is something you need to experience to really appreciate. Every Saturday and Sunday morning we run supported swimming sessions in Llyn Padarn. A safety kayaker or paddle boarder supervises the sessions and will be on hand to help out if needed.

Each session will be tailored to the level of the group members and the conditions on the day. Our usual sessions will include a range of swimmers abilities that range from 300 mtrs to over 2km.

Times 0900 to 1000

Cost - £5 per person

Wetsuit hire - £5 per person

Minimum participant age - 12 years old

From spring to September we run a range of evening supported swimming sessions. These take place at locations other than Llyn Padarn, (unless the weather forces us to seek shelter). The venues will change each session and can range from coastal swims around the North Wales coastline, or the Menai Straits or maybe a remote mountain lake. We will notify swimmers of the exact venue 24 hours before the session takes place. They are a great way to socialise and keep fit as well as a great excuse to get in the water at some spectacular locations. During the session you will be supported in the water by safety kayaker or paddle boarder.

They are there to guide you along and offer any assistance if required.

You can book a session using the Book Now button at the bottom of this page.

Running from April to September these sessions take place at different locations including inland lakes and rivers as well as coastal and estuary venues.

Please make sure the contact details entered on the booking form are correct..

The activity is aimed at people who are looking for a social paddling experience rather than a formal coaching session. If you are a paddler who feels like getting away from your regular venue while being in a group of likeminded people then why not book on? You can use the book now button at the bottom of the page.
