Guernsey Swim Adventures invite you to join us on a swim adventure weekend filled with stunning landscapes, wildlife and history. Prepare to make memories that will last a lifetime. Your adventures will take in the very best of Guernsey plus a visit to either Sark or Herm, two enchanting islands of the Bailiwick. Four swims across three days ranging from1.5km exploring swims to 3km coastal discoveries.
Guernsey, and the neighbouring Islands, offer a huge variety of swim opportunities, from the golden sands of Shell Beach in Herm to the majestic Pea Stacks, famously captured by Renaissance painter PierreAuguste Renoir and best viewed from Moulin Huet Bay. Wherever you swim you will be surrounded by amazing scenery. You may even be accompanied by curious seals on coastal swims and sightings of dolphins are common on crossings between the islands. Guernsey’s tidal range is one of the largest in the world, transforming the coastline every six hours or so making every experience unique.
Jacqueline & Jennifer, your swim guides, have many years of experience and will show you hidden bays, historic forts and options of archways, gullies and caves. With their extensive knowledge they will choose the best bay for the day, taking into consideration the tides and weather conditions.
