Open Water Swimming

Have you ever fancied trying open water swimming or are you training for a triathalon and would like to get some extra training in, well.............Welton Waters Adventure Centre could be just what your looking for, open water swimming facilities available all year round in the sheltered waters of our lagoon. 400m & 700mm laps marked.

Open Water Swimming has a very different feel to pool swimming, there's no tiles, no lanes, no chlorine and no fixed temperature. This all gives a much freer natural swimming experience. Whether you want to just swim during the warmer summer months, you want to test your endurance and continue thoughout the year or you're training for a triathalon, the choice is yours here at WWAC.

We prefer you to have buddy with you who can be either in the water or just watching you from the bank, if you don't have anyone with you need to be using a tow-float. You must be wearing a bright swim cap at all times (either pink, orange or yellow). If you're swimming during the colder months and the water is below 10º you MUST have a buddy in the water with you.

Wetsuits not required but if you are wanting to swim in skins (no wetsuit) once the water temperature has droped below 15º  you must have been signed off by our Open Water Swim Coach

Summer price £5pp

Winter price (from 1st November until water temperature returns to double figures) £2pp

Also 1:1 lessons available with our Open Water Level 2 Swim Coach - £20/hr
