Organiser's Description

Friday 27th September 2024
Cost: (per person): 
£60.00 (Non-refundable once booked) Under 16's also welcome if confident in open water
We’re offering interested swimmers the opportunity to swim ONE MILE alongside a professional guide boat in this lovely place. Receive some fabulous pics and videos of your swim and top swim tips (if requested) from Dave and Karen themselves.
Solo, pairs, small groups, wetsuits, skins, breastroke, frontcrawl. The guided swims pick-up from the shore at Ullswater Steamers car park and will then take you for your scenic mile swim. Please note courses can change depending on wind direction.
You don’t have to be an expert swimmer to join up just someone who enjoys a challenge. You will, however, have swum similar distances in open water and have developed the necessary cold-water tolerance (10-15 degrees) for the duration of the swim. We delegate one hour for the one mile to be completed, so if you anticipate being longer than one hour please get in touch separately so we can plan times appropriately. Email
For safety reasons a bright cap and tow-float are compulsory during your swim. 
Please note that swimmers only are permitted on the boat. 
How it works:- 
You are delegated a 1 hour time slot. 
Note :- No transfers or refunds under any circumstance unless cancelled by the organisers.
