Welcome To Sea Swim Cornwall


Boasting miles of world-class beaches and a stunning rural interior: Cornwall is breathtakingly beautiful. Picture palm-fringed sands, crystalline waters and a dramatically rugged coastline for some seriously special swimming spots, along with a handpicked variety of locations in which to enjoy a truly memorable stay.

From tranquil creeks and historic harbours to wide expanses of windswept, dune-flanked golden beaches, Cornwall’s diversity of waterscapes offer a series of unique places to swim that will suit a range of agendas and abilities.

Experience the wonder of St Michaels Mount from the sea, explore secret coves near Lands End and the thrill of the surf at Newquay’s famous Fistral Beach.

The real question is: why wouldn’t you want to come?

  • I was nervous about the weekend – would I keep up/be able to swim far enough etc etc but had the most fantastic time and felt fantastic afterwards. Jo and Tom are lovely guys with brilliant local knowledge of locations, tides and how the weather can alter conditions – they took us to wherever they knew we’d be best protected from the winds for swimming. Places I’d never have found on my own, to remarkably clear seas with fascinating underwater scenes of rocks, seaweeds and fish to enjoy as we swam. We swam through rock arches, to hidden coves, into Mousehole and St Ives harbours and to finish, a fun body surfing lesson. With both guys close by on paddle boards I always felt safe and protected. Thank you, and see you again! (Kathy)

  • Brilliant swimming adventure last weekend with Jo and Tom a.k.a Sea Swim Cornwall. Very competent guides: they can coach, lifeguard, run, swim – **and** they are really nice guys. They know Cornwall so they took us to places I’d never have discovered as a visitor – wonderful secret coves to swim in, and the most amazing guided swims around headlands. The underwater landscapes are gorgeous: clear water, deep blue ravines, beautiful dark red seaweed clumps, and underwater rock formations. I had a wonderful time, and received useful coaching from Jo and Tom on my swim technique – fantastic – recommended – I’ll be back. (Jane)

  • Excellent weekend in Cornwall with Tom and Joe. Needless to say I’m booking September’s weekend now (Charlie)

  • A fantastic weekend of swimming, great scenery and most stunning underwater marine world. I never expected waters this clear. Who says one needs to go snorkelling to faraway places. Well done boys, thanks for the lovely cakes and my swimming fellows for the great company… (Katarina)
