What our customers say

Thank you so much

Hi Hannah & team

Thank you so much for this morning. Lyn & I really enjoyed ourselves & massively benefitted from the experience! You made it so much easier than my previous open water swim by explaining how to enter the water and, of course, giving us lots of encouragement!

Here is the early morning pic ......

Best wishes
