Frequently Asked Questions

Answer: Not particularly, but you must have no serious underlying health issues which will make it dangerous for you to participate in these sessions. Don’t worry if you are unsure as all participants will undergo medical screening. For some of our beach locations you will need to be able to walk approx. 1 mile unaided due to the distance to the water at low tide.


  • It is important to note that the point of the sessions is to increase your confidence and learn how to be safe in cold water rather than being an advanced swimming course. 
  • For the outdoor pool courses you do not require any swimming experience because you will be able to put your feet down on the floor at all times
  • For the courses in lakes and the sea, you have to be able to swim 2 lengths of a 25m pool unaided.  

Answer: Each session will take about 1 hour, with between approx. 10 to 35 minutes in the water depending on the temperature, conditions and how acclimatised the group has become.

Answer: No more than 10 people

Answer: There is no need to talk about your mental health at any of the swimming sessions.
