Open Water Swimming Intro Course

Have you dreamed of becoming an open water swimmer, but not sure where to start?

Our Open Water Swim Intro Course is an ideal way to transition from pool to open water.

What is the Swim Intro Course?

The Swim Intro Course consists of 4 guided sessions at a tidal pool in Camps Bay, which creates an ideal setting for swimmers new to open water.

What you’ll learn:

  • How to handle cold water
  • Skills such as sighting and ocean safety
  • Strength & conditioning exercises
  • Building up your fitness to swimming 800m

Am I fit enough to join?

To sign up, you need to be able to swim at least 200m (8 lengths) continuously in a pool.

At the end of the course there’s an option to continue onto our swim group at Clifton, provided that you pass the competency assessment.


New swimmers: R825 per course, including a swim cap and resistance band.

Repeat swimmers: R660 per course (20% off – please request your discount code)
