Guided Open Water Swimming

7 Day Sailing Journey


The Journey

Designed to provide the perfect combination of activity and relaxation, this trip is the ultimate, exclusive ‘get-away-from-it-all' treat for any open water swimmer. Based around the chain of low slung islands and barrier cays in the northern Bahamas known as the Abaco Islands, swimmers can explore the shallow turquoise paradise of the Abaco Sea which is home to pristine white sands, gin-clear waters, and an array of marine life from dolphins and rays to brightly colored reef fish and swimming pigs! Live on a private yacht in a place where each day begins and ends under skies of soft pinks and savor magnificent food, panoramic ocean views, and unbeatable swimming in one of the largest coral reefs in the Northern Hemisphere. Your home for the week is a modern catamaran sailboat with comfortable accommodations and a Sailing Collective captain and chef on hand to make this journey an experience of a lifetime.

The Swimming

This is an all levels trip. You do not need prior open water swimming experience to join the fun. Renowned swim coach Mia Russel is onboard to guide you and offer helpful feedback as well as monitor safety. Small group size means that daily swims are tailored to your abilities and you'll benefit from the safety of having a Coach and crew nearby at all times. The luxury of an onboard chef makes this a truly relaxing adventure even as you swim to heart's content each day.
