Wild Swimming – North Coast

Swim with us between the picturesque coves of Port Gaverne and Port Isaac, a relaxed route beneath the cliffs of a heritage coast region.  Should you wish to we can then swim further, along the coast of an area of outstanding natural beauty.  The views along this stretch are truly stunning, and there is no better way to see it than from the water.

Starting from the beach at Port Gaverne we’ll swim out of the shallow cove and continue west along the base of the cliffs to the picturesque fishing village of Port Isaac.  For medium and longer wild swimming routes we continue on past Port Isaac, pausing in remote coves and on hidden beaches to soak up the beautiful environment along the way.


We offer short, medium and long-distance routes that cater for a wide range of abilities, from casual swimmers seeking a supported introduction to wild swimming through to triathletes training for an open water swim event.  Each session can be tailored to suit your requirements, be it a relaxing sightseeing swim or a tough training session.
