Wild Swimming

Experience the beauty of the Cornish coastline from the water, swimming between sheltered, secluded, coves and staring up at majestic cliffs.  Whether you’re already a wild swimming enthusiast, a triathlete in training or you’ve never left the confines of a pool, you’ll find one of our guided wild swimming routes to suit your needs, whatever your ability.

From our base on the North Cornwall coast, Cornish Rock Tors are able to offer a range of wild swimming routes in beautiful and secluded locations.  Our routes from Port Gaverne to Port Isaac and beyond follow the impressive rocky shoreline and provide a real sense of escape.  Whichever you choose to swim with us, you will be embracing the elements and will enjoy stunning natural environments.  You won’t be counting pool tiles with Cornish Rock Tors!

­You will be led by a qualified guide and lifeguard who will swim or paddle a kayak alongside you, providing support and encouragement should it be required and carrying towels and refreshments if you plan to stop en-route.  Our routes can be tailored to your requirements, from a leisurely swim with friends exploring a sheltered inlet or stretch of otherwise inaccessible coastline, through to a long open-water training swim for athletes or club members, and everything in-between.

Short Routes

Our short route options are ideal for small groups wishing to explore the beautiful coastline of Cornwall, or for swimmers wishing to develop their confidence in open water or dipping their toes in “wild swimming”.  The emphasis is on having fun and soaking up the sights as you swim along a short section of secluded coast.

Medium Routes

Designed for confident swimmers or wild swimming enthusiasts, our medium length routes are more of a “journey”.  The aim is to provide a comfortable level of challenge whilst allowing you to soak up some sights along the way, leaving you with a sense of achievement as you walk up the beach at the end.

Longer Routes

If you are an avid open water swimmer then this is for you.  We can tailor routes to specific distances if you or your club are training for an event, or we can set you a challenge!

Join Cornish Rock Tors to explore the beautiful coastlines of Cornwall with confidence, in a controlled activity with a qualified guide and far from the crowds of the main beaches.  Our wild swimming guides are lifeguards with a great deal of open-water swimming experience who have also undergone our in house training to ensure you are in the safest hands.
