barbados beach 600

Barbados, me hearties!

September 18-25, 2020

barbados turtle 350We all have our own visions of the Caribbean, usually in our mind's eye, of romantic scenes on sail boats in the sunset, of cocktails in coconuts on the beach, of pirates terrorising the seas, of simpering victims walking the plank, of gimlet-eyed expats, worn out by drink and desperation, propped up by the bar, their monocle bleared by heavy breath and sweat; but also of hot days and balmy evenings, clear, warm seas, coral reefs, sea life abundant, ukeleles and Harry Belafonte contriving a gently soporific atmosphere from positions hidden behind every palm tree...

We’re very excited to offer our first oceanswimsafari in the Caribbean: a week swimming around the glorious beaches and bays of Barbados.

We’re working with the organisers of the Barbados Open Water Festival to bring you this oceanswimsafari, to run from September 18-25, 2020.

This is icon territory. Over the course of a week, we’ll swim in six different locations around Barbados, the eastern-most island in the Caribbean archipelagos. Barbados is a small island nation: 33km long and 23km wide at its widest point. Accommodation is at the organisers’ beach house on Bath Beach, on Barbados’s rugged east coast. Bath Beach is described as “a hidden paradise; no crowds, no noisy traffic, a haven for peace & tranquillity”.

Swims range from 2km to 4km.

Our oceanswimsafari partners tell us…

All 6 Swim locations are very safe with perfect swimming conditions, ideal for all swimming ability levels. Our swims cater for all open water swimmers from beginners to advanced.

This oceanswimsafari is limited to 10 guests only.
