The Healing Ocean


As we enter our 11th year of SwimVacation, we are thinking about the things that have made this crazy idea work. Our incredible guides and crews, the beautiful people of the islands, and the Ocean. 

People who love to spend time in the water come to us for an active, fun vacation. But many of our guests reach out to us during a time of transition in their lives. Job changes, spouse changes, the loss of a loved one. Some are recovering from injuries. Some are just weary from the grind of life. Something we've witnessed with all of them is how a few days in the ocean cradles them though their transition, often sending them home with a new perspective on things.

The truth is, this idea works because we deliver people - safely, comfortably - to the Ocean. Then, we let the water do its work. It pushes, challenges, supports and strengthens us. We guide, cheer, feed, quench, and assist along the way. But we recognize that the simple act of surrender to immersion in the Ocean is the magic. At SwimVacation, we just deliver you to it. 

SwimVacation and the Solo Traveler

From the beginning, we have embraced the solo traveler (sometimes literally, upon request). We offer shared spots on all of our trips, which makes the trip more affordable for solo travelers. Many of these roomies have become fast friends, and continue to travel together on SwimVacations and to other swimming events around the world. We also offer single occupancy rooms.  Another way we embrace the solo traveler is with travel planning assistance. From pre and post trip accommodations and activities to air and ground transportation, we've become experts in getting to, from, and around the places we offer trips. 

We can't wait to swim with you!
