Swims

All swims are guided, with at least two SwimVacation staff members swimming with the group, or one watching over us from a standup paddle board or dinghy. We do not race. We tour the underwater sites and have fun. You can go hard, or you can go easy. Elite swimmers will be offered longer swims. Tour locations change every day, depending on weather and the desires of our guests.

Swims are tailored to meet the needs of swimmers with different abilities. With only six swimming guests per trip, two small groups may be formed, and each group may create different goals. Ocean swimming is our passion, and it’s the focus of activity on your SwimVacation. 

Swimming Clinics

The clear waters of the Mediterranean allow us to take videos of your stroke right in the open water during the first 2 days of your trip. On the second or third night we have a video review and collaborative stroke analysis. During the week we also cover open water swimming techniques such as safety, sighting and navigation, buoy turns, pack swimming and drafting and race strategy.


Accommodations

We choose our vessels from a large fleet of upscale catamaran yachts that are available to us in the Greek Islands. 


Food & Beverage

Enjoy freshly prepared meals, three times daily (one dinner will be on shore and not included in your trip fare). All trips have an open bar, which includes a large selection of beer, wine, liquor, and soft drinks. Water and snacks will be available before, during, and after your swims. Special dietary needs can be accommodated to a certain extent.


Activities

There are lots of possibilities for play in the Ionian Islands. Snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding, shopping, running, hiking, and napping are just a few.
