We do Special.


Personal Attention

From your first call or e mail to us, you'll be speaking with fellow swimmers who have traveled, worked and swum all over the world. Our commitment is to listen to you and understand what you are seeking from your week in the water with us. And when we say Your Distance at Your Pace, we mean it.


Comfort and Safety

We focus on your comfort and safety so you can immerse yourself in your vacation. Whether it’s our exotic, beach front, private home in Hawaii, or our luxurious yachts in the Caribbean and Turkish Coast, you can be confident that your accommodations and activities have been selected with attention to both comfort and safety. In addition to one guide on a paddle board, our guides are in the water with you, sharing your experience, one stroke at a time.


Local Relationships

Our local guides, crews and chefs are passionate about their homes and take pride in introducing our guests to their culture, cuisine and way of life. Our deep local relationships are cultivated so that you feel at home in a new place, with people like family who allow us to create truly enriching experiences.


Travel Philosophy

Freedom and accessibility for chance wildlife encounters, maintaining flexibility to seek out the best swimming conditions, and connecting with the vibe of a place is key to our travel philosophy. We encourage you to immerse and re-connect with who you are in the water. SwimVacation trips are designed to offer the best swimming while allowing freedom for those serendipitous moments that often create your best travel memories.


Like-minded Travelers

We attract people who want to be in the water. We host those who already feel at home in the water, but also some who strive to feel more comfortable there. Our guests are inquisitive about the ocean and themselves in it. Traveling with people who are active and love the sea enriches your swimming experience. It’s one of the reasons so many of our guests come back again and again.


Our Guests

Our travelers know they are valued before, during and long after they return home. It’s why almost half of our guests come back for another week with us, and many join us annually. They see us as a trusted resource for great swim travel, and they enjoy being a part of the SwimVacation family we have nurtured. We return our appreciation through our alumni benefits program, which includes discounts on repeat travel, early notification about new and upcoming experiences we have planned, as well as access to our tight community of fellow SwimVacation alums. We're happy to connect you with recently returned guests to discuss their experience with us - who better to give you the best reasons to travel with us!
