The Wild Swimming Festival

20/ 21 July 2024

The Wild Swimming Festival is the event beside the sea that you've all been asking for. Featuring live music, swim races, seminars with experts in water safety sessions, local food and drink and iconic guided swims with our open water coaches and lifeguards. 

With Swanage's limited tidal range, golden sandy beaches and an easterly outlook, Swanage Bay is renowned for it's clear, calm & swim friendly waters.

The Jurassic Swim Challenge is a choice of a 4km or a 2km race around the bay.

 

If a racing challenge isn't your thing, book your place for a personal challenge or join one of our small group guided swims of Swanage's Victorian Piers, Dancing Ledge, Old Harry Rocks or a Hike and dip at secretive Durlston Bay.

There are limited tickets available, book now to avoid disappointment. 

We are investing in Swanage's community's wild swimming initiatives.
