Croatia is fast becoming known as one of the world’s best open water swimming locations. Warm weather, blue skies and incredible natural scenery make for a beautiful backdrop for training. With warm calm seas this is an ideal training ground for open water swimmers. Further to this, the Croatian islands with their numerous quiet bays and interesting topography, are the place to go for a great swimming adventure.

Our camps are held in a picturesque and secluded bay making for a perfect training camp base to focus on all things swimming. Quick and easy access to the open water, a mere 50 metres away.

Camps held in spring make for ideal timing getting you race ready and confident pre-season, or in autumn, to build and develop of skills post season extending the summer sunshine in luxurious style; all under the guidance of an expert.
