SWIM IN JERSEY'S MOST SPECTACULAR BEACHES, COVES AND BAYS, ENJOY STUNNING ACCOMMODATION WITH SEA VIEWS AND LET US WHISK YOU ACROSS TO THE STUNNING ÉCRÉHOUS ISLANDS FOR A DIP.
Jersey is an open water swimmer’s dream destination. Its astonishing tides have shaped the island, leaving rugged coastlines, hidden white bays and beautiful coves to explore. This trip offers the opportunity to explore the best swimming spots Jersey has to offer, at a relaxed pace. Swims are short and sweet, and the aim of the weekend is to relax and enjoy Jersey’s best spots, rather than cranking out huge swim distances.
Not only do these breaks include stunning swims, but (weather pending) we will take you across to the Écréhous islands for a dip – keep your eyes peeled for dolphins on the way.
Leave the tide planning to us, and enjoy yourself safe in the knowledge you will be fully supported and covered by the SwimQuest team.
This trip takes place in late September, avoiding the busy summer season. We will complete two swims a day, interspersed with time to enjoy Jersey’s rich heritage.
AT A GLANCE:
These trips are ideal for anyone looking for a pampered short break, with a combination of swimming and time to relax
Daily swimming distance: we will swim between 1 – 3 km a day, broken down into two swims per day (please note distances are flexible and swims will be tailored to the needs of individuals in the group and the tide and weather conditions.)
Non-swimmers are welcome to join the tour and explore beautiful Jersey
Maximum group size 12
Water temperature In September the sea temperature is around 18oC
