What you'll do

I swim in the open ocean almost everyday and you will jump in with me. Prior to when we meet I will discuss with you your conditioning and your experience level. You need to be an active swimmer and have some experience with waves and current. We will swim anywhere from 3 to 4 or more kms with the goal being to enjoy the water and learn about open water swimming. Of course depending on your ability and on the day we can go longer and harder. Whats makes the venue unique is that we will swim to the Ilha de Campeche, a gorgeous nature reserve 1.5 kms from the beach at Campeche. I provide swim buoys and if required will provide a swim wet suit rental. You will learn about reading the waves and the current, sighting, open water breathing, navigating on the water, and ways to get in and out depending on the local conditions. I will take pictures of you in the water and on the island. The session will last from 2-3 hours with time to warm up, walk on the island and after our water session either get a hot coffee or a cool bowl of Acai. Again to fully enjoy our session you should be a strong swimmer. If you can easily swim an hour in the pool you should be good to go.

Nathaniel

I am a lifetime open water swimmer and resident of Florianopolis. Originally from New England I have lived, swam, sailed and surfed the World. Every year I do a new crossing swim; Gibraltar, Tahiti to Moorea, Sardinia to Corsica. I train almost daily in front of and around A Ilha do Campeche, that beautiful island just off of the Atlantic coast of Florianopolis. I help triathletes get more enjoyment (and speed!) from open water swimming and educate kids and adults about how to enter the ocean with waves and currents. In short I want everybody to enjoy the ocean safely and be a 'waterman'.
