I’m an ex-competitive swimmer, with more than 14 years of experience as an amateur pro. In 2009, I switched to open water swimming with the intention of enjoying natural beauty and replacing swimming pools with outdoor activities. I’m excited to offer this experience for ordinary people and athletes alike who want to escape their normal routine and take advantage of Rio's natural environment.

Where you'll be

We’ll be in Rio’s Copacabana neighborhood, at Posto (lifeguard watchtower) 6, which is located between Rainha Elizabeth and Julio de Castilhos streets. It’s one of the best places to practice the wonderful sport of open water swimming.

Tive uma experiência incrível de nadar no mar com a assistência do Felipe. Ele me ajudou bastante em questão de técnicas de natação e informações quanto a provas de Triatlo, que ele já participou várias vezes. Nadou ao meu lado durante todo o tempo passando bastante segurança. Recomendo a todos essa experiência incrível.

So good I did it twice on my trip to Rio. Felipe is an excellent coach – knowledgable, patient, and encouraging. This experience is a great way to start your day in Rio!

Swimming with Felipe was a total blast! Throughout the morning, he was attentive and helpful, and made me feel super confident about swimming in the ocean (which I'd never done before). He provided great, practical tips about improving my form, and he adjusted the drills to my particular level and needs. I highly recommend!

2 of us swam with Felipe. We have some swim experience but not in the ocean. The water was a little choppy, but we had a great swim and Felipe kept checking we were ok and we both felt completely safe in his hands. We would not have considered swimming where we did, in those conditions, by ourselves. Great to be in touch with Mother Nature. Highly recommend this experience even for open water beginners.

O Felipe é TOP! Super atencioso, prestativo, pontual e dá todo o suporte necessário deixando o aluno a vontade, sem medo, ao mesmo tempo em que corrige erros, dá dicas para melhorar a técnica e respeita o limite. Recomendo muito!

This is the best way to experience Copacabana beach! Felipe had a chat with me to gauge my level of fitness and at the beginning, we will started doing some warm-up drills in the beach , and we hit the water right all. Though it was my first time to swim in the open water, overall felt being well - guided and taken care after all. I loved it so much when I was in Rio, thus, I did twice during my holiday. Good Stuff!
