Sea Swimming

The sea is like a mother
LIQUID EMBRACE: The sea is like a mother. Respect her, and she will protect you

A Sea Swim is a long-distance swim in the sea. Adventure Breaks ensures you do it in safety, enjoy the experience and gain a sense of achievement. Sea swimmers are accompanied by a boat and/or by kayaks, depending on the number of swimmers in the group. Leading the group will be an experienced sea swimmer. The pace of swimming will be slow; it is an excursion, not a race.

MANDOVI SWIM
Can you swim 1 kilometre non-stop in the pool? Have you always wanted to swim across the River Mandovi, but lacked the support and infrastructure required? Adventure Breaks will organise a Mandovi Swim and enable you to realise your dream, in complete safety. Each swimmer will be equipped with a safety pull-buoy. There will be an escort boat with trained crew and emergency flotation for safety.
