AVON RIVER £65 per person  

A stunning 5km tidal assisted river swim starting at Aveton Gifford and finishing at Bantham beach. 

This beautiful area of outstanding natural beauty is a bucket list swim for most outdoor swimming enthusiasts. 

The tide helps you downstream all the way, the closer to the beach we get the faster the flow gets until we reach what is know as the "Swoosh". This is where the river squeezes and the speed of the tidal flow increases to an unbelievable rate - if you ever dreamed of being an Olympic swimmer you'll feel like one here!

Our group size is 6 max.

We offer a gentle paced swim, perfect for breast strokers and slower paced front crawlers.

A quicker paced swim is also on offer for those who wish to continuous front crawl swim...please know this is not a race but more a chance to enjoy a truly beautiful swim. Were possible we stay as group and enjoy it as a group. 

With very few exit points along the swim you will need to be sure you can complete the distance. 

Included in the price is:

- Experienced swim guide and water safety cover

- Coast to Coast Water Safety swim cap 

- Transport from Bantham to swim start

- Hot drink and cake from the "Gastrobus" post swim

THE HIKONIC  

Join us for our new activity - the HIKONIC. 

This is a swim hike mission allowing you to swim some of Devon's most iconic wild swims and getting to each one via breath-taking coastal paths. This adventure covers a total swim distance of 5km and coast path hiking for 10km - so a decent level of fitness is required.

For this you will be lent one of our Ruckrafts from Above Below,(https://www.abovebelow.sc/ruckraft) a great piece of kit which allows you to swim with your hiking gear behind you and hike with your swim gear on your back. During the 'Hikonic'  we take in 3 iconic swims (Burgh Island, Bantham Swoosh and the Thurlestone Archway) reaching them all via the stunning South West Coast-path.

If conditions are unsafe on the day of your swim hike we have an alternative route in which we still take in some the South hams most amazing sights and places. We don't think you will be disappointed!

Included in the price is:

- Full swim guide and safety cover 

- Loan of an Above Below Ruckraft for your Hikonic
