what we do



Coast to Coast are offering small group guided swims some of the most iconic swimming spots in the the South West.

Our swim guides are knowledgeable about the area, its history and wildlife as well as being qualified ocean lifeguards.



These swims are leisurely, taking up to around an hour to complete the 1 mile distance, allowing swimmers the time to enjoy, explore, learn about and experience some of the UK's most spectacular coastline.

Want a private individual or group swim or have a specific date in mind - book a "private swim" instead.


We have no organised group round island swims planned for October.

If you wish to have a guided swim - please get in touch to book a private swim.

The ocean is an ever changing and dangerous environment, it attracts many of us for different reasons such as fitness, fun, rejuvenation, ...

With no qualifications or training required to head out into the sea, the risks are dramatically increased, however a bit of knowledge could make the difference between adventure and misadventure. 

A combination of practical and theoretical workshops can help you to better understand the area you wish to venture into. Helping you to better understand tides, surf, rivers, currents, wind and your equipment as well as formulating a safety plan, just in case!

Our Coast to Coast watermen and women have years of experience in a wide variety of water activities along with a deep understanding of this environment. Taking this knowledge, and listening to your needs we create bespoke workshops, to match the individual. Our end goal is to see you enjoying the ocean in a safer way with improved confidence.

Drop us a message and we can work with you to find out how to best support you.


The ocean is our daily working environment. The Coast to Coast safety team are experts in how the tide, wind and swell will effect an area on a given day. With this knowledge we can work with you in the development stages of production, using this understanding and expertise to help realise your projects, ensuring they run smoothly and efficiently on the day. 


During this early consultation we are able to risk assess the water side of the production leading to a water safety management plan, and go on to provide, source or recommend the required water safety assets. 


The Coast to Coast safety team have partnered up with Salcombe Sea N Shore, to bring you a one stop shop in filming support and safety.
