I’ve been having a proper nose through this new book The Art of Wild Swimming…

… it’s packed full of awesome locations to swim, interesting stories from across the open swimming community and great tips to help you on your next open water adventure. I had the privilege of adding a few words of my own about some of my favourite places to swim Heron Lake and Andark Lake.

Looking for a bargain, Dryrobe coat, should be £160 on our site for £120, any colour and size. Also Dryrobe towel and Compression Bag available. Early Christmas perhaps?

Have you got a first aid course coming up? Or maybe I imagined it!!!
Congratulations to these guys on passing their PADI Open Water course at the Andark Lake today.
Well done to all of you and welcome to the diving world 🤿.
Thanks to our instructors Bryn and Graeme for putting on a great course for the students with one of our Andark Scholars Cameron supporting them.
Great weekend of diving. We went to Vobster Quay Inland Diving Centre to finish off the PADI Deep Diver course. At our Andark Lake we had new Open Water students completing.
Getting ready for a busy month ahead! 🤿😊

It was great swimming at Andark Lake last night! I've never swam on a Summer Solstice! It was lovely to see so many people there enjoying an evening swim!

Thank you Mike.
