We run regular boat trips out of St Abbs harbour to swim and snorkel the rugged coastline of St Abbs head with Stingray providing safety cover. The trips are 90 mins-3 hours depending on the trip that you book. We have a schedule of trips planned but happy to work with you to add extra dates and bespoke trips for your groups.
Our WILD SWIMMING Trips
We offer a 90 min trip from St Abbs harbour to take swimmers out around the famous St Abbs head with its cliffs and gullies. Sites will vary depending on the tides and weather but with miles of unspoilt coastline there is always new places to explore.
We will be swimming from Stingray which has a lift on the back for safe entry and exit of the water. There is also a toilet and hot drinks and biscuits are provided. We can carry 12 passengers and there is plenty of space for getting changed and warm after being in the water. You will be able to do as little or as much time in the water as you are comfortable with and the boat can be summoned at any time.
The trip will be accompanied by Sally who is a STA Level 2 Open Water swimming coach and British Sub Aqua Club diving and snorkel instructor.
We have a schedule of trips already planned but if you don't see availability we are happy to work with you to add extra trips.
Price start from £35pp or full boat hire for your group from £385
