Introduction to Bay Swimming

A welcoming, non-judgemental and FUN intro to cold water and open water swimming

This class will cover the basics of swimming safely and confidently in open water, especially San Francisco Bay. We'll cover hypothermia( how to prevent it & what to do if you do get cold), tides and currents as well as practice how to sight and how to swim with friends.

Cost is $55 pp, payable in advance ,please contact me on my "contact " link for further details.

No more than 5 swimmers per coach/teacher  so plenty of individual attention.

We swim at Aquatic Park SF, a hotbed of open water swimmers. Wetsuit or no, you'll come away with confidence and hopefully have some fun as well.
