Frequently Asked Questions
We're here help you make the most of your adventure. Find answers to our most frequently asked questions below.
The Swimming Cruise is for you if you:
- Like or love swimming, especially in the sea!
- Want to see and feel yourself get fitter, faster and stronger in swimming every day.
- Enjoy spending time relaxing on a boat, surrounded by stunning natural scenery.
- You’re not prone to experiencing anxiety attacks or similar episodes from swimming in the sea and don’t suffer from anxiety or phobia-related issues connected to swimming.
- Enjoy spending time in the water (we advise at least half an hour per session, but every day’s swim is optional) regardless of whether you’re a fast or experienced swimmer or not.
From a ratio of level 1 (= you can barely keep afloat) to level 10 (= Olympic gold medallist), the ideal is for you to be at level 3 and above.
However, we offer one-on-one training during each day’s swimming session for swimmers who are just getting started. Personal training, which comes at an extra cost, is obligatory for safety reasons.
The swims are not competitive. The ultimate goal of this experience is to enjoy swimming as part of your travel adventure, celebrating your body as an amazing vehicle that can take you along the water to new and incredible places!
We are here to help by professionally assessing and significantly improving your techniques. How far you go is entirely up to you, depending on your personal interests and goals.
We’ve made sure that from morning until night, you will not go hungry!
Both of the hotels we recommend as Swimming Cruise accommodations, Niki's Village and Ninetta's Studios, serve a delicious buffet breakfast that is included in the price of your stay.
On board the boat, we serve you complimentary refreshments (non-alcoholic beverages including isotonic drinks) and light meals or snacks such as protein bars and sandwiches throughout the hours of the Swimming Cruise.
For lunch, we will stop at a different high-quality taverna in the vicinity of each day’s destination for a light, healthy and scrumptious meal. The price of the lunch is not included in your swimming holiday, so each participant covers her/his own costs.
You are permitted to bring your own foods, drinks or snacks on board the boat, including alcoholic beverages. Please note that if you consume alcohol you will not be permitted to swim.
We supply you with a FREE:
- Swimming cap (for you to take home with you)
- Swimming goggles
Please bring your own:
- Extra pair of swimming goggles. Make sure they are water and fog-proof and fit your face very comfortably
- Your mask and snorkel, if you’d like to go snorkelling
In the case of injury or other health emergencies, we offer our full and immediate support in providing you with the closest professional medical care available, regardless of our location at the time.
Our captain and staff are trained lifeguards and we have a first aid kit on board at all times for treating any minor injuries.
If you feel more assured by having Health Insurance, it is recommended that you organize it in advance of your trip with your country’s medical authorities.
Participants in the Swimming Cruise must be at least 14 years old, (and until age 16, are welcome to attend with the written permission of their parents) and up to any age.
Participants who need extra attention due to inexperience, physical issues or other, are obliged to receive private swimming support from our staff. This comes at an extra cost as it requires that a staff member accompanies the participant during all times of their swim (on a SUP or dinghy), offering personal advice and assistance.
Whether you’d like to participate in the Swimming Cruise with members of your family, a group of friends or a professional team, we accept group bookings of four or more people.
