What you'll do

We'll meet at a time convenient for you, in Portobello, at Edinburgh's seaside, easily accessible from the centre of Edinburgh on the 26 bus. Arriving at the beach, I'll give a quick safety briefing and address any questions or concerns about swimming or water temperature. We can put a little fire on at the beach, to warm up at afterwards. We'll walk into the water slowly and controlled and swim for as long or as short as is comfortable and enjoyable! I always recommend at least a minute per degree Celsius of water temperature. We'll get out, get changed and enjoy hot tea, coffee or hot chocolate. There is a public pool nearby, where you can get a hot shower, if you feel you need it!

Learn more about Anna

Anna

I have been an outdoor swimmer for as long as I can remember and took up winter swimming 4 years ago. Swimming in the Scottish North Sea daily is my meditation, the sea humbles me and puts everything into perspective. It makes me feel happy to be alive and on top of the world. I love introducing new people to sea swimming and have coached many people into the sea, that have now turned into mermaids and -men. I promise, you will love the ecstatic joy that it adds to life, too! Come immerse yourself in the outdoors with me!

What's included

Food
I will have a small selection of snacks available, because you will feel hungry after a dip in the sea!
Drinks
You will be provided with a hot drink of your choice - prepared in my Kelly Kettle - tea, coffee, or hot chocolate!

Where you'll be

Not many people know that Edinburgh has it's very own seaside and beach! The little seaside in Portobello is worth a visit with its many lovely shops and cafes. We can discuss what's best for your group in advance, I can advise you for tide timings and weather forecast.
