All are welcome to join us for our practices at Kitsilano Beach. Swim practices involve swimming with a group while being watched by lifeguards in boats who are there especially for us. These swims with lifeguard support make ocean swimming easier for those who want to try it and to meet other people who love open water swimming.
Whether you are a seasoned open water swimmer, regular pool swimmer, triathlete, or just enjoy our local ocean, come try it out. The course we do is 1500m but you don’t have to swim the whole distance. We have 1.5 hours of lifeguard service, so you may do more than one lap.
A mandatory safety briefing is provided at the beach before each swim.
