Welcome to the UK's friendliest open water swimming venue. Please note that for 2021, you will need to be a member to visit Vobster Quay.
We offer swim members the option to choose a timed booking slot every day, for 7 days a week. The timed booking slots will start at 08:00 mid-week and 09:00 at weekends.
We still require that swimmers must swim in pairs - or at least have one assigned land based spotter who watches them throughout their swim - unless they are swimming during a life guarded timed slot. We will be increasing the number of life guarded sessions during Summer 2021.
Please do not turn up if you are not a current member and have not booked a session.
