Swimming Holidays In The Maldives

Courtesy of SwimQuest Swimming Holidays , Maldives, Indian Ocean.

In February 2007, Lewis Pugh, prior to becoming the United Nations Patron of the Oceans, became the first person to swim across the width of the Maldives archipelago in a 140 km 10-day stage swim.

He undertook the swim to raise awareness about the effect of climate change on low lying islands in the world. The stage swim - one of the early Save Ourselves Swims - called attention to the plight of low-lying islands due to climate change.

If swimmers just want to enjoy themselves and enjoy "the Indian Ocean, the most benevolent ocean - warm, kind and turquoise," as described by Pugh, John Coningham-Rolls and SwimQuest offer a stunning swimcation in the Maldives.

Coningham-Rolls says, "Join us on board the impressive MV Voyager for the swimming holiday of a lifetime in The Maldives. Swim along impressive reefs, between islands, along atolls and enjoy a kaleidoscope of marine life as you discover an underwater world like no other.

The impressive 30m MV Voyager boasts air-conditioned cabins with en-suite bathrooms, spacious sun decks, an outdoor dining terrace, and a fully licensed bar - the only way to experience The Maldives. Our boats are also fully equipped with snorkel and scuba equipment and dive instructors in case you fancy snorkelling or scuba during your trip.

The Other Shore

The Other Shore follows world record holder and legendary swimmer Diana Nyad as she comes out of a thirty-year retirement to re-attempt an elusive dream: swimming 103 miles non-stop from Cuba to Florida without the use of a shark cage. Her past and present collide in her obsession with a feat that nobody has ever accomplished. At the edge of The Devil’s Triangle, tropical storms, sharks, venomous jellyfish, and one of the strongest ocean currents in the world, all prove to be life-threatening realities. Timothy Wheeler’s documentary brings Diana Nyad’s extraordinary adventure to life as Diana sets out to prove that will and determination are all you need to make the unimaginable possible.

2014 Open Water Swimming Almanac

An Almanac for Open Water Swimming

An almanac is essentially a body of knowledge which is so complete that it enables people in different fields to make predictions about the future of their respective industries.

This, for example, was the purpose of the traditional farmers almanacs. It enabled farmers to determine as accurately as possible which crops to plant for the greatest harvests in a given year.

But the farmers almanac was just one example among many.
There are, of course, many different kinds of almanacs.

In fact, there is even one for open water swimming...

The trends are very clear.
The tide is rising for open water swimming.
