Það sem verður gert

I swim in the open ocean almost everyday and you will jump in with me. Prior to when we meet I will discuss with you your conditioning and your experience level. You need to be an active swimmer and have some experience with waves and current. We will swim anywhere from 3 to 4 or more kms with the goal being to enjoy the water and learn about open water swimming. Of course depending on your ability and on the day we can go longer and harder. Whats makes the venue unique is that we will swim to the Ilha de Campeche, a gorgeous nature reserve 1.5 kms from the beach at Campeche. I provide swim buoys and if required will provide a swim wet suit rental.

You will learn about reading the waves and the current, sighting, open water breathing, navigating on the water, and ways to get in and out depending on the local conditions. I will take pictures of you in the water and on the island.

The session will last from 2-3 hours with time to warm up, walk on the island and after our water session either get a hot coffee or a cool bowl of Acai.

Again to fully enjoy our session you should be a strong swimmer. If you can easily swim an hour in the pool you should be good to go.
Other things to note
The ocean is different every day and on the beaches of Campeche the Atlantic can look and behave very differently from one day to he next. So when you book your session I will review what to expect.

I am a lifetime open water swimmer and resident of Florianopolis. Originally from New England I have lived, swam, sailed and surfed the World. Every year I do a new crossing swim; Gibraltar, Tahiti to Moorea, Sardinia to Corsica. I train almost daily in front of and around A Ilha do Campeche, that beautiful island just off of the Atlantic coast of Florianopolis. I help triathletes get more enjoyment (and speed!) from open water swimming and educate kids and adults about how to enter the ocean with waves and currents. In short I want everybody to enjoy the ocean safely and be a 'waterman'.

To be honest, I was a bit nervous when I booked this experience. I have some background with swimming, but this was going to be farther than I've ever swum before and the first time in open water. But after booking, Nathaniel gave me a call and gave a really detailed explanation of what the swim would be like, and helped put me at ease. The day of the swim, we had perfect conditions, calm waters and lots of sun. Nathaniel swam slightly ahead of me to keep us on course but we went at my pace and I never felt like I was straining to keep up. The swim actually went a lot faster than I expected and I was almost sorry it was over so quick! Afterwards, we got coffee and Nathaniel shared stories of some of the amazing crossings he's done and more info about open water swimming. Definitely inspirational. All in all, I highly recommend this experience. For me the highlights were the sense of accomplishment from pushing beyond my limits and learning a lot about open water swimming. But beyond that, it's just a fantastic way to experience Florianopolis's waters and Ilha do Campeche from a different perspective.

Nathaniel foi muito atencioso, explicou sobre as possíveis dificuldades do percurso, respondeu dúvidas e organizou tudo de uma forma muito segura. Para quem nunca nadou em águas abertas, essa experiência é uma excelente forma de começar.

A experiência de nadar até a ilha é incrível. Superou muito as nossas expectativas. Nathaniel foi muito atencioso, perguntou sobre nossa experiência com natação e explicou (antes de entrarmos na água) todos os detalhes do percurso e como superar as partes mais difíceis. Ele passa segurança e fica evidente que tem muita experiência e conhecimento da prática de natação em mar aberto. Uma experiência absolutamente única. Recomendo!

Nathaniel was really kind and helpful. We weren't exactly the typical clientele - unfit grown ups with kids who can't swim. He was very adaptable - moving the lesson from the sea to the lake and i think he really helped give our son an even greater enthusiasm for becoming a waterman. He was really helpful too and gave us pointers for where to get pool lessons with an English speaker. We will be back for a sea session, when we are a bit more competent!

It was amazing experience ! Highly recommend . Nathaniel has a lot of experience swimming and also in the sea, that makes you fell safe and swing calmly.

O Nathaniel é muito atencioso tanto durante a aula quanto nos preparativos antes da aula, ele procurou saber sobre minha experiência com natação, quais eram minhas dúvidas, etc. Dessa forma a aula foi bem específica para minha necessidade. Infelizmente na semana que fui fazer a aula choveu muito, a temperatura não ajudava, não consegui nadar tanto quanto eu gostaria (devido a meu nível de natação). Mas a aula e as dicas do Nathaniel de como entrar, como sair do mar, como interpretar as ondas, como ficar tranquilo no mar foi sensacional e para quem nunca tinha andado no mar foi inesquecível. Com toda certeza voltarei em breve e tentar pegar um tempo melhor 😅
