A very big challenge, if not the biggest, for an open water swimmer is crossing the Straits of Gibraltar. It was a proposal of the same swim addicts who come to our activities which encouraged us to create a Neda el Món group for this exciting challenge. In 2012, 12 Neda el Món swimmers succeeded, 20 in 2013 and this year we pretend that even more swimmers manage to do so.
If you aim to cross the Straits and you would like to join the Neda el Món group, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what motivates you to do so. We will cross the Straits of Gibraltar between September 15th and September 28th.
The Neda el Món pack costs 1,980€. It includes the arrangements, the ACNEG payment, travel costs, accommodation, internal transfers and previous group training supervised by Jonathan Gómez.
In addition, if you cross the Straits with Neda el Món, we will offer you the Neda el Món pack , which allows you to participate free of charge to all the Neda el Món crossings in 2014 (except for Formigues Islands- Medes Islands and SwimHolidays).
Cheers and let's reach Africa!
Secret swims in Costa Brava
This season our technical team offers all open water lovers the possibility to indulge in a different type of training in the most spectacular spots off the beaten track of the Catalan coast.
Secret Swims are born out of this philosophy. “Secret” in this context means that, on the one hand, training takes place in uncrowded and secluded spots, and, on the other hand, the swimming location is not disclosed to the participants until the very same day of the activity.
These sessions are designed for swimmers who not only enjoy every single stroke but also delight in the beauty of the surroundings. Thus, on the day of the training we will make several stops to take pictures and have a snack in spots accessible only through swimming.
Dates: Saturdays & Sundays
Location: The swimming location won’t be disclosed until the very same day of the activity.
Duration: All day—-Swimmers must bring along their lunch—-
Distance: The swim itinerary might take from 4k up to 6K
Training fee: EUR 35 per session
Meeting point: Car Park at the Nova Marbella (or Mar Bella) beach in Barcelona (depending on the origin of the participants a different meeting point can be arranged).
The session includes:
-On-site coach directing and adapting the session to the group’s level
-Gift bag: Silicone cap + energetic drinks & bars
-Kayak or boat escorting swimmers during the activity
-Photographic report and video recording.
Without extra charge:
-Transfer (up to 7 seats) from Barcelona city.

The Newport Sharkfest Swim will take place along the historic waterfront of Newport, home of the America's Cup Hall of Fame. The swim will go from the harbormaster’s dock at Perotti Park in front of the Newport Marriott Hotel. It will be an in-water start in waves of 75 to proceed past the docks on your left side and anchored sailboats on the right side of the swimming channel. The 1500 meter swim will be a straight shot down the harbor to finish on the beach at King Park in the shadow of the statue of Rochambeau. Post event festivities will take place in the park, including the awards ceremony and the appropriate post swim fare. The event is limited to 400 participants, so don’t wait to register!
PLEASE NOTE: This swim is not for novices. This event is for experienced open-water swimmers only. You should be able to swim one mile comfortably in a pool in under 40 minutes.
Mott’s Channel Sprint starts at the Blockade Runner Resort, located on Wrightsville Beach, and finishes across the intracoastal at the Dockside Restaurant on Airlie Road. The course is approximately 1.3 miles long and is a point to point swim. The race will start at a high tide (based off of the Masonboro Inlet tide chart) to try and ensure a slight incoming to slack tide throughout the 1.3 mile swim. At the start swimmers will cross Banks Channel and enter Mott’s Channel (that stretch is about .25 mile) where they will swim past/around South Harbor Island, past Seapath Towers (about .55 mile), past Atlantic Marine, past Marine Max, cross over the ICW, and finally finishing at the Dockside Restaurant (about .55 miles). This is a great swim that starts with a straight path across Bank’s Channel into Mott’s Channel where you’ll want to stay about 15-20ft off the docks and pilings; take a slight right along South Harbor Island; cut across the channel to the marsh where again you’ll want to stay about 10-15ft off the docks and pilings; follow the marsh through the channel until you see Dockside in your view and then cut straight to the finish.
