Open Water Swim Coaching in Canary Wharf, London

Join us for open water swim coaching in Canary Wharf, London. Our Saturday morning group open water swim coaching for adults takes place at the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre.  Whether you are a first time open water swimmer or a seasoned triathlete, we have coaching available for you. We coach from both the pontoons and our kayaks, enabling our coaches to be safe and to see you. Our coaches hold an open water swim coaching certificate and are also BCU Kayak Level 2 qualified.

We are running a limited number of one-to-one open water swim coaching sessions on Thursday’s and Saturday’s in July and August. These sessions are with Head Coach Andrew and are priced at £85.00 per one hour session. We are unable to accept credits from packages for these exclusive sessions. Bookings are open online, click here to book.


Swim Coaching at the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre

The Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre is an ideal venue for open water swimming.  With a second to none safety track record, our open water swim coaching sessions couldn’t feel safer. Each session has a Watersports Centre staff member on site specifically for any emergency situations. Our coaches have two-way radios so that they can be in immediate contact. The postcode for this venue is E16 3QS.

Please note that due to Covid-19, changing rooms and showers are currently not available from Turner Swim. We are now able to lend wetsuits, as we can disinfect them after, included in the price of your session. We are an official Huub wetsuit outlet, so can sell open water wetsuits too.


Open Water Swim Coaching at Royal Victoria Docks

We may be able to run open water swim coaching at Royal Victoria Docks, by the Excel Centre in 2020. Our plans have been delayed by Covid-19. For now, our confirmed sessions are only at the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre.


Turner Swim’s Group Open Water Swim Coaching Modules

Modules 1A to 5A are designed for swimmers who can swim at least 50 meters front crawl without stopping but have no previous experience in open water. We call this our pool-to-dock programme, which is basically open water swim coaching for beginners. It is highly recommended to attend all four of these initial sessions to gain a good foundation in open water swimming. If you do have previous experience we will see you in Module B!

Modules 1B to 5B are for adults who already have open water swimming experience. Improve your swimming and gain a competitive edge. Each module is a stand alone 1 hour session, so you can pick and choose modules. Sessions 1B-5B have an individual focus on a specific element of stroke technique as well as stamina building longer swim sets.

Prices: 1 hour sessions are priced at £33.00. 5 x one hour package is £145.00. Group sessions have a maximum of 6 swimmers per coach. We run a 48 hour cancellation policy. We reserve the right to postpone a session if we have only 3 participants or less per coach.
