Harbour swims are back

OPEN water swimming has returned to Bristol’s Floating Harbour. 

The swim sessions, which follow a successful trial last year, are overseen on behalf of the city council by All Aboard Watersports  and take place every Saturday and Sunday between 8am and 10am. 

The cost is £7.50 per person, which covers the planning and running of the sessions including the provision of water safety measures.

The designated course starts at Baltic Wharf just off Cumberland Road, near All Aboard’s Centre. The water quality is tested weekly to make sure it meets bathing water standards. 

Further details are available on All Aboard Watersports’ website.

Outside these times and route, swimming in the harbour remains prohibited.
