“I can dive in with a long face and what feels like a terminal case of depression , and come out grinning like an idiot.” Roger Deakin – Waterlog
As dedicated Sea swimmers and addicts of the cold water we started Seabirds to spread this newfound knowledge and love to others who haven't discovered it yet and provide a safe community space for those who do. We love Cold Water Swimming because of what it does for our wellbeing.
We promote wild swimming through our talks and courses. We offer free community spaces to those who might face more barriers to swimming than those who find us more easily. We run our Women, Wellbeing and Water course free to those participating and in partnership with groups who might face more barriers to sea swimming and would potentially benefit from it.

We nurture our Salty Seabird Community group. Click HERE for more information
We have a link here to our 'Salty Library' - a non-exhaustive list of articles and films related to cold-water wild swimming and wellbeing and where to find out more. If anything is missing we welcome suggestions of what to add to it and update it.
Our blog - Pass the Salt - has lots of pieces written by Seabirds and members of our Salty Seabird Swim community which share thoughts and feelings about wellbeing and wild swimming.
