If you’d like to explore majestic west coast waters for a guided wild swim with RLSS open water safety cover, join a class to learn/relearn front crawl and open water skills or book a bespoke coaching experience, why not join him to immerse your senses in the pristine waters of the Argyll Hope Spot - a unique marine protected scenic area and first of its kind in Scotland and the U.K. This is Dan’s home - working sustainably and in harmony with the environment, unique biodiversity and local communities is a priority for him. He also offers sessions and experiences on the nearby inner Hebridean islands and across the awe-inspiring great arms of the sea that are Loch Linnhe and Loch Fyne.

With a background of over a decade in developmental physical education and athlete development, Scottish Swimming accredited teacher and STA Open Water Swim Coaching qualification, Dan’s approach is holistic and developmental. The art of coaching, teaching and guiding individuals to reaching their potential is very much his profession.

In the Wild. Into the Water.
