    We understand you may be a skin-swimmer however we strongly advise to swim with a wetsuit because:

    -the water temperature could be colder and you could be swimming for longer and slower than what you are used to,

    -we may be swimming close to and around rocks: barnacles, sea shells and rocks may be sharp - another good reason to protect your skin!

    -on top of providing warmth and protecting your skin, a wetsuit will provide extra buoyancy for when we stop making it easier to enjoy the island and its surroundings.
