Whether you’re swapping the swimming pool for open water or just enjoying a quick dip, staying safe and visible in the water is very important. This light, high-visibility, inflatable buoy is a great accessory for your open water adventures.

The bright orange colour keeps you visible in the water so passing watercraft can keep out of your way, and you can be easily spotted by lifeguards or your swimming group. It's also a great idea to wear a brightly coloured swim cap for extra visibility. 

The safety buoy includes an adjustable attachment strap which clips around the waist and does not hinder the athlete’s performance.

  • Provided with a practical handle for transportation out of water
  • Inflation and deflation safety valve

Open water swimming is a great sport with lots of health benefits, but before you head out on your adventure: 

  1. Be prepared. Check the weather and tides, choose your spot, go with a buddy, have the right equipment.
  2. If in doubt, don’t go out. No matter how much preparation you do, or how experienced you are, if a swim doesn’t feel right there is no shame in getting out of the water straight away, or not entering.
  3. Make sure you acclimatise to avoid cold water shock.
  4. Be seen. Wear a bright coloured swim hat and take a tow float.
  5. Stay within your depths.
  6. Float to live.
  7. Call 999 or 112 and ask for the coastguard in an emergency.
