The longest estuary swim in the UK. Swim from the beautiful beach in Aberdovey all the way up to the tidal limit of the Dovey estuary covering 13km of splendour, a journey that transitions from coast to mountain, from salt water to river water...a remarkable point to point swim journey. Water temperature at the start will be around 15 degrees, and around 12 degrees at the finish.
