Here at Salford Watersports Centre we strive to ensure we are providing high quality, safe and an enjoyable experience. We only run ‘supervised sessions’ and all of our team are highly trained and qualified in what they do!
Whilst we aim to provide a safe environment, Open Water Swimming and Adventurous activities, especially in cold open water, does come with some risks. If you do choose to swim with us or take part in activity, you do so at your own risk. We recommend checking in and seeking approval from a your health professional if you have any medical concerns.
