Joyful Swimming

It’s not a race, it’s an Open Water Adventure

 

Say Yes to Life Swims is the Northwest source of swim adventures (US). Our name stems from saying YES to new experiences, getting out of our comfort zones, and opening to the wonders around us. That’s what open water swimming is all about.

Join us for escorted open water swim events, Wilderness Excursions (re-starting in 2022), open water swim lessons, and customized adventure swims.

We celebrate our tenth year in 2021. Come celebrate with us!
