Joyful Swimming

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

Say Yes to Life Swims is the Northwest (U.S.) source of open water swim adventures. Our name stems from saying YES to new experiences, challenges, and sources of joy.

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

In 2021, we offered 14 incredible swims to celebrate our tenth year.
