Anyone coming on this trip must be able to swim as there is 3 short swims, the longest of which is about 50 metres. Also a wetsuit is mandatory as the water temperature is brisk to say the least. Some walkers may also prefer to bring a flotation device for the last and longest swim. Slippery rocks and cold water.
